100 Quilts for Kids, Finish #2.
I cut fabric and started the blocks for this quilt while on my quilting retreat back in May. I finished the quilt top in good time, and then, after basting it, I kinda forgot it was there. From the beginning, I had planned to donate the top to Project Linus, and I was super stoked when 100 Quilts for Kids lined up with it because I love 100QfK.
When I did finally get around to quilting it, I quilted it in a square grid, six inches apart. I usually plan my quilting around the block design, but this was new for me, and I had to mark out all of the lines.
The quilting was fast, and I even went so far as to cut and prepare the binding, and once again, the quilt sat, bypassed by more interesting and more time pressing projects. (I love the binding and backing fabrics. Those huge dots are divine, and a pink houndstooth? Incomparable.)
Until! Now she's all done, and I'm ready to drop her off for Project Linus. I'm linking up today with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday and Amy's Crafty Shenanigans for TGIFF.
Oh, and did I mention this is a finish from my 2013 Q3 FAL list?
