Finish it Up Friday--Charlie's OmaLynda Quilt

Another finish in time to play with Amanda Jean and her inimitable "Finish It Up Fridays" where scads and loads and piles of the most delectable links on the InnerWebs are brought for our pleasure. An entire buffet of glorious handicrafts and the craftsmanship is fun to see. Stop by a few of the linkers and maybe you'll meet your next favorite blog !~!

The Picture Essay of "OmaLynda"

The fabric brought by Charlie's Oma from Holland last summer.
Building a quilt for her granddaughter came to me in the wee hours of the morning.

The flimsy glows in the sunshine.

The finished quilt showing how I bound it.
Top and bottom edges I turned the front over onto the back and blanket stitched it down by hand.
The long sides I machine-stitched with a multi-stitch zigzag in variegated purple thread.
Label-my husband named the quilt for the two of us who made it.
Oma and Lynda so the quilt's name is OmaLynda.

Linking up with "Make It and Love It". Check out her fabulous Linky Party.


  1. Not only lovely fabric and special too but you showed it off so pretty with the simple strips. It does glow! :o)

  2. That's a perfect name for the quilt. The simple pattern really shows off the wonderful fabric. Charlie will love it.
