WIP Wednesday/More FAL finishes

I am scheduled to take my first longarm class in a couple of weeks and I need to bring a small finished quilt top to work on. Wouldn’t you know that although I have more than 10 quilt tops waiting to be quilted, they are all large queen/king or small wall hangings that I want to do some special quilting on. Once again I looked to Pinterest for some inspiration for a quick baby quilt.  I found this upsized charm square idea on a blog called Thumbelina. I changed it to run the stripes vertically instead of horizontally.  I had 3 charm packs and a couple of co-ordinating fat quarters which will give me enough for 3 baby quilts.


I finished free motion quilting the last two charity quilts for High River.  That gives me finish number 4 and 5 for the 4th quarter FAL at She Can Quilt.

I also finished piecing my final Christmas gift (lap quilt) but I can’t show a picture because it is a surprise for the recipient.
