Crossed off the Unfinished Quilts List!



Well, the Fresh Cut Quilt top that has been sitting around since February has gone from being unfinished to quilted, bound, and delivered to my Etsy Store.

 Finished quilt measures:  42.5 inches x 42.5 inches

I have noticed too that I have snuck in a few fabrics that are not from the Fresh Cut range.  Included also are a few prints from Heather Bailey's Bijoux range, some Amy Butler Full Moon Polka Dots from the Lotus  and Martini from the Midwest Modern range, and a grey dot by Urban Chiks from the "1974" range.


The back of the quilt is pieced again just using fabrics from the Fresh Cut fabric range.  I love this look on the back of the quilt, allowing the fabrics to be the feature and making this quilt fully reversible.


I think I have mentioned before how much I love the fabric that I have used for the binding of this quilt.  It is Aunt Grace Polka Dots in Blue by Marcus Brothers.

And for those of you who wanted to see how I use the custom labels on my quilts: -

Just tucked inside the machine stitched binding at the back of the quilt.


Enjoy!  And please check out My Etsy Store for all the details or email me if you have any questions!

  1. Very fresh and cute. Doesn't it feel great to finish the older projects? I'm working on one right now that I started 8 years ago (omg, I just calculated how long it has been and I can't believe it). :)

  2. IT's lovely! And I like how you've switched your labels around so it starts with "Red pep" as opposed to "per Quilts"!
