A Finish, at Last!!

The giveaway is still open....click over here for the giveaway post.

This week i was able to spend a little quality time with my recently tuned up sewing machine. We went straight to the WIP pile for something to work on. This "filmstrip" quilt was all pinned and ready to go. A little straight quilting and it was done!




I began this quilt with Deb from Works in Progress a long, very long, time ago. I was enthusiastic, but easily distracted...because it has taken me a really long time to finish. I am not sure why it took so long. I really love it now, but somewhere along the way it just stopped calling my name.




This one is definitely staying here at home with us. It fits right in with all my other American Jane quilts and fabrics that abound in my living room. It is also the perfect size for snuggling up under. These Snippet charm squares were fun and cheerful, and charm squares are always so easy to work with.

How about a little linking up fun?!

So glad I found you on SEW Much Ado.

That is so cute! I need to look at some of my projects that have stopped speaking to me. If they turn out half as well it will be well worth the finish!

That is awesome Leslie. It's weird how that happens, it happens to me all the time. You start something full of enthusiasm, then you loose the love for it, then when it's finished you love it again!!

Oh gosh this is cute! It has a summer breezy look to it! I love scrappy looking quilts and the new kid on the block must love it too!
