A Finished Quilt

This quilt has been in my UFO's for about 5 years. I made the top, and then let it sit for awhile before I finally quilted it. I wanted to use the same fabric for the binding as I did for the inner border, but I didn't have enough, so it just kind of sat there for a couple of years. I finally took it to the fabric store and picked out a different green for the binding, and then let it sit again for another year before I finally put it on yesterday. I do like it, now it's finished. It's made with a mix of recycled vintage linens and some newer fabrics. I'm calling it Dreaming of Summer, because we had more snow again today, and it's so bright and sunny.



I also have a smaller finish. I finished another pillow for my mom, she liked the first one so much she asked for another.


I've been quilting a little here and there on my little applique quilt. I'm not rushing this, it's very relaxed. I usually quilt in the evening while watching tv. I really, really enjoy the process of hand quilting, this is the second largish quilt I've hand quilted. The first was an Amish inspired crib quilt I quilted many years ago. Hopefully I can work on this pretty consistently and hang it as part of my Christmas decorations this year!

I agree, it reminds me of citrus as well. It is so pretty. I have stack of vintage linens just waiting to be cut. This reminds me how pretty that project will be.

A charming quilt and a good reminder that summer will be here some time. I have let quilts "age" like that before, too.

So glad you hung in there as your Dreaming of Summer quilt is spectacular! I agree, hand quilting is so wonderful! Enjoy your slow stitches!

The yellow and green quilt does look citrus like. I think it's wonderful and how wonderful to finally have it completed. I have so many older projects that I'm taking time to get completed. It will be great to have them done.
