A Finish!

Can it really be? Did I actually complete something? Why yes, yes I did!
Crayon Box

Not a boring backing.

I finished the hand stitching of the binding on this crayon box quilt at bowling Thursday. This was not a UFO... but rather a project from the RSC Challenge this year. I believe I somehow started this on the multi color month I think? It is a little one finishing off at 44x58.

That means I can start something new..... ok, most of these are new purchases for the triangle quilt for Emily... but a couple of the pinks came from stash. I have 132 - 6.5 inch triangles cut out. I need 204....must search a little more in the stash to find the last ones needed.

From some of the above scraps I cut out my 4 inch squares to make the last of the spring blossom blocks. 5 will get made at some point.



Linking up with the RSC Challenge. Since I had a 3 hour nap after bowling this morning with the kids (and the splitting sinus headache finally went away) I might have sewing time later tonight when I know I won't be tired!

  4. Those are fun colors. I am sure that Emily will love her new quilt. Congratulations on starting and finishing a quilt in the same year. That almost never seems to happen for me.

  10. Crayon Box is the perfect name for this quilt. It must have come from the 48 color box. Love it. Emily's quilt will be a delight with all the pretty fabrics.

  11. That's a terrific finish and a lovely bright quilt. Naps sound good to me but sinus problems aren't much fun. Nice pinks and triangles.
