My first finish was to bind my "Jelly Parfait" quilt...one of my favorite quilts ever! Not only do I love this because it's a scrappy version (I used fabrics from 3 Fig Tree lines, Mill House Inn, Fresh Cottons, and Breakfast at Tiffany's), but I also love it because the quilting on it is stunning! Diana, who does all of the amazing quilting for Joanna did the long-arm work on this quilt (you can contact Diana about her quilting at QuiltedGrammy@aol.com).
here). You can sew them on by machine or by hand...I actually sewed mine on by hand using a double strand of matching quilting thread.
I also made a bag using Breakfast at Tiffany's...I love the rich colors of these fabrics...the combination of the blues and browns are my favorites! Again I used a purse handle, which I love!
Also finished up my end of summer bag using Meadowsweet 2.
(Another picture of the same bag...had to show both sides)!
I made it reversible with fabrics from the first Meadowsweet on the other side. So...one quilt bound, borders and backs on another, three bags and an apron...oh, and I sewed another quilt back (not pictured). With these finishes checked off--I think I'm going to start a few more projects--that's okay, right?! Have a great day!
