At the beginning of this year, I posted about all the quilt tops that have been stacking up and needed to be finished. That post is here. I'm so pleased to have 2 completed and can't be more happy with how they all turned out.
This one didn't get finished in time for the holidays but is now ready for next years celebration.
when I was creating the quilt back, I had originally decided to make this into a wall hanging. So I thought a good idea would be to use up some jo-anns Christmas flannel from a couple of years ago since no one would see the back. I ended up piecing a bunch of different flannels together along with some grey solid scraps.
I'm not a big fan of jo-anns fabric quality, but the flannels turned out to be a good choice and use of fabrics from my stash. Once this was finished I decided to keep in as a quilt and not turn it into a wall hanging. I also tried my hand at a little free hand quilting around the boarders, so much fun!
the binding is that's all stripe from Michael Miller's holiday fabrics, which is currently on sale.
the next quilt I completed is made out of Anna Maria Horner's little folks voile's, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE how it turned out.
this is also a quilt kit, here.
I love the back on this, which is little folks flannel forest hills in glow. It is so soft. I had some scraps of voile that I used together with the flannel as a chunky boarder on one of the sides.
I did some straight lined quilting and bound it in dobby dots lilac from the original pastry line from little folks.
I love this quilt and the voile is just so nice and soft to snuggle in.
