Two finished Quilts

By | March 15, 2020

I finished two quilts yesterday! One with machine binding on both the front and back and one sewing the binding to the front of the quilt and hand sewing it to the back of the quilt. This DOUBLES my UFO finishes from 2 to 4 for the year (plus one non UFO finish)! Not very impressive but way better than I was doing.

The first completed quilt is called Big and little patch quilt and was made from an excess of 16 patches and 4 patches:

The second quilt is the Baby sized Idaho square dance quilt that was made from a row of extra Idaho Square Dance Blocks designed by Bonnie Hunter, plus some sashing and borders:

I’m already working on hand sewing down another binding and have another quilt in the queue waiting to for the binding to be sewn down when that one is finished. Plus there is a quilted quilt top waiting for binding to be chosen and sewn on to it.  I’m starting to make some traction towards my goal of 24 completions in 2020.

    I’m impressed you’ve gotten UFOS done. I like your big and little scrap quilt the best. Hum, did you use 2″ squares by chance? I need to make a dent in my 2″ square collection!

    Lovely finishes! I’m awed by your goal of 24 finishes for the year – I don’t come anywhere close to that. So I’m very impressed with 4 finishes already!

    I just found out I need to make another boy baby quilt and your Big and Little Patches quilt with the light blue background looks like an easy design and great scrap buster.

    Great scrappy finishes! I really like the Big and little patch quilt uses up so many little squares of fabric! Idaho square dance is a great 2 color quilt!

    Both quilts are wonderful! That’s still an average of more than one quilt a month finished, so I would feel pretty good about that!

    Nice quilts; especially Big and Little Patches–I’m adding that one to my list of quilts-to-make-someday
