Friday Finishes

I have acquired a bit of fabric since last January, but I’m still living off my stash. I recently completed several baby quilts. Quick and fun.
Here’s the front and back of a baby quilt that used Angela Water’s Coral pattern. It’s for a dear friend’s first grandchild.

This one will go to the Wrapped in Love group at my former church. It’s made from orphan blocks from a bed quilt I have yet to finish. I didn’t think I could find a suitable back in my stash, but I tried using the wrong side of a bright turquoise and yellow print and it worked well.

I’ve had this fish fabric for years and wanted to try Fresh Lemon’s Lemon Squares pattern with some Kona solids. I had enough to make two baby quilts.

The one I finished late this afternoon is almost the last of my Comma fabric. I am partial to Zen Chic’s designs. This pattern is the old stack of coins pattern that is great for using up odd sized strip scraps. I promise you, the vertical rows on this quilt are straight! I did narrow straight line channel quilting on it. My phone photo doesn’t do this one justice. It really needs to be photographed on the floor with a baby on it.
And today on my doorstep I found this! A complete fat quarter bundle of Far Far Away.

I was a winner of a random drawing from Windham Fabrics. I am a huge fan of Heather Ross’s charming illustrations and her Far Far Away fabric line does not disappoint.


  1. All of these are so fresh and vibrant...well done. How nice to win that sweet bundle and add to your stash without spending a thing.

  2. It is so much fun to be a winner. Congrats.
