Boxed In Quilt Top

I simply love this stack of fabric!  It followed me home from Norway.  

On the tour, we visited Kathrines Quilte Stue, in Oslo.  They were very gracious and even served us tea.  I put this stack together while walking around the shop.

This pattern is a freebie, it can be found on the Benartex.com Free Pattern Page, it's called Boxed In.  I thought it was a perfect way to showcase these fabrics.

Quilt top started on 7/5/2018
Completed on 7/16/2018
Measures 68.5" x 58"

Now, I'm ready to  stitch up the quilt back.

May your bobbins always be full,

A Quick Finish!

I started this pillow cover during my trip to Norway.  Tildas World generously provided all the fabric for this folded star project.  Tula, the designer was very sweet.  The pillow cover is 18" square.

For the blue strip on the pillow back, I used the burrito pillowcase method; I feel very clever!

I'm glad to be able to check this off my list.  Now, I think I'm ready to start a new project!

May your bobbins always be full,

The Giving Quilts are complete

I'm so happy that I can check these as finished.  I'm biased, but I think they turned out really well.  These are my 4th and 5th finishes for 2018!

 Each quilt is different.  I made the quilt tops in February as samplers for my guild.  We'd been "building 12.5" blocks for a year and I presented these as a prototype for assembly of the blocks into charity quilts.  If you want to make something similar, the tutorial is here.
