Sew it's Finished Friday

Two more quilts quilted and bound -- Finally It's Finished Friday!

First up, "Framed Squares."  This was a "Brown Bag Surprise" at Ruth's Stitchery last year.  My favorite part of "Brown Bag Surprise" is that Ruth cuts the fabric, so all you have to do is sit down and sew.

This one is going to a friend in Idaho who is retiring after many years as a music teacher.  I quilted it with a meander stitch, using King Tut thread. (Had to get this photo quick while the tall quilt holder was home.  Like the bare feet?)

The last 12th Birthday quilt for this year is going to Washington.  It's called "Bounty of Blues."  I made it when Patchwork Times  was hosting "monochrome color of the month" last year.

  1. Fantastic finishes! I especially like the monochrome :)

  2. oh wow, I was reading your intro. That is a world of sewing and cutting to do 52 quilt tops in 52 weeks!
    I have a trouble getting in to my sewing machine as often as I would like, or even need to.

  3. Wow, two quilts! Beautiful finishes, Marti! Thanks for linking up to TGIFF!

  4. Marti,
    You are so amazing! I really like them both, especially the Bounty of Blues. I like the monochrome color scheme and the simple pattern that highlights the 'bluish-ness.' :) Thanks for linking up, and have fun at quilt guild tomorrow!

  5. Your goal (and accomplishment) is amazing. I like both quilts but surprising me, I REALLY like the monochromatic one. Thanks for sharing your talent with us all!
