A Small Finish

I finished my SQT challenge quilt yesterday. I didn’t realize until I was taking pictures that I messed up the block layout! Oh well, it is growing on me and overall, I am pleased with how this turned out.

I used all vintage fabrics, including some I picked up at the antique fest recently. It measures 9.5″ x 12.5″. I used Mountain Mist Blue Ribbon batting. I really love it for small quilts like this. It is quilted in a hanging diamonds pattern. It is the first time I have done this but definitely not the last!

I used part of a vintage feed sack for the back and turned the backing to the front for the binding.

This was such a fun little quilt, not sure why I waited until the end of the month to make it!

Linking up with Connie at Free Motion by the River for Linky Tuesday.
