A little post about a little finish.

I love scrap bags!  I helped a friend lighten her scrappy load by taking a bag of her scraps with the promise to make something. 
I set to work to use them up by making a baby sized quilt using a free pattern by Jeliquilts on Craftsy.  A fun fabric for the backing and it ended up measuring 40" x 48".  A nice size.  I quilted in a straight stitch on both sides of the seam in both directions. Add a scrappy binding .  A nice bright, clean look! 




This is the first quilt photo taken on the new garden wall built by RetiredHub.

Hope you had time today to do some quilting!
