Ok, here are the 2 quilts I finished off theis week...actually, tomorrow, I have binding to finish on the one on the left. The one below is a cute made up one- had the cowboy fabric from a shirt I made for my nephew, plus bargain bin ric rac and vintage chenille. Found the lovely backing in an op shop, I think, have had it a while. I am happy with the result, especially the binding! :)
The one top left (added after and not in too bad a position) is an actual pattern, found here http://www.purlbee.com/zig-zag-quilt/ However, I forgot to add binding to the top and bottom, and made the squares 5 inch, as 4 and 7/8 was too fiddly for me on that day! So can't tell you the finished size, maybe a cot quilt size? This was is for a friend finishing up work this week to go on mat leave. When I started it is was just for fun, with no one in mind. It's good how that works out. The cowboy one will go to a stach of finished projects with no homes.My mum sent me the chenille, it is new, from Spotlight. She has just started sewing with it, and didn't like it much, so I got the leftovers. Thought the zig-zag effect was nice, plus it's super soft.
Will post a few more finished ones during the week. I have about 10 cut out out the moment, all in varying stages of completion, waiting for the day I have a market or something.
