Whoo we have a finish…

It has been over a month since I posted my last finished quilt and I am feeling a little slack for not finishing something up sooner… life really just kept getting in the way.  But after some quilting and binding I am pleased to present…

finished baby blue quilt…my baby blue log cabin quilt.   This quilt was made using scraps left over from the quilt I made my sister-in-law and the top was put together in record time… and then just sat with my other UFO’s until I took pity on it last week.

    • I am in the process of trying to organize my stash and I was extra thrilled to be using my IKEA fabric as it is so hard to fold like the other fabric because it is so wide. I am now striving to get more fabric gone…which means more quilts finished!
