Happy Valentine Finish Up

I am so happy with this one.  When I take all the Christmas decorations down the house feels so empty- here is the quilt that will always go out- for Valentines.

 I took these pictures out in Fergus, Ontario after I finished doing some family history at the archives there.  It was so nice to drive out in the country.
Here is the next project...  I am going to visit my old APQS and so some quilting on it next week- can't wait.  I used Amanda Jean's no triangle tutorial for this- it worked a lot better the second time.  The first time I attempted this quilt it was a total disaster.  This quilt will be for my almost three year old who will be sharing his room with the new baby who is due to arrive 7 weeks from today!!

Finish It Friday

My second commissioned piece.  My sweet friend Marla's mother was a quilter and she passed away before she could finish this quilt.  I quilted and bound it.  It is such a lovely quilt, I did not want to give it back!!
Cute little blanket.

A little Densye Schmidt action for the inside.

A little nesting going on... the two bottom quilts were made from minkee scraps and some cute flannel.

Still not sure if I love the dark backing but I sure love the softness of it.  I do like the gingham binding.
