Red and Butter Quilt

I am so happy to finally put a check mark next to this Red and Butter Quilt. My friend started this quilt probably 8-10 years ago and couldn’t finish it. She gave it to me and it has been sitting in a box in my sewing room ever since!

But the day finally comes when enough is enough! Get some of these projects done already!!

I really thought this quilt was going to be outdated and that I wouldn’t like it. Well, I was wrong. I really do like it! In fact, I immediately hung it out in my front porch to greet everyone with a happy smile as they pass by:)❤️

….

I quilted the borders with a large feather stitch. Isn’t it so pretty?❤️

I love the little floral print on the back and the striped binding.

All in all this quilt is a success. It measures 67″x 69″

After I am finished with a long time UFO, I always wonder why I waited so long. This one is a definite wonder.

If you would like to make a Red and Butter Quilt yourself, the pattern is by Cabbage Rose Quilts. Mine came from an old book, but the pattern is sold individually now. There were a few mistakes in the pattern that I had to fix, but I bet the new patterns are all updated and perfect:)

This also marks my final finish for the Q4 FAL. I am so happy to have finished four of my five FAL hopefuls:). I am hoping that 2018 will empty out even more boxes in my sewing room!

I look forward to the finished projects, but I know myself too well. As soon as one project empties out of a box, another will move right in:)!

It’s just the way it goes in my work room. I bet it is the same in your work space as well.

Thank you so much for dropping by and reading about my sewing adventures. I hope the rest of your day is a SWEET one!
