Another Friday Finish

When I got home from retreat last week I discovered the perfect border in my stash for the baby blocks quilt -- Crayons!

 Here it is, flimsy finished and packed away with its back, ready for quilting.  It's small enough, I will probably quilt this one myself.  Pattern is "Playing with Blocks" by Marci Baker.

And I had a near-finish.  Again, the stash yielded the perfect sashing fabric for Elegant Garden.  I was able to get the inside finished.  It's now put aside until I can lay it out to square up and measure for the three borders.

Even though it's mostly floral fabric, my husband really likes this quilt -- maybe it's the black background on the florals.  And, surprisingly, he likes the yellow-orange cornerstones.  I was perusing my books one day, looking for patterns that would use some fabrics I'd had for a while.  I need to figure out which book this came from to give proper credit.

Today I'll be putting the final border on True Blue.  And mailing some orphan blocks to Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. 

Linking up with Sarah's "Whoop Whoop Friday."


  1. Two wonderful finishes Libby!!! Playing with Blocks is so fun - and that crayon fabric is just perfect for it :) Isn't it great to have a stash that actually meets your needs? I love it when I can go and pull what I need for a project and never have to buy fabric for it.

    1. Hey, Teresa! Missed your blogging lately. Hope everything is OK.

  2. Isn't it wonderful when you find the perfect fabrics in your stash? And you certainly did on those quilts. I especially like the baby blocks and the crayons border - made for each other!

    1. Yes, it makes me feel so smug ;-) The amazing thing is I had enough of the crayons since I tend to only buy 1 yd or less of novelty prints. I even have enough left to put into another fun kids quilt.
