February Finish

Last night I finished stitching down the binding on the 25 patch quilt and this morning I put it on the bed. Yay...I've accomplished something this month! So, here are pictures...the finished quilt, the stash busting back and the quilts on the bed. I discovered when I put it on the bed it's a little smaller than the log cabin. Oh well, it still fits! And it's FINISHED! On to the next project...

Hi Carolyn, the 25 patch looks absolutely wonderful!! Great job on getting down so fast..*VBS* Personally, I love your pieced backing and I think it takes personal courage to make backing this way. Kind of "what will people think"..you know? But for me this backing is interesting..makes me wonder..why did she do this? Like there must be a secret clue to what the maker was thinking about...it's really great!! And the two quilts look great together...Hugs, Finn

Your 25 patch quilt looks so great next to the log cabin. Same "feel", different look. Great work!

Congrats on finishing another one and using the stash for the backing. It does look great with the log cabin.

They both look great together! I like the strips down the sides of the 25 patch - something a little different which is always nice :-)

Both quilts look so nice together in that room. Nice job and I like what you did with the backing.

great finished quilt Carolyn! Good for you-and I am a big believer in those scrappy backs-use up the leftover front pieces or stuff from stash that go with!

Oh, these 2 quilts look like brother and sister - look similar, but each is different! I really like them together. I really like how the square patches one came out - what a change from the design wall photo with white in the background! Great job.

Cheers!

Very nice! Using up the scraps and stash busting yardage for the backing, to boot. Well done

Way to go busting that stash. I like both quilts and the pieced back.

Oh!!! Those two quilts look so awesome together!!! I couldn't imagine that two beds/two quilts, side by side, could look any better!!! Great job!!!

And the back...wan't that fun! It looks great! Lot's of personality!

What a nice feeling to get something done for yourself, right Carolyn?!
