Finish it up on Friday!

A post from Kelli–

Most of the time it’s Mom who has a finish, but today is my day…well, kind of.  My version of a “finished” quilt means that the center is done.  I don’t really like putting on borders, quilting, or binding.  As such, I have a plethora (probably around8 large and 8 small) of quilts that are finished to my specifications.  So when I heard that a co-worker’s father-in-law had recently had a stroke and his family was planning a benefit, I immediately knew that I wanted to finish a quilt.  When sorting through my trunk of quilts, I came across this completed top that I had previously made using the Charity Crosses pattern from Moda Bakeshop.  I added two squares from my stash and made the quilt 6 blocks by 7 blocks.

Today, I am hooking up with……Confessions of a Fabric AddictLink a Finish FridayFreedom Fridays and Crazy Mom Quilts.

    Cute quilt! And that is one nice thing about having several tops nearly done. You have more variety when picking one for a quick finish when you want to give one for an occasion such as this.
