It’s Sunday again and I have a stash report….but before I get to that, I want to show you my latest finish! Happy news…it’s my July UFO too!!
I put the final stitches in the binding at about 1 pm yesterday. The quilt was a wedding present. We left for the wedding at about 4:30pm so it was cutting my time a bit close.
I was a little sad to give this one away. Somehow there was something about this quilt being two colored, cream and red, I almost felt like it was a showcase of my red and cream fabric collection at the time I cut the quilt out. Silly, I know, but true.
I started this quilt last July when my daughter Kelli and I went to see Bonnie Hunter in Storm Lake, Iowa. I am trying to make it my goal to have both of the quilts I started at that retreat finished by the time the year anniversary of going is up. My Pineapple Blossom quilt top is finished and the back is pieced. I am hoping to put that one in the quilt machine tomorrow…
I do want to thank Bonnie first for the free quilt pattern that you can find here….and second for the advice. At the class I asked Bonnie if I should add pinks. Bonnie said yes. I really think the pinks really make the quilt look better that it would if it was all reds.
(Ignore the peeling porch paint. I went to scrap and paint it this spring and realized that the wood is so rotten it isn’t worth painting.) All in all it was a fun quilt. I hope the couple enjoys it!!
