That time I popped out 2 quilts

I FIIINALLY finished an asshole quilt. It was a pain from the get go. Nothing went right, at all. Well I finally showed that beast what's up!

I think it looks marvelous now! You can't really see it but I used one of DS fabrics from Joann's for the binding. 

The back is a vintage sheet I thrifted ages ago. Its so very soft. Extra snuggly :) 

 Then, in record time, I started AND finished a quilt in less than a week. Gasp and amazement! In all fairness, it was a baby quilt. 

It's Oh Franson's Mixtape quilt pattern. This is definitely one of my favorite patterns ever! I used Backyard Baby from Michael Miller. I bought 1/2 yard of each print and needed a fat eighth. Looks like Little Man is going to get one of these too. It's sashed in Kona Ash and the binding is Kona Orange, maybe Tangerine? The back is a light brown thrifted sheet. This one goes out tomorrow. Hope momma (and soon baby boy) like it :)

I'll be linking up with a few of you lovely linky ladies this week. Go check them all out. There is some seriously good stuff out there.


  1. I adore that second one! The colors & the pattern are perfect. You are going to make mama and baby happy!

  2. Wow that is very impressive! Love that DS binding!

    (hate proving I'm not a robot!!)

  3. ah, yes, thrifted sheets make the best backings! from the look of it finished it's hard for me to imagine that darling ruby(?) quilt being much of an asshole, but i'll take your word for it since only mamas know just how rotten their kids are behind closed doors. or so im told... i have no children, thank God. :P
