A Friday Finish

I can't believe it's been almost two months since I posted here.  Spring just flew by in a busy flash and we are now in the long warm days of summer.  We are all fine here; I just haven't gotten around to blogging in a long while.

I finished this small lap quilt recently quilted, bound, washed, and de-cat-haired (for all of five seconds).  The pattern is Charm Box Quilt, a free pattern by Fat Quarter Shop.  I used two charm packs of Persimmon by Basic Gray and a Moda Bella solid in Prussian Blue.

I quilted it myself using the ever-so-easy squiggly stitch using Aurifil thread.

The backing is from the same fabric line.

We are slowly adding Southwest art and colors to our house and this fabric line seemed perfect for a quilt to throw over the chair in our living room (which is actually a quilt for cats to sleep on, of course).

This quilt matches nicely with the Native American ledger art we bought last year at Indian Market.

I have several other projects in the works but was inspired to start a new project (left).  Perfect colors for summer :)

Great job on a finish! Looks great! I haven't been blogging much either...but I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel with this move, so hopefully I'll be back at it again soon!

Great quilt! I love the colors... it does have a Southwestern flair to it! I liked making Bounce... your layer cake will be so fun with it!

That is such a lovely quilt. The darker border really highlights the colours and print of the fabric. That's some pretty fabric for your summer quilt.
