quilt finish || #2 + link party for monday

*To see if you won the Spoonflower sampler, click here.

It's here.  My number 2 quilt is done.  It's actually been done for awhile, but I just haven't gotten around to taking photos.

This quilt is actually for my sister, but since she doesn't read my blog, it's okay to post it early.  She does not like modern things like I do, so I chose to do a simple pattern.   By making some of the blocks wonky and the quilting not straight, it allowed me to impart a little of my modern taste.  I really love the backside, which can stand alone.   It does not need the front to make an impact.

Warning . . . lots of yummy photos ahead.

Stats:  57" x 52", hand stitched binding, Isacord polyester thread for topstitching, Aurifil 40wt for piecing, Quilter's Dream cotton batting
Fabrics: Lotta Jansdotter Bella and Echo line, Anna Maria Horner Bubble Burst, Alexander Henry Heath, brown squiggly lines from Benartrex,  Kona -Jade Green, Charcoal, and White

And since I am not counting . . . ;)

So I am curious to see what all you have been doing.  How about a little linky party on Monday?  Sound good?  Great!  You will be able to link up ANYTHING, and I don't do the funny force following thingy on you guys.  :)   Recipes, DIY projects, home decorating, crafting, quilting, sewing, Etsy shops, something you did a few months ago, a picture of you shaving, are you still reading this?

See you Monday!
