Clearing the backlog…

I have been working hard this week to start clearing the backlog of quilt tops I have floating around my work space.  What is spurring me on is the fact that I have not donated quilts to Project Linus for a couple of months now and am feeling a little bad about it.

So I spent yesterday day basting some tops up and managed in amongst it all to get my 1001 Peeps top finally finished.  I first blogged about this quilt months ago (you can find the link here).  So without further ado here is finally a compete finish.

Finished 101 peeps quilt

I love the 1001 Peeps range by Lizzy House, actually I love everything Lizzy House does.  She is one of my favorite fabric designers and you will see her Pearl Bracelet range in just about everything I do.

This square in square pattern is so easy and just perfect for fussy cutting.

I backed the quilt using scrap bits of the fabric I had left over from making the front and a splash of solids.

Finally I bound and labeled the quilt so it is now ready for delivery to the Project Linus meeting this month.

I am hoping to get at least another two tops finished this week.  Wish me luck.

  1. Love it! Now, enter something in the State Fair. Tonight is the last chance to enter online and drop off is in Portland mid August.

  2. Beautiful 🙂 I’m really drawn to blue quilts, having girls I’m always surrounded by pink. But the blue tones in this quilt are really relaxing and I’m sure some little one will love snuggling in it and looking at all the little pictures (I love the camel!)

  3. You have been awarded the Versatile Blogger icon, I’m sorry that this is a little like an old chain letter as there are some responsibilities if you choose to accept, but it was given because I truly do enjoy your blog 🙂

    Warm regards, Caroline aka lalinsocal
