Finish It Up Friday ~ In for a Penny

Even with totally reconstructing this, it still finished quickly. It’s small, only about 40 by 50 inches.

I used Quilter’s Dream batting and it drapes beautifully.

I really enjoyed quilting this. I was almost sad to see it done so soon.

I think the variegated thread adds a fun touch, along with the purple dyed feedsack bits.

This backing is from bloggy friend, Ila. I used the rest of this on another quilt you can see here.

It was pretty cold and dreary the day I took these photos. I hope it warms up soon!

Have a great day!
