Sew It's Finished.....

I made this little flimsy up last year.... I used a charm pack of Little Apples .... and made blocks using the disappearing 9 patch technique....

... there is a tiny bit of yellow in some of the blocks so I picked that out for the sashing ......


 ... found this pretty minky bobbly fabric at The Quilters Angel for the backing....

I didn't add any wadding but I did use some fine iron on vilene on the minky which helped a lot to stop the minky stretching when I cross hatch quilted to hold it all together


It is a lovely soft and cuddly quilt.... 


Another UFO out the cupboard and a completed project ..... yippee

Righto, gotto Go.... I think there are a few more UFO's skulking in the back shelves....

Dawn and Wendy who co-host the Sew It's Finished Blog have been giving us lovely little stitcheries to make into blocks as incentives to finish our UFO's....
.... these are mine so far ....



maybe I'll do the May stitchery for the next FNSI which is hosted by Heidi this month



Go HERE to link up and sew with us all - I always seem to get lots done... maybe that's because I take part in both the southern hemisphere and northern hemisphere fridays???!!!

  1. I love little Apples & the yellow sashing is very happy. It must be very snuggly with the minky, good idea with the vilene. I have looked at a minky backing but thought - too hard! Those stitchery blocks are gorgeous especially in that pretty fabric range - yum, yum, yum! Tracee xx

  5. So do those stitchery blocks count as a UFO?

    Lovely little finish and the Minky goes perfectly.

    Enjoy deciding on the next UFO to finish.
