Fabulous Friday Finish!!

 Oh man that was close!!  I needed to have this done by 5PM today.  I finished it last night at 7PM, pulled it out of the dryer at 9PM.  But it will be going to little Meghan for her birthday today.  She's turning 10, yep double digits deserves a quilt :) This is the first quilt that I did completely on April.   The pattern for this is "Apple Crate" from the moda bake shop, can be found  here.  I love the look after it's been washed.  I used Hobb's 80/20 for the first time on this quilt and really like it, I think I'll use it more often

Apple Crate before washing, looks so crisp and neat

And I finished the practice quilt - I think it's good and I'm going to give this a try on Orca bay.

  2. WOW! The apple crate quilt is adorable. Perfect for a 10 year old. Can't believe that the red quilt is just a practice quilt. Looks professional to me!
