I finally finished up a quilt….
This is the quilt from Crazy Mom’s Quilt a Long from summer 2010. This is one of the quilts I made just to get some of my stash used up and it ended up turning out pretty good.
I make lots of quilts as gifts so when the local quilt shop was moving I bought a pack of fabric that had 37 sixteenth cuts. It was only $13. Then I found a 100 percent cotton white sheet at Goodwill still in the package for $2. So the quilt top was $15. Then I got the backing for $4 a yard on a clearance. The batting was sewn together scraps….so the quilt was about $39 total cost….woo-who!! Labor of course was PRICELESS….
The quilting is just some free hand hearts….and a name….well two names. Nicole and Kyle.
If you look real close you can see the names in the sashing….I like to “write names” in the quilting for quilts I am giving as a gift.
This quilt is for the neighbor gal and her soon to be husband. They are planning a New Year’s Eve wedding. I am hoping the weather is good for them. This December is setting record snow amounts around our area…
Stop back tomorrow…I’ll have a quick easy gift idea…just in case you’re snowed in and haven’t finished your shopping.
