I Kept My Word

As I said in my previous post, I will not start another quilt top until I quilt two that are waiting to be quilted,'s one that I finished quickly. I don't have a photo of the whole thing because lighting just wasn't cooperating, no matter where I tried to take a photo. The floral nine-patches were too washed out in all the photos, so all you get is this. But it's just a simple top. I had nine identical leftover nine-patches that I had made more than five years ago for a block exchange in my guild, so I just quickly added them to some solid fuschia fabric, used the same floral fabric for the backing, and then added a fun green bias stripe for the binding. The quilt is now in the hands of my guild's Outreach chair, who will find it a good home.

This used up 2 yards out of my pre-2013 stash!

Now it's time to quilt another top!

I love striped bindings. Feels good to get one done, doesn't it?

I'm hoping to do the same. My goal for 2014 is to finish the ufo's that are hanging around here :-)

Great finish! I have always loved the piecing part the best...though it did help the finishing when I got my midarm.
