Quilt #5

Wanted to do a quilt for my Aunt's 90th Birthday this summer.  So I found this quilt Kona Cotton Cozy Throw kit and ordered.  It came so quick from Craftsy, it was my first purchase from them.

Once I got the kit, I did my cutting, which went very quick.  Then I headed into the piecing the strips and cutting them into the blocks.  It was so easy, fun and quick.

Once I put them blocks together, then it was time to put the sashing on.

I took me a few days to put together the top, then it was quite a bit of time before I got in gear to find some backing.  Went over the weekend and bought backing at a small local shop Pressing Matters.

I got a Moda Flow Apple Egeria.  It is very cute, bright and soft.

Time to make a sandwich.

Got my sandwich done, now I need to give Alice a call to get this quilt on her schedule.

Wow I've really planned ahead.  Don't need this one until August, but I know that Alice has a big job  coming up so want to get on her schedule.

Quilt #4 Done

Got the call from Alice, AMS Quilting, that Quilt #4 is done.

Ok I ventured off the straight line quilting for this one.  We went with Circles and Lines (by Cyndi Herman).

Here is the finished product:

It looks so cute!  Now it is time to send off to Emory for her 1st Birthday.
