WIP Wednesday and Some Finishes

First things first, I have two finishes this week!  Here's my first finish:


This was a birthday quilt for #1's eighth birthday, which was last week. I couldn't quite get it done for the big day, but that's OK, there was plenty going on celebration-wise.

I used a star-and-loop all over pattern.  I wanted to keep it simple and boy-centric but also something that he would not grow out of.  Mr. Elvy helped me with the quilting again -- I quilted the first half, and he finished the rest.


This quilt turned out to be perfect for a twin-sized bed.  The fabric is Hometown by Sweetwater for Moda, except for the backing, which is from Sweetwater's Reunion collection.

I won't say too much about this one, as I already talked about it in my last post. However, I was able to get it bound relatively quickly so I'm happy about that.

 Last, but not least, I started putting together a new bag for our upcoming trip this summer. It's a mash-up of previous bags, using elements that I particularly liked from those patterns. I'll post the deets when I get it finished, hopefully by week's end!

Wow! You are on fire! I love that Hometown quilt. I am in the midst of making one myself but not as cute as yours. I just love that pattern. Your quilting is lovely and I love that you drag your husband into it as well. (Have just reread my comment and it seems there's a lot of love here - I need to get myself a new verb!)
