Friday Finish: Lincoln

I deserve mother of the year award…well at least mother of the day award.  Kelli loves sewing but hates finishing…so who finishes her projects..ME!!  That’s why I deserve mother of the day awards.

Lincoln

This is Lincoln, a Miss Rosie Schnibble pattern.  I just love it.  I made a larger version in Red, white, and blue a few years ago…I loved that version too.  You can see it here.

Silly Ruby was insistant that she wanted to be in the picture.  Can you believe how cute she is??   I laid out the quilt.  She jumped on it.  I snapped two picture and gave her a treat.  She is so good at posing.

I used a tan thread-Superior #425.  LOVE THAT THREAD!!  It goes well with everything.

Just a simple stipple.  It’s my go to design on small quilts.  It is so relaxing to do.

The backing is a flannel from Goodwill that I picked up.  I thought it was about perfect.

The fabric is an old Moda line except for the binding.  I hunted and hunted to find something in my stash that would work. I finally came up with an orange-y Moda fabric.  It’s from their “Grunge” line.  I loved it…and I followed my daughter Kalissa (the daughter that doesn’t sew)’s  rule.  Always pick the darkest color in your quilt and use that for the binding.  I have to admit, it’s good advice.
