{ The Final Quilt of 2015 }

I finished my sweet granddaughter's quilt two days before Christmas. With all the other activity going on-----baking , cooking, cleaning ---- I didn't get to make or attach her quilt label. I promised it will get done before the end of January. 

Quilt Details
Finished at 48x48
Fabric: Scrumptious by Bonnie & Camille
Pattern: Scrum-diddly-uptious Baby Quilt from Moda Bake Shop
Batting: Warm & White

I quilted it simply so it would remain nice and soft after washing. She was a hit with Mom.
This is my last quilt finish of 2015.
I'm hoping for a busy and productive 2016!
Happy New Year everyone.

{ A Finish, Just in Time }

The one and only handmade Christmas gift {unless you count pillow cases and linen spray} is complete  and on her way to live with my niece in Florida. I've been planning this quilt for her for some time but weddings and new babies kept bumping it down the to-do list.

I used the pattern Charmalade by Pamela Lincoln, a freebie from Moda Bake Shop. I thought the simplicity of this design and its "modern" look were perfect for a 20-something.

I quilted this one myself, just simple straight lines which follow the design. Sometimes, simple is best.
The fabric is {Flirt} by Sandy Gervais for Moda. I love the colors and prints. You can't miss with red & aqua.

The backing and binding are from Bonnie & Camille's{Vintage Modern } line.
Quilt finished at 56x68

P.S. HSTs ~ there are 130 of them in this quilt. That's a lot of trimming!
