Finish It Up Friday

A few weeks ago I mentioned a super secret project that I was working on. It has  now been gifted so I can share it here. 


Daughter #1 made these blocks before her wedding. The guests signed the blocks instead of a guest book. She hasn’t had time to put them together and with Baby #2 coming along in December, I knew it wasn’t going to happen any time soon. So I decided to finish the quilt for her birthday.  



She was so pleased! Here is a look at the back: 

I used a vintage sheet that my sister found in the wedding colors.

I used Glide  thread, Hobbs 80/29 batting, and a panto called Featherize from Urban Elementz.

    Wow, that just looks amazing. What a wonderful quilt, memory and beautiful birthday gift to complete for your daughter. Does the block have a name? Quilting is just great too.

  2. I love the layout of this beautiful quilt! What a great gift!

  3. Katy,
    What a thoughtful mom you are! I seems like such a short time ago I remember the anticipation of waiting for a baby, and knowing I had unfinished projects hanging out there. I still have one waiting to be finished almost 26 years later. Yikes! Wonderful gift, and beautiful backing choice.
