January 2018 Finish!!!!

I finished!

 This quilt is finished and washed and ready to use.
It has some fun little bits on it. Like this heart
And these smaller hearts.
The back is pieced also
And here are a couple of angled shots so hopefully you can see more of that wonderful free motion quilted texture.

The fabric I picked for the binding is a fun print that became much cooler cut on the bias.
So - Yaay for my first quilt finish for the year.  May it be one of many!

Gene I LOVE It!! I love scrappy crazy quilts. Do I see a bunch of strips of American Samoan fabric possibly from Barb in the top left corner? If so, I have a hand sewing project with the same fabrics. Some of my favorite fabrics. Looking forward to your next big finish.

Great job! It is a very pretty and cheerful looking quilt.

I think if I had ever mastered (or even progressed as far as "acceptable"!) free motion quilting I'd still be making quilts. I love doing the pieced tops but hand quilting was too slow and cumbersome, straight row machine quilting too boring, and free motion quilting beyond me.
You do such a lovely job on yours. What do you do with all your quilts? Do you sell? Give as gifts? Pile them on beds? Hang them on walls?

This is going to look great on the bed, Gene. Such happy colors and fun design. I'm so envious of your ability to machine quilt. I like the texture on this one very much.

Congratulations on your first 2018 finish!
