My July Finish

4 Comments

Hey Guys!

This month has really flown by and I have found myself to be pretty busy!  Today’s post is about my Lovely Year of Finishes.  I hope you are already joined in on this goal setting …it really helps me to keep up!  Here is my finish for this month.

My Maple Leaf Rag Wall Hanging

This quilt is not an easy feat!  This is what I had at the beginning of the month.

The maple leaf rag is meant to be made out of scraps.  I tried my best to follow those rules!   The inside of the maple leaf rag is from a low volume bundle I had from West Wood Acres.  Everything else is a scrap, which is very rewarding for me.

I really had to make myself sit down and work on this but let me say…it is tedious but as I finished each block it was rewarding.  I enjoyed making the quilt.   I may …MAY…even make another.

I hope you can see the binding, which was from another quilt I made.  There was just enough to bind this tiny thing.

I decided not to use batting in this quilt but instead quilted it with some flannel I had left over from another quilt.  I quilted it with red thread echoing the spider webs.

Well that is all for now!  If you are looking for things in the mail from me….they are in the mail ;0)

Until Next Time, Sew Pretty!
