waverunner

I made the top for this quilt last year!!
When I made it...it didn't have a home.
Now it does!

I have a few quilt tops ready!
They are so much easier to store that way.
When special occassions come...
weddings, graduations, babies...
I'm sometimes almost ready!
My nephew is graduating next month,
so I told my sister-in-law to choose a quilt top
For her son...and this is it!!
I quilted it with simple wavy lines.
NO thinking.
NO marking.
My way to go!


Isn't this binding perfect??
I found it after digging through my
blues and greens.
So happy I have that fabric stash.
It DOES come in handy!

  2. I love that wavy line quilting! Looks just perfect on this quilt. And I've started buying pieces for my stash specifically because I think they will make good binding someday.... because I almost never pick the binding before I finish a quilt. Stashes do come in handy!!

  4. That's a stunning quilt. I'm sure your nephew with enjoy and appreciate it.

    I have a pile of finished tops too. I like your frame of mind regarding them. From now on, I won't consider them unfinished quilts, but instead they're tops ready to be finished for special occasions.
