Here’s the last top finished this week – it’s also a UFO finish and completely from stash so I’m very pleased with this one! I love the texture the Bubbles pantograph gave it and think I made the right choice for quilting. I left this photo large so you can click on it to see a better view of the quilting.
Instructions can be found at my MaryQuilts.com site for anyone interested.
So my progress report is:
- 2 tops quilted – goal of 10 before the end of August met
- 4 quilts bound
- Wonky Tree blocks assembled into a small top
- My Stash used total goes up to 77.5 yards (includes completed quilts only)
- No fabric purchased this week
I also did my weigh in this morning since I’ll be leaving tomorrow for the airport at 3:30AM!! I have a loss of 1.4 lbs for a total of 7.4 lbs in 3 and 1/2 weeks. I’ll be traveling most of the next two weeks so I hope I can avoid gaining any back – we’ll see!
What a wonderful strip quilt Mary!>I love the effect 🙂
Oh, I love it!!!! You are right…the quilted Bubbles was absolutely the right choice. Its gorgeous!! (I recognize some of your fabrics, I have the same ones in my stash!) 🙂
Oh my gosh, I love that quilt! I hope you have a great trip.
The quilt is beautiful: I particularly like the top border. It makes the quilt a bit more unique: although, the backgrounds on the hearts make them pop, too. This is definitely one of my favorites. Nice job
I love the quilting, the hearts are just as petty, how do you do it~!!! > Congratulations.> Carmen
Love it! One of the best you’ve done. Making my fingers “itch” to get one stitched! Travel safe and let us hear from you as often as you can 😉>>Flatlander (Linda)

Oooooo, I love this one!! It is going on my list to make. I have a pile of 30’s strings that I pulled out the other day. Time to make a couple more charity quilts. Thanks for the idea and sharing it!!!
That is a very cool quilt, Mary! From the colors to the pattern to the quilting! Bravo to you!
The quilt is so pretty. I want to try it. Maybe when I get serious about finishing my other projects. Have a great trip!
lovely. so different from most of these types of quilts.
The border on the top is very interesting. Adds a lot to the quilt (which was already very nice!)
After a 2nd look – I spy that great top border – clever and unexpected!>Cheers!>Evelyn
This is WONDERFUL! I’ve been looking for our next project and here it is! Just magnificent.
