February is Full of Finishes!

Wow, February is turning out to be way better than Jan for the finishes department.  Shoot, I've got two more on the books.  Now that the twins quilts are done, I put Til Death Star Do We Part (Moon Glow) back on the frame.  I tell you that quilt was on and off the frame more than any other quilt I have ever quilted. But it's off for good.  I feathers the half moons on the border and think it just fits so much better.  This quilt is far from flat, but those little love birds won't have any idea!!

Soft and cozy back

I also finished up Moon Dust which is Moon Glows simpler less flashy sibling.  I do have to say Jinny Beyer does know how to put a color palette together.  This was completed with the left overs from Moon Glow. That is a really generous quilt kit.  The Moon Glow quilt is a great size on it's own, but Moon Dust is 74 x 87.  I cut up all the scraps left over into charm squares and 2.5 in stripes.  Used all the charm squares with about 20 left over.  Makes me feel like maybe I left a few things out of Moon Glow!  Moon Dust has Hobbs Poly Down batting, glide thread on top and pantograph is Fantasy Flame from Urban Elementz.

I've got presidents day off today and have the hubs running errands.  I'll be spending some time at the frame with a ruler and maybe a little piecing.  I really should try to get that swoon quilt done now that I'm such a roll here.  Hope everyone has a great week.  Check out the linky parties on the side bar.  I added a couple new ones last week.

  4. WOW, Sue -- I LOVE your finished Death Star quilt! What lucky lovebirds who get to snuggle under that one! When you mentioned the "snuggly backing" -- is that Minky or Cuddle fleece, flannel, or a regular quilting cotton?

  10. Your Moon Glow is stunning Sue! I made that one a few years ago and it is still my favorite finish. I have a bag of scraps from it too - I love how you used yours! I may have to be a copy-cat :*)

  14. I like your Moon Glow so much - the quilting is fabulous! Moon Dust is beautiful in its simplicity and I think it might be my favorite. It feels so good to get those WIP's finished up, right? I'm working on some of my own and made some real progress today - yay! Thanks for sharing these lovely finishes on MCM!

  15. I can only echo the other comments. They are both wonderful and for different reasons. For me Moon Dust is my favourite, I just love fabric and the simplicity shows it off so well. Wonderful.

  16. Lovely quilting and quilt. I like Moon Glow too. Wow a lot of fabric for that quilt. Usually folks run out of fabric not get a second good-sized quilt.

  19. Don't know how you managed it, but you've taken an intricately pieced quilt and over-layed it with an unexpected quilting pattern and piecing and quilting enhance each other and are both visible. Genius.
