June UFO Linky Party at Cat Patches

Hello July First.

The first of the month means it's time for Barbara Stanbro's FO Linky Party at one of her blogs: Cat Patches. The best part about Barb's monthly link-up: Nothing has to be finished; you see, it's all about starting a project. Finishing is optional. That's my kind of party because my mojo hasn't yet figured out how to read a calendar and often a project won't be completed within a calendar month. Others are finished in a couple days but that's not to be taken for granted.

So June's project is Karen's Pastel, which was started in early June, finished, mailed and arrived in South Florida where it is the "perfect everything-size, weight, colors and infused with love in every stitch" Karen professes with a catch in her voice. Brought me a few tears too; we're physically a continent apart and it's emotionally hard some days. Would have preferred to deliver this one in person.

It finished at about 65 by 75 inches or so.

Batting is cotton and bamboo-half and half. Quilting was done on my low-end Singer with lots of rolling and shifting, it finished up lightly quilted with a wacky binding.

Linking up to NNT at My Quilt Infatuation and Richard and Tanya Quilts Link a Finish Friday.


  1. The quilt turned out very pretty. I like the way the pink and white sort of snakes through the florals. It's a great way to give your sister a hug even when you can't be there. Your sister expressed it beautifully.

  2. What a pretty quilt! No wonder she loves it. :)

  3. How could our big sister not love it? It's beautiful and it's been hand made by you, the youngest what could be any better than that?????
    All stitched with love from one to another.
    You two are my most favorite sisters!

  4. Thank you all so much. I really had a time with it in the beginning and then I saw the D9P on a blog and realized that I could do that too !~! Very satisfied with the way it turned out.

    You all are kind and I appreciate each and every comment you leave.
