Two Finishes!

I finally got back to a few quilts that needed binding.  Here's a little log cabin table topper.
Simple primitive quilting to match the simple quilt.
This backing came from my friend Jill's sewing room after she passed away last year. It reminds me of the cute little things we collect and cherish.
Here's the Love More I made with the P&B fabric. After my trip to Guatemala I think it means more to me now than when I made it.
Here's a close up you can see the fabric. I'm going to give this to the woman I went to Guatemala with as we shared so much and we both learned to deepen our love to others.
Here's the scrappy backing.

Happy Wednesday!

  2. Both quilts are wonderful for very different reasons.

    I often think about what will happen to my quilts and my stash when I depart this mortal coil. I should probably add something to my will to make sure that they all go to good homes.

  6. Love the back of the log cabin and I'm sure you cherish it even more because it came from your friend. The "love more" line is something that I might never had purchased but you have made such a wonderful quilt that it has inspired me to move out of my comfort zone a bit more! Thanks.

  13. I had forgotten what your quilt made with the P&B fabrics looks like. It was an interesting line of fabric. So very different from my normal choice of fabrics. I did not quilt my piece.

  14. When I first saw your log cabin quilt I thought "That looks like a Jill quilt!" So imagine my surprise when I saw the backing actually was from Jill's stash! Love it.

  16. Great finishes. The quilting adds so much---texture and cohesion. Love the backings. You *know* I always want to see the backs!

  17. The stitching is perfect for your log cabin! What a great little quilt.:) Your second quilt is so interesting to me. Love how it kind of blends together in places!

  19. Happy Day to have 2 finishes. Binding is always my Favorite part. The Backing fabric on the first quilt is Great, I like the keys and Silouettes. Sweet dreams, do you take a Nap under them after they are all finished?

  20. Like Mary, I also love doing the binding. Not only the process, but also because its the home stretch and becomes a finished quilt when its done. Well... then there's the label and the sleeve, which I don't enjoy so much! LOL!

    Such a nice tribute to your friend ~
