November Finishes

My Swoon quilt was intended to be a full size quilt for my bed, but wingin' it with the color choices didn't work out.  Instead, I made 2 more blocks to at least make it into a quilt and I stopped there.  I really have some color picking issues and have decided that I will try to stick to collections where the fabrics are all coordinated.  I finished the backing and binding with leftover fabric from other stuff.  I'm not crazy about this quilt but the one thing I do like is the quilting I did.  I like the radiating v's in all 4 directions.

Next up, is my Honey Child quilt, made with Sis Boom fabric by Jennifer Paganelli.  I used Elizabeth's New Wave Pattern found here.  I really wanted to show off the fabrics instead of cutting them up into little pieces so this pattern was perfect for that.  I love how modern it is.  I got plexiglass from Lowes and made my own template.  Inexpensive and easy!  The cheerio backing fabric is from Joanne's.  The quilting is really simple.  This is a Christmas gift for one of our nieces.

I loved the fabric so much, I made myself a Dresden pillow.
