Yup……all completed! Right down to the labels, washing and drying. Yay! Each one started out measuring (approximately) 36”x 42” and now measure 2” less both dimensions. No..I do not prewash! BUT, there was no color bleed (the “Shout” sheets were the same as when they were put in the washer!!!!!)!
First: “Rhyme Time”…………….. And the backing…………
Now,to switch gears……………. And a peek at this one’s backing…… Note: Click photo to enlarge.
The FMQ was done on Ms Sweetie (HQ Sweet 16). The first was a few feather plumes and swirls; the second I did another fave: circuit board. Fun!
Thread: (top) Glide poly,40 wt; (bobbin) Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly,70 wt.
Batting: Hobbs Heirloom cotton/poly (80/20)
Now….on to some alterations and a grandson (tech school) graduation…..
Very cute. Nicely done.
Love these and what fun they will be for the recipients. Congrats to the grandson!
Thanks!!!!!! It will be interesting to see if I’ve given the “right” quilt to the “right” twin!!! LOL!!!!!!
Both quilts are adorable!
Tons of fun to do!!!! Thank you. Uber hugs comin’ at ya…………..
What fun quilts. I know they were a blast to make
You judge correctly! It’s not often that 2 such projects are started and completed within a couple days!!!! Luv!!!! Hugs………..
Thanks for sharing all your dimensions, materials used & tips. I dont prewash either.
I imagine you do it for the same reason I do…….max texture for that awesome “quilty” look. I so love these finishes. Most of my quilts finish 2″-4″ smaller because of the shrinkage. I try to allow for that in my planning! Thanks so much for stopping by!!!! Hug………………
Awesome!!! You’re always at your best, Mtetar
And you are always so kind………..hugs…
Congrats on the grandson graduating from tech school!
Both of those quilts are super cute and will be well-loved by some little one and their parents.
A good time of visiting this afternoon. The graduation was several hundred (almost 700!) plus faculty/relatives. I guess it was kinda “zoo-y”…..way too many and quite impersonal (I was told).
They are really cute. I’m sure they will be well received.
I’m sure they will!!!
