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!
