Friday Finish - Round Trip Quilts

I'm finished with my part of Heather's quilt for this round of Round Trip Quilts. Those purple flowers look much better now that they have some stitching!

When I shared a progress shot on Instagram, Heather commented that she doesn't have the patience for applique, which struck me as very funny considering what word is in this section of the quilt!

Here is what all the sections look like together. Heather is planning to make this into a twin size quilt, so there's still lots of work to go. I can't wait to see what everyone else adds.

Christine, of Wips and Tuts, has finished her beautiful addition to my quilt too. You can see it here. We are now halfway through this round robin project, and all the quilts are looking amazing. Click here to visit the page on Jennifer's blog with the links to see all the quilts.

 Have you seen Craftsy's free BOM class for 2015? I love Jinny Beyer's books Quiltmaking by Hand and The Quilter's Album of Patchwork Patterns. Jinny's quilts are gorgeous, so I'm really looking forward to all the tips she'll share over the course of this year. Are you signed up for the BOM?

And, in other Craftsy news, they're having a sale this weekend!

 I bought the fabrics for the Irish Chain wedding quilt last night and I'm hoping to start cutting out pieces this evening. The clock is ticking on this project!

Have a great weekend!


  1. wow, all that fussy piecing does take patience, but will end in a beautiful quilt. Thanks for the Craftsy info.

  2. Great job getting this all finished up. Your applique work looks very tidy! :)

  3. You letters are just wonderful...mine always have a tendency to be a little bit more wonky! Love the progress of this quilt so far!!!

  4. Beautiful addition! The flowers add such a nice touch :-)

  5. I have loved Jinny Beyers fabrics and patterns for years and even collected dozens of border prints in hopes of one day making a sampler. Now I can get started (maybe). I just bought her free class. Thanks for pointing it out.

  6. I'm loving my quilt so far! I'm so happy with this round robin :)


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message. I love hearing from you.
