Two finishes

I finished up two quilts this past week.  The first is this flannel WIP from a few years back.  After a run through the washer and dryer, it looks almost as good as new.


I think it might be my favorite quilt I’ve made, even though while I was making it I wasn’t sure how I felt about the funky fabrics and bright solids.


The purple backing and striped binding really make me love it even more.


The final quilt measures 63 x 78 inches.  It is made from Joann’s flannel and doesn’t have any batting.  It’s a good weight without being too heavy.  In this photo of the binding you can see how I machine attached it with a zig-zag stitch.  I highly recommend this method.

I’ve got another finish from last weekend.  Here is a sneak peak and I’ll be posting about it later this week.


Linking up to Fabric Tuesday and Quilting by the River.


  1. I think it so much fun to take out the WIPS and get them finished!! Gratification at its finest;) I am leaning toward starting more projects at a time to be able to call them WIPS too. I am weird that way I GUESS!

    I adore your sneakie peek quilt with plus signs!

  2. look at you, Jamie! You totally rock! I love how pretty and bright the flannel quilt is, and a perfect size, too. and that straight line quilting for your Greek Cross looks perfect.

  3. Great fabrics, will be nice and cozy in the winter momths.

  4. What a beautiful quilt and I can imagine just how soft and cuddly it must be! Thanks for sharing.
