Finishes: Quilts, Pillows, and a Hat

Phew! I got everything done just in time! I have a craft fair tomorrow where I needed two more quilts and the hat for a sample. Both baby quilts and the pillows are on my Q4 FAL list. I am so glad to get these things off my list and out of my craft room! I'm linking up with Finish it up Friday! I'm also linking up with Fabric Tuesday.

I made these two quilts with the Celebration line for Moda. They are half girl prints and half boy prints. I just bought two charm packs and put the girl prints into one quilt and the boy prints into the other. I bound and backed them in matching yellow. They were on my Q4 FAL list and these are both up for sale and if they don't sell this weekend I'll list them in my shop.

Here's a closeup of the boy quilt. I quilted on either side of each seam. I love the bright primary colors of this!

Here's the girl version. I love these prints! The aqua is a fun add in and those little flowers are so fun.

Here's what the back and binding of both quilt is made of. It's a fun yellow with a linen texture.

These two blocks have languished in my craft room for quite some time. They were part of the Mario Brothers Quilt along which I tried and did so bad at I just stopped after these two. They have one inch blocks and it was just way too hard to get everything lined up. I didn't have a great ruler either and it kept slipping as I was trying to cut. UGG! Don't look to close. My boys, however, just adore them and really don't care if the seams don't line up and they aren't square. So, I made them into throw pillows for their beds. Everyone wins!

I also finished up my spiral hat. The texture is really hard to capture in any lighting so I did the best I could. I wore it last night trick-or-treating with the kids and it worked a little too well. I had to take it off after only three houses. It should be great when the real Iowa Winter strikes.
I have no idea what I'm going to work on next other than I got another order for a Fluffy Sheep hat. Here's to surprises for next week!
