A Bits & Pieces Finish....And Don't Forget The Giveaway

This little quilt has been sitting well over a year all basted and ready for hand quilting; constantly shoved to the bottom of the priority list. It is now a finish thanks to some simple custom machine quilting.
Above photo is a look at the scrap back.


It's a sweet little quilt. I hadn't realized I cut so much off in the photo. I tried to pin it to another quilt behind to take the picture. This little quilt is now a gift and I've got just the right person in mind for it.

Don't forget to sign up for the pattern giveaway on the previous post!

Fiesta said...

Beautiful Mary. Though you are gifting that one, where do you generally display your little quilts?

onlymehere said...

Whoever this is intended for is lucky indeed! I love the colors, the pattern and the quilting. I'm looking at quilting more bz I have a goal to someday have a long-arm. We'll see what life brings and how soon I can accomplish that goal. For now, I'm happy learning from what others do and getting inspiration from them on their piecing also.

Pat said...

Cute cute quilt - it's from one of my favorite books, lots of great ones in that book. You know I might even have a kit for the quilt, LOL. I need check out my kit basket again, wait maybe I don't want to know, lol. Nice quilting job.

It's so good being back to blogging from my "way too long" furlow. Your blog just makes me feel "homey" because I immediately get the "fall" feeling - my favorite time of year.

You make me smile :-).

Love your Little Quilt. As always, such wonderful work.
