2010 done, give away for 2011




This will be my last quilt completed for 2010. Not bad since it was on my 2011 goals list! We won't mention that its been a stack of completed blocks sitting in a basket for almost a year.




It was intended as a baby quilt, but is more of a toddler size, or a good baby floor throw coming in at 51" square before being washed.




The back is some of my favorite Michael Miller dainty damask. I love this print and it is so sweet in the grapey purple with pink back ground.




It was supposed to be rainy and nasty all day today so I rushed out last evening to get pictures and see that the late afternoon sun was a little dim. You can see the colors better in this picture done before binding. I do think that this is the best quilting I have done to date. I don't remember making any pointys which is my downfall.





And remember these? I still have 4 left that have 2010 on them. I may use them on WIP that were started in 2010 as long as they are done in FQ11.


Its time to print up some new ones for 2011 and since I print them a page at a time I will print up 6 labels for a lucky winner! Just comment to this post and I will pick a random winner on Monday. Winner can then tell me what they want printed and if they have a favorite of the styles I have going on so far.

  2. Cute quilt, Diane! I like the bigger size - and I can't wait to make my own! PS isn't printing your own labels great? I just love that I can do different styles for different recipients!

  9. Nice to see a purple quilt because it doesn't seem to be a very common colour in quilting. I just love how you've done the back of this quilt too!

  13. Hi, I was doing some blog hopping and ended up here looking at this wonderful quilt. I have three high school graduation quilts to make and one of the girls loves purple. This just shouted out to me "make me" would you mind sharing where you got, made, found this beautiful quilt pattern? Thank you so much!
