Two finishes!

This week I managed to finish two quilts that have been in my WIP pile for far too long. The first is a lovely quilt from my do.Good Stitches circle from March of last year. Sigh. The blocks are reverse applique and they all looked so pretty and spring-y. I love how it turned out and it felt great to mail it off to Threading Hope yesterday.

The second finish is a mini quilt using the Wild Olive Summer Stitching Club pattern that I bought back in 2013. Sigh. I used a mix of American Made Brand solids for the embroidered hexies, and hand quilted with DMC Pearl Cotton.

I had some doubts about my color choices after I started embroidering, but I think the pink binding pulls everything together nicely. I'm happy to hang this up for summer!


  1. Neat! Both projects turned out well!

  2. Congratuations on two beautiful finishes! Nice work.

  3. you're right, pink binding brings out the stitcheries blocks. So very cute!!

  4. Those are great finishes (especially love the cute embroidery)! Can totally relate to the WIP pile.
