Another 2015 Finish

I finished Little Man's three-year-old big boy quilt for his up-coming birthday in September. Ta-dah!


I used the squared spiral pantograph on this quilt. After many difficulties last week, I ordered Glide thread from Fil-tec that arrived during the week. When I worked out the tension, it worked beautifully. On the whole quilt, the only stops I had were when the bobbins ran out. What a thrill. The backing was 60" wide., but it still needed more width. I added blocks of fabric from the front and also more of the NY Mets fabric.

This one is now ready to send out. What a relief. My work schedule has been quite heavy lately and I have been worried that I wouldn't get this done in time.

The next priority is to finish the three advent calendars for my grandkids. I still need to get backing material.

While I had time this weekend, I caught up on the 2015 Designer Mystery BOM block. This is block #2.
Cute, no?

Here are the first two together.

While I was at it, I had time to get started on another project that has been ready to get going for quite a while. It is a kit, but I have changed the background fabric from the white that came with it to Kona Ash.



I have much more to go, but I feel really good about what I accomplished this weekend.

Thanks for stopping by.
