Batik Urban Birthday :: A Finish

I'm still in the midst of my binding marathon! I'm very glad to be finished with the second and last of the batik quilts as hand sewing with batik fabric is not my favorite.

The top was completed back in May 2015. Click here for that blog post. I really like this pattern and have made two versions of it. This batik one and one using a French General layer cake. This pattern is a great one for a beginner to curved piecing so I'll be teaching it soon again, but this time at my shop.

Granny Squares :: A Finish

My mom pieced this one and sent it to me to finish.

It has been patiently waiting to be quilted for several years. I sent it to a local long arm quilter with the rest of the quilts I have been showing lately to be quilted.

I will probably donate this one to charity. Not sure which charity just yet but I will find it a good home.

Modern Gratitude :: A Finish

The top was completed back in January 2017. It was a one of the scrap group projects at my shop that year. Click here to read that post.

I really like this one and I'm glad that it is finally finished so I can enjoy it. Once I started pulling out completed tops to take to the quilter I began finding them every where! I had lots more completed tops than I realized. I've emptied one storage area of completed tops but they keep turning up! Now instead of just putting them back I'm pulling backing fabric, batting and sending them to a local long arm quilter. I'm determined that my son will not inherit a bunch of completed tops. He may inherit a bunch of completed, unused quilts - but I'm fine with that.

Colorful Death Stars :: A Finish

My original name for this quilt was Circle Dance. I completed the top back in March of 2014. Click here to read that post. I made it as a class sample which I taught at my old LQS, before I opened my store.

When I pulled this one out to send it to the quilter my husband said, "I remember that one. It looks like colorful Death Stars." So that is now it's name. This one is currently hanging in our dining room.

Metro Rings :: A Finish

Another finish. The pattern is Metro Rings by Sew Kind of Wonderful. If you've ever wanted to make a double wedding ring quilt but haven't yet because it's a hard pattern, I highly recommend this pattern instead. The rings are strip pieced and then the rings are cut from the strip sets using the Quick Curve Ruler.

I completed the top in October 2015 but just recently got it quilted and finished. Click here to read the post where I shared the completed top. I've actually been getting a lot of things quilted lately. So stayed tuned ... the snow finally cleared enough in the backyard so I can get to the fence to take better quilt photos.
