Finally Completed

I really wanted to put a quilt into the Bloggers Quilt Festival.
The first Quilt Festival started just shortly after
I had finished my very first quilts. 
I have participated each time they have had the festival. 
I love the festival, soo much inspiration all in one place.  
This time around, I just didnt have a quilt that
I had finished recently that "I really looooved".
This was the motivation that I needed....
The Story of this quilt:
This quilt started out with two jelly rolls;
The pattern is the American Jane pattern; Wee Spin.
This quilt top took a lot of time, energy, and patience with points.
Here is the top which was completed last summer.
(I love the stained glass look with the sun shining through)
And then the quilt top sat, and sat, and sat.
Until now... This last week I finished this quilt just for the Quilt Festival.
Here is the quilt all quilted.
There were tons of seams, which made the quilting a little tricky.
I quilted it in a small stipple pattern.
Small enough for lots of crinkle goodness.
Here is the quilt bound, and washed;
I had a real hard time finding the 'right' binding.
I was leaning towards red, but ended up with orange, and wishing it was red.
Hopefully the orange will grow on me.  
The backing is also an American Jane fabric.
Look closely, and you can see the hexagons peeking through.
and the perfect picture for some crinkly goodness.
I am soo glad this quilt is completed so I can enjoy it!
Finished size is 56X78
hexagons are 8"X7"
inside hexagons are 4"X3.75"


  1. Your quilt is very pretty. The stained glass effect photograph is quite striking. Hope the orange binding grows on you because it looks lovely.

  2. This is gorgeous! I am so impressed.

    You did a great job on the quilting.
