I've been working on finishing up quilts that have been laying around in the closet. Most are tops. This one was already sandwiched and basted I just had to rip out some quilting that I didn't like, and that's why it was just sitting. I made this about 2 years ago and never finished it. It was for a family member who had just had a baby. But I just wasn't crazy about it. So I made them something else. I finally finished this quilt last week and I think it did turn out pretty cute after all.
I had this top for years too. Just sitting and waiting. My mom wanted it, so I finished it up for her over the weekend. It's from Eleanor Burns Underground Railroad Sampler book. The blocks are not in the order that supposedly tells the story because I used to use this top to cover an open closet we used to have. I layed the blocks out so my favorites were showing. This was a fun quilt and I plan on making one for myself. You know, on that ever long and growing list that us quilters have!
I still have to quilt this one from last year's Old Red Barn Co.'s quilt along.
My first whirlygig quilt is all quilted and I am hand stitching the binding down now. I have another one in progress. I feel like I'm getting caught up on some things and that feels good.
