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.
And, here's my second finish:
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!
I'm linking again this week to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced -- go check out this linky party for some inspiration!
