W.I.P. Baby and a finish

I finally got this quilt top all nice and pieced and just have to baste now which I keep putting off because that would mean cleaning my kitchen floor:)
It has a bunch of my current favorite fabrics in there and I love quilts with black.
And then I finally attacked my Warm/Cool quilt with binding. I just have to hand sew it down and that'll be ready to go. *shhh* but it has gotten a fair amount of use around here even unfinished.;)

It was a difficult decision to go with a cool binding instead of warm. But the flannel backing is in the pink family so it needed to be cooled down.
With sick kiddos this week I have hardly been able to look at my machine but I did manage to sneak some sessions in to make the hubster a birthday pillow. "You've never made me anything." he said awhile back. Hmmm I guess if you don't count the lap quilts and pillows we curl up with when we watch movies or the huge quilt on our bed. Anyways any excuse to get quilting!
WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. Your pillow is absolutely awesome!

    1. Thanks!! It looks cute on the couch.:)

  2. Beautiful quilt! I wish I had the patience to do all of that...I've been working on the same quilt off and on since 2003. I can't believe I'm admitting that. Anyway, great job!

  8. What is the name of the pattern for your HSQ quilt?

  9. Love the yellow, black and white quilt...kudos on getting it all pieced! Well worth the effort, I'd say.
