Finish It Up Friday

This week I have three finishes! It’s great to cross a few things of my list of projects.

First I finished this Dresden Plate wall Hanging for a Holiday Sale. It measures 24″ square.

I wanted to make a wall hanging like this after hand-quilting the Dresden plate on my Sampler Quilt and loving how the cross hatch pattern looked behind the Dresden plate.

Next I finished my Chevron Baby Quilt this week by sewing on the binding. It measures 31.5″ by 41.5″. It was made with some left over half-square triangles from this quilt, but then of course I had to make more to fill it out.

It’s hand-quilted on either side of each chevron.

My third finish is the Blue Collar Baby quilt. It’s made with re-purposed men’s cotton shirts. I finished quilting it and sewed on the scrappy binding. It measures 30″ by 41″ and the squares are based off this tutorial.

I hand-quilted on either size of the patches along the length of the quilt.

Here’s the back.

This quilt only took 10 days!

    I’m just in love with the chevrons and Dresdens. So many great greens and blues. Aren’t Dresdens fun to make? I was terrified of them for the longest time, but once I finally did it, I loved making them.
