At last a finish

It's been a while since I last finished a quilting project but this week I have a finish. The nine patch quilt is finally done. This quilt is made from blocks created for the 2015 Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  This quilt is going to my younger daughter Lucy and she is looking forward to snuggling under it when she watches TV or reads in an evenning. I realised a little earlier that I hadn't taken a photo so I had to lay it out on my bed instead of taking it outside since it is already dark. Picasso was taking a little nap and refused to move so the 'lump' in the quilt is him, still curled up and trying to pretend I don't exist.

I pieced the back for this quilt and of course I did it as a big nine patch. Picasso decided to come out and pose on the quilt but kept his back to me!

I love the houses on this fabric and it works well as the backing. The quilt will go to its new home tomorrow.

Today I also worked on Buddy's quilt. I made the top for a blog hop earlier in the year. I had intended to quilt it last month but run out of time so it became my goal for November. I decided to quilt in the ditch.

I spilt something on the quilt so I shall have to wash it when it's finished.  Tomorrow I'll trim the quilt and add the binding. This could even be a finish by the end of next week.

This evening I hand stitched some hexies  for the Garden quilt. It is exciting to be stitching again. I really should have done some work today but I've taught for four days this week and just needed a change of pace and activitiy. I'll get the work done tomorrow.

I'm linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday. Tomorrow there will be some more time for sewing. I wonder what I can achieve over the day.



  1. Congrats! on your RSC finish. Buddy's quilt turned out well, too!

  2. Your daughter is going to love her quilt and Picasso really matched the backing!

  3. Both quilts are beautiful. I love the nine patch. Great idea for a pieced back.
