Finally Finished ! ! !

It's so fulfilling when a quilt is finished!
It's kinda like saying...go ahead with that new project!
And here are 3 of my "finally finished" quilts.


2012 Mystery Quilt - Cat's Meow Pattern
I led my work quilting group thru this Mystery Quilt project 
last year.  Click here to see some of their quilts from
this challenge.  Amazing how colors give it a whole different feel.
I am so proud of their dedication and work on this challenge.
Michelle Mayton from Mansfield, Ohio 
did a beautiful custom quilting design!


LOVELY CUSTOM QUILTING


STASH BACKING



My BFF, Shirley Haller, who lives in Indiana, quilted the next tow quilts for me as my Christmas present.  Now that is an awesome present that I won't be returning!   LOL   

This is the NOVA pattern from the book Scrap Basket Quilts.  
 2 1/2" pastel batiks from a guild "fabric swap" 
with a bold jewel tone batik to frame it.


QUILTING CLOSE UP

This 2012 quilt began as a Bento Box pattern.  
I loved the Asian prints but the pattern 
just wasn't speaking to me as I placed it on the design wall. 
So I scrambled up the pieces and used my eyes to design the layout.
Now, I love it!


STASH BACKING




I will keep the Mystery Quilt, but the other Kwilty Pleasures
will end up as gifts to family members.

What's on your "finished" list?

  12. That Cat's Meow quilt is GORGEOUS!!! Unfortunately, the only thing I've finished this week is getting the receipts in order so our accountant can file our taxes... ;-)
