Two very different finishes...


Can you believe it...two finishes this week!  First, I took my last stitch on the binding on my "Scrappy Obsession" Quilt (yes folks, it finally has a name.)  The pattern for this was in the second Material Obsession book hence the name of the quilt!

I am really happy with how this one came out.  Very bright and cheery!  And I decided I love check bindings!  Today I just have to make up a sleeve and a label.  (I'll get better pictures when I have the sleeve on...my DH isn't tall enough to hold all this quilt up on his own!)

My other finish was a quick one.  I made this top back in the mid 90's (anyone else remember these Laura Ashley fabrics!) ...it has been in the "to be quilted pile for a long, long time.  So it has moved on to the "to be donated" pile...It will make a nice quilt for the Ronald McDonald house here in Augusta...

A pet update - Brownie is doing well and has stolen multiple tumbler blocks from the design wall and put them in her own fabric stash behind the sofa.  Macbeth isn't responding as well to the meds...still sleeping a lot and needs to have the mat under him changed every few hours.  I was hoping that would be under control today...keep you fingers crossed....

Lovely quilts! Your 'obsession' really sparkles!
And congratulations on finishing a 'long ago and far away' UFO. The fabrics are still pretty and cheerful. Ronald McDonald house will love it.

This one's fun - I love the combination of the blocks. And yes, checked binding is a fave of mine too.
