Finished : The Love & Grow quilt

Still holding strong on the stash busting challenge. I confess, I have been avoiding temptation as much as possible. No trips to crafts or quilt stores. But I also resisted temptation : no slip-ups at Home Depot or Lowes. 

Part of the challenge I put myself to was to finish as many pending projects as possible. This quilt was one of them. It was also a stashbuster project from the get go since I only bought an extra piece of brown fabric for the backing. All the rest directly from my stash. Problem though. After piecing the top and back, I got a bit of quilter's block. I first blogged about it here and then again here and here.

I had the hardest time deciding on a quilting pattern and just as much picking a thread color. Then as I was going through my stash for other projects, I  found a half bobbin of variegated thread left from another project that I had totally forgotten about. Well there it is, quilted, bound and washed, I just have to add a label and deliver to the intended recipient. 


  1. Very pretty colors. It is a lovely little quilt. Do you hand quilt or machine quilt? My guess is hand - but I could be wrong.

  2. That is a beautiful quilt, I'm sure it was a lot of hard work.

  4. What a pretty quilt great job! Thanks for linking up!

  5. I wish I was talented enough to hand quilt. It's all the hard work of my beloved sewing machine. I just push and pull ! I think the hardest part is to set the machine's tension block properly. If I could get away with it I would just whip up quilt tops and backings which are the part that I'm having most fun with.

    Now all I hope is that the intended recipient will like it as much as you do


  6. What a great quilt and what a lucky recipient!
