A brand new finish!

 My motto for the next couple of months is FINISH IT!  So here is the first...

This quilt started last fall when I pulled out a turnover that had been sitting in my stash for far too long.    I wanted a project that wouldn't require much planning and no deadline.  After planning the layout, the top went together very quickly. 


 The project proceeded pretty quickly to the basting stage and I knew I wanted to try spiral quilting it.  And then it sat like this until June...


when I had my machine out to quilt the Sweet as Honey quilt that you can see my previous post. 



Once again the quilt sat...(Do you see a theme here? Apparently I procrastinate a lot!)  But yesterday I pulled it out, attached the binding and spent a couple of hours after the kids were in bed hand stitching the binding.



Those two pictures above show the quilt before I washed it.  The back show the spiral off really well!.


This is after washing, it got nice and soft.  The crinkly nature of a washed quilt is my favorite it part!


I've decided to gift this quilt to one of my husband's coworkers.  They are expecting a little girl in about a month and I think this will be perfect for our cold winters.
