Friday Finish: Children's Delight quilt
It's Friday, and once again, I have a finish to share! Thanks to Amandajean of "Crazy Mom Quilts" for setting up her regular Friday Finish link parties, where I'll be sharing again. It's been a great motivator for me to get these UFO's done!
I started this quilt over 2 years ago, with one of the first charm square pre-cut fabric packs that I ever bought. I'm not a big fan of pre-cuts, but the more quilts I make with them, the more they grow on me!
With all of the seams in this quilt, I decided to just use my walking foot and quilt it with "stitch in the ditch". Now that I'm much better at free-motion quilting, I can finally understand why experienced quilters say it's actually faster to free-motion that to do this. It took a long time, but I like how it turned out.
I was lucky enough to have a nice 3 yard piece of a fabric I got on clearance when I lived in Michigan (where I also bought the charm pack). It was just barely enough, and looks great! I'm pretty sure this is the last big piece of fabric that I had in my stash from Michigan :(.
With these pretty crocuses popping up in our yard, and the weather being so pretty, I'm going to be outside playing the rest of the day! How about you?
