Weekly Finish #28 Baby Crackers for Ariana


First finished quilt of 2015

I can’t believe the quilt pictured above is the first quilt I have finished since 2010.  It is one of the quilt tops I mentioned in my previous post and is the second one in the stack. 


I must confess that I did not actually make the quilt top, but bought it on eBay with the intention of finishing and donating it to charity.

The block pattern is a vintage design named Crackers.  And, if you are interested in making your own, just click on the picture for a free tutorial from Cut to Pieces.

I suppose it’s a good thing I never got around to finishing any of these tops – which are destined for charity – because then I would not have been able to create a last-minute special gift for my friend’s granddaughter, who was baptized last week. 


Luckily, I'd already started quilting the stack of tops, and I chose this one for Ariana.  I finished binding and labeling the quilt that Saturday morning.  As you can see, she was one happy little girl!

Remember, the best things in life are quilted!
