Twin quilt finish!

Pin ItI just put the last stitch in the binding last night, and washed and dried this quilt today.  It likely looks familiar from my WIP posts, but I'm so happy to have this done-I have the top of the matching twin quilt done, just need to quilt and bind it.  I can't wait to give this to the little girls Mom who ordered them-so cute. 

I used pale pink Kona cotton for the back, a pale pink with white polka dots for the binding, and I used Aurafil Thread for the first time to quilt with and I loved it.  My stitches were even, sharp and the best I've ever seen my Pfaff work.  Definitely using it from now on.

Joining Finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts today!

Plus Quilt and The Library Challenge

Pin ItI missed the April link up for the Library Challenge-totally slipped my mind with the fair prep and all.  I finished another quilt top for the challenge, and I finished a toddler sized one today.  The plus quilt I made today was supposed to be a chevron quilt that I had down as part of the challenge, however, I felt that the fabric design would not look good as a chevron, and chose to do a plus instead.  I'm really happy with the design, super cute.  I found the pattern on the blog For the Love of George.

Twin size quilt tops for twin girls!! 

So, not doing too badly on the quilting front.  I'll be linking up today with Adrienne for the Library Challenge and also Amanda Jean for Finish it up Friday.  Hope everyone has a great long weekend!

Sweets quilt top finished

This pattern is from the Simply Retro book-I love how it displays the beautiful fabric so well.  It's part of a set of 2 quilts that will adorn the twin beds of a set of twin girls!!  Now, just to figure out how to quilt it-and of course piece the back, baste, quilt and bind.  So, as good as it feels to have the top done, I'm far from finished yet!

I'm sharing this WIP today with The Needle and Thread Network and Lee over at Freshly Pieced.
