A round up of finishes for first quarter

Yay!! After a stitching marathon last night to complete the binding (I wasn't going to bed until it was done) - my Swoon quilt is finished.

This is the back of the quilt - a rather frugal attempt to use up fabric in my stash instead of buying more. What started off as a quick idea in my head turned out to be quite a long winded project as I made cutting error after cutting error finally managing to piece together something big enough. It wasn't square however and was a nightmare for the quilter. Thank goodness for machine quilters! Love the giant baptist fans.

So below is an update on my first quarter finishes -there have been a few set backs but all in all it is nice to see a couple of projects off the list. Will keep plugging away the following quarter.


  1. Wow!! This quilt is absolutely fantastic - and huge!! I love the colours and the quilting. I've got to try that fan design sometime! Thanks so much for participating in the Finish-A-Long, on behalf of the 2016 hosts!

    1. thank you Stacey for your lovely comment. It certainly was a fun one to do and I wouldn't mind making it again sometime which is unusual for me - usually a one timer per quilt design.
