Hello Betty, finally finished!

I have my first finish of 2014! And this is a very special finish. Something that I have learned about us quilter's is that we love to start projects and not always finish them. The blocks in this quilt was actually my very first blocks that I ever made with the very first fabric (Hello Betty by Moda) that I ever bought 3 maybe 4 years ago. I can't even remember. So when I found them I knew I just had to use them.

I added white to make the fabric pop. I had enough scraps to make a border for the top and bottom. It turned out to be 56 x 68 inches.

 I'm not sure how my skills where at the time so I just stitched in the ditch to reinforce the seams. I did decide to add a zigzag pattern on the white borders so it wouldn't look to plain. 

It's not perfect, but who cares! Overall I'm really happy with how it turned out.

 I just want to thank everyone for your comments and support.

Thank You!


  1. Congratulations on your first finish of the year, miles ahead of me! I've just found you on Lily's Quilts - you have a lovely looking website too!

  2. Lovely quilt! Yes, we do all tend to start things & then... life/other projects just get in the way I guess!! Linda

  3. I think it's come together beautifully. The white certainly does work to make the colours 'pop'. Great job.

  4. Oh, it's just beautiful! So fresh and pretty!
