A few finishes....

So I finished piecing a quilt from this Craftsy class, but I haven't even started quilting it yet.  I do have a few finishes to share though.

This is a Moda Bake Shop quilt, Eli's Wheels Quilt, that I thought would work well with Fig Tree's Tapestry Line, mixed with a darker fabric...

I love the pattern and the fabric line, but I find the darker fabric too distracting.  Either way, it's a finish and the colors do go well in my living room.

This next one, was one of those times when you just want instant gratification.  I had purchased a fat quarter bundle of

And had a bit of fun with Lori's Pattern....

The next two finishes are the cover quilt from this book:

I used a fat eighth bundle of
instead of a layer cake and I added a border with the off-cuts.  Two lap quilts and I really enjoyed making these.  The pattern was simple and I love the chosen fabric. 

This is a paper pieced pattern from Red Pepper Quilts.  I had such trouble with the paper piecing.  So I went to YouTube and found this tutorial by The Crafty Gemini.  Very helpful! As you can see, the tutorial helped me figure it out!

Maybe I'll try building a larger quilt with this as the center...For now, I'm satisfied with just a pillow.

And then....

These are table mats, playing with scraps.  The little stars above and the the little blocks are 4" finished.
What a fun way to use up scraps!

Thanks for visiting.
