Finish It Up Friday ~ Housewarming Quilt

The housewarming quilt is done and gifted. Some quilts just come together so quickly and easily, and then there is this one. 🙄

I used my modern wave pattern boards to quilt this.

Even that I struggled with. Nothing went smoothly. But that’s just how life is sometimes.

You might remember that the person this is for said she liked teal, purple, and blue. I managed to get all three of those colors in the binding. The color in this next photo is off, but I had to share that mothered corner. It was my one victory here.

in the end, it got done. And I learned a few lessons along the way.

Have a great day!
