Friday Finish

This week I was reading blog posts and a squirrel got me. Not only was it a squirrel, it was a DrEAMI!

I have to thank Sandra from MMM Quilts for writing about the sweet Gingham Quilt she wrote about that she saw on Nancy’s blog Grace and Peace Quilting. I just had to make it (twice!)

I pulled some leftover 5” squares from my scrap saver system and quickly put together a trial quilt top. I loved it enough to layer it up and I’m just finishing the quilting today. 😉

Then I pulled some fabric from my stash and did some cutting. I needed to make a baby quilt for a wee one that arrived this week. Her Momma loves green and yellow so that’s what I needed to work with.

I managed to finish it on Friday because I had a fun backing fabric. I did some simple Stitch in the Ditch quilting with a beautiful grey Aurifil thread which Ed blended perfectly with the top.

The quilt was delivered last night to their doorstep and Momma was pleased with the “perfect fabrics”. 😉

Thanks for taking the time to read my post. 😉 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. Absolutely fantastic two quilts! Aren’t they a blast? I have a magazine quilt looming and another for a blog hop so I CANNOT scratch the itch just yet to make another!

  3. Hi Carol! I’ve been strong . . . I’m going to try to stay strong . . . but those gingham quilts are just the bomb. And yours are so cute!! And to think you just had these sitting in a box, waiting for their turn to shine. I’m so glad the squirrel got to you! LOVE them. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Hi Elizabeth. They are so much fun and a great way to use up those smaller bits of leftover fabric. Just be warned; they are addicting; you can’t stop with just one 😉
