It only took 211 posts since I started blogging, but I finally have my first big finish.
My Simply Stars quilt is finished, and gifted to a very dear friend, who is expecting a girl!!! I added light grey striped binding. Here are the blogs to describe the process:
- Quilting completed
- Back completed and quilting underway – link to the ultra wavy quilting tutorial by Janice @ Better of Threads
- Front completed – Information on size and fabric choices
- Piecing the blocks + rows and here
and of course the photo’s. As its my first big finish, I made sure I captured it I hope you don’t mind me sharing :-).

I am linking up with Janice @ Better off Thread for Sew Cute Tuesday, which I am super excited about since it was her ultra wavy quilting design I tried and Linking up with Amanda Jean @ Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday – even though its a few days away.
As this is the 1st of 2 quilts I put as my goals for July, I am checking in for mid-July with “A Lovely year of finishes”.
