done - Project Linus #12 and #13

I finished up those two Project Linus quilts, huzzah! I really loved the quilting from the back - it was SO quick and easy!

I'm so happy with the fabric I used for the binding - it matches the striped fabric perfectly. I still have a lot of it left (and a lot of the polka dots too!), and I know there's still some of that stripe fabric in the PL stash... I might have to whip up a few more of these at the next meeting!

Speaking of Project Linus, if you're in the Seattle area, the Pacific Fabric stores are hosting a blanket bee on Sunday, April 25 from noon to 5pm. I'm sad that I'll be out of town that weekend, but if you're at all interested, you should check it out. They'll be sewing simple patchwork tops, sandwiching tops and backs (with all batting donated by The Warm Company - nice!), doing pillowcase-style binding, and tying ties. No experience is required, and you don't have to bring anything. Just show up!


  1. That binding fabric is indeed perfect! Gorgeous quilts. I've never been to any of the Pacific Fabrics bees. They sound like a lot of fun-- but I should (hopefully!) have a newborn by then, so I doubt I'll make that one. :)

  2. i'm so impressed with your machine quilting! I can't stand doing larger quilts. You must be a good baster!

    They're wonderful!

  3. wish i lived in WA again...i would be there!! love the linus quilts.

  4. They turned out great, Evelyn! such nice charity quilts. Your choice of backing and bindings are too perfect!!

  5. Go girl GO!! You are a whizz with those quilts! LOVE the binding. The quilting a sure winner. You are the best.
