First Finishes of '15

Today just happens to be Finish it Up Friday!  I have a few finishes to share.

First off, my very first finished quilt top~

This one is Kate Spain's Sunnyside and Bella solids HST quilt.  I have been wanting to make this one for quite some time.  I love playing around with HST's but they do take a while to square up - even with my Loc Bloc.

My trimmings.

Next up is a big finish.  And I do mean BIG!  A flannel quilt 116" x 120" for our bed.  I made pillows, pillow cases and shams to match.  Now this was an simple, easy quilt.  But that is what I wanted.  Handling the size made it difficult.

It has been washed and dried in this picture and I am impressed with the quality of the flannel.  The reds did not bleed at all.  The fabric is Bonnie and Camille's Miss Kate.

I also got two mini quilt tops done this week.  

The first one is to hang at the office for the upcoming month.  I used this free pattern from Fat Quarter Shop called Color My Heart.  The "love" was paper pieced using a pattern from Kim Noblin of Block Central.  Of course, my white kitty was helping out by laying on top of the sewing machine. Silly cat!

The second mini if for the IG #rainbowminiswap.  I am on #rainbowteampurple.  This one has been a challenge as it is intricate and took me some time.  It has lots of different fabrics from my stash.  And a few I just HAD to buy.  The pattern is Geese Crossing by Three Owls Handmade.

Oh I hope my partner likes it!  Tomorrow is work out and quilting mini day.  

What Friday Finishes do you have?  Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts.


  1. Geese Crossing is a major winner in my book. I have not gone to the link yet to see what other colors quilters used but yours are fabulous. I like the way they make me feel - happy.

    1. Thank you! That has to be one of the highest compliments ever - that it makes you feel happy! I keep singing "Why are there so many songs about rainbows" while making this.

  2. I love your rainbow mini top! The colors are great, and I love the combination of fabrics you used!

  3. Your geese crossing block is awesome!! So bright and cheerfull!

    1. Thanks Karen! I hope my swap partner likes it.
