Friday Finish & Winner Announced

Hey Guys!

I have been really busy this week working on two quilts for two birthday boys!  These boys are the children of my friends Maya and Steven.  I have only finished binding one but i am in need of a nap and I will be back tomorrow to show the second quilt.  The quilt is designed from the St. Louis 16 Patch and if you don’t know what that is you should go read the tutorial trial on the St. Louis 16 Patch.  Here are the pictures:

Here is the quilt top.  The fabric is from Shore Thing which was purchased at the Fat Quarter Shop.  I quilted the quilt with straight line quilting in a double line grid pattern.  The pictures do not do the quilting justice..;0(  I did all the quilting with silver aurifil thread (My favorite for quilting) and binded the quilt with a Bella solid.  I picked this sandy brown fabric because it made me think of the beach.


The back of the quilt has raw edge appliqué.   I used scraps from the block to create the base of the quilt back.  I also used scraps that I sewed together to cut out the letters and ship …making patchwork letters.  I think it’s super cool!IMG_0616

Here is a picture of both quilts folded waiting for binding.
