Finish! Kitchen Sink Scrap Quilt

Happy Finish News!  Wooo-hoo!

I have a fully complete quilt to share.  I started this as a way to use scraps to make the back of a quilt and too many people protested and said that it was worthy of being it's own quilt.  I caved and promoted it to being a top.

It's bright, fresh, fun and used up all kinds of leftover bits.


Here is a close up showing the quilting.  I did a simple loop-dee-loo that stitched up super quick and is whimsical and bouncy.


 In other news-- I splurged on a photography frame to hang quilts on to get better photos.  One slight problem right now--  I have limited daylight hours that I'm not at work and then Mother Nature has made those times windy and/or rainy!  I tried to take pictures outside, but it was way too windy.  Here's a picture showing the frame. I ended up setting up on my covered front porch and had a little bit of wind protection.


This quilt is one of my Q4 Finish-A-Long projects.  And I will be donating it to the Dane County Foster Program on behalf of the Mad City Quilt Guild.

xoxo,
Kristin

  2. What bright and fun quilt! Great use of scraps. I know how you feel about the shorter daylight this time of year. I end up saving all my picture taking for the weekend when I'm off work!

  4. It was too happy not to be on a front. So cute! It looks about 60 inches, which is a nice manageable size. I'm with Monona Quilters and love making Project Linus quilts.
