Two Minkee’s, Green and Blue

I am in the process of reviewing my 2014 goals and discovered that I finished this quilt and never posted about it.

3-DSCN7335I had several packages of Minkee charms and decided the best way to piece them was to alternate a cotton (in this case flannel) square to help control the stretch in the Minkee fabric. More on my process is found in the first one that I made here.

I did free motion butterflies in the Minkee squares. Some of them are pretty wonky. It is hard to see where you have been while sewing. 2-DSCN7339 Quilted flowers in the flannel squares. 1-DSCN5770This one finishes at 32 x 42. A perfect play mat for a baby.

Here are pictures of one that I made with mostly blues, and greens for a boy. I have already given it as a gift so no pictures of the finished quilt.

On the long arm, I practiced using a circular ruler. 1-DSCN6816Here is a picture of the back. 2-DSCN6845If I remember correctly it measured 36 x 42. Forgetting to take pictures seems to have become a habit. 🙂

Any hidden finishes in your closet?

Forgetful on the Journey, Jackie
