It's a 3 Finish Friday!

It feels great to cross 3 more UFOs off the list!
"Boxed in Brights" alternates Happy Blocks with bright squares of fabric. The black and white prints came from a FQ swap and the brights were from my stash. I used a fun print of small eggs on black for the binding.
I love this over-sized print on the back!
I used black King Tut thread on the top and white Aurifil on the back for quilting with walking foot waves.
"Rainbow Sherbet - Hold the Lime!" is yet another Yahoo! Stashbuilders Happy Blocks swap quilt. I had asked for borders to be only shades of yellow, orange and pink for these blocks. LOVE this color scheme and I found a perfect peace sign backing fabric.
I used wonky wavy lines to quilt this - orange Essentials (Connecting Threads) thread on top and white Aurifil on the back.
"Purple 9 Patch on Lime" was made using the pattern Nine Patch from the book "Even More Quilts for Baby" by Ursula Reikes. It's backed in a cute daisy print with bumblebees sniffing the lime centers.
I grid quilted the center of the quilt and the lavender inner border with lavender Essentials thread and white Aurifil on the back. The border has 2 wavy lines along each side.
These quilts will be donated to Project Linus, are UFO Finishes 11, 12 & 13 for 2013 and put me at 7 towards my goal of 50 Kids Quilts for the year. I'm linking up to TGIFFCan I Get a Whoop Whoop?, Finish It Up FridayLet's Make Baby Quilts and Link a Finish Friday.

February Finishes

  1. Love them all, but the sherbet colored one is just the best. Some little girl will fall in love with that one for sure!

    Wish I could mark off some accomplishments like these too. But since I have not even set foot in my sewing room since Monday, it isn't likely to happen. Someday soon . . .

  2. Three great finishes, good job! It's funny you should mention "Even More Quilts for Baby" by Ursula Reikes. When my oldest was a baby, I started sewing just to make clothes for her-never intended to try quilting. I found "More Quilts for Baby: As Easy as ABC"by her, and it explained strip piecing and EASY quilting. I made a quilt in 1998, and I have been hooked ever since thanks to Ms. Reikes!
