Finished!

My first finish for 2009...my Amy Butler Daisy Chain quilt is complete...binding and all! I have named this quilt "Sea Glass" since it reminds me of everything "ocean!"

I also got my first "whirlygiggle" quilt top finished (sorry about this photo). The pattern was a lot of fun...I'll definitely be making more quilts from this pattern. I used my left-over Mary Englebreit fabrics for this one and will be looking for some red fabric with white polka dots for the binding!
Also, have you seen the new Moda Bakeshop blog...there are wonderful free patterns from a variety of Moda designers...you'll have to go look! Oh...and I've been working on my Etsy shop...it's not going quickly...but I'm getting there! Happy Sewing!

Such beautiful quilts. I love the name for the Sea Glass quilt. We collect sea glass and those are definitely the colors!!! I noticed that you use the clips for the binding. Do you like them? I hate getting stuck with the straight pins that I uses.

I LOVE both of them! I have charm packs ready to do a whirligig. I'm just trying to finish a few other things first!

I love both quilts! I just finished cutting squares to make a quilt with those same Amy Butler fabrics. I really like what you did with your fabrics! And sea glass is such a wonderful name for it.
