Kind-of-a-quilt-finish

Jessica of Twin Fibers was having a de-stash sale in her Etsy shop, and when I saw that she had an entire pieced quilt and backing on sale, I had to get it.

I basted, quilted in a loopy pattern, and bound it with Kona Asparagus.  My mom will be traveling to her homeland soon to visit family outside the US, and I just happened to have a cousin that is having a baby girl.  Looks like my mom will be filling her luggage with a nice lap sized quilt for a little newborn.  🙂

Here is a picture of it, with my oldest two kids trying to fight the wind.

Did you see that house in the background?  That is a life-size replica of the “Up” house.  It was a part of the Parade of Homes here in Utah last year.  It was recreated to be as close to the cartoon as possible, furnishings and all.  And people actually bought it and live in it.

Here are my kids, again fighting with the wind to show the quilt back.

This was the best picture we took.  The quilt back is made of a strip of pieced blocks like the front, and a large panel of a vintage sheet with a cute quilt design on it.  I love how it makes the back look like it was 100% pieced as well.

I’m not going to count this one as a finish, since I didn’t piece it, but I’m just glad I had such a lucky find.  Hope my second cousin likes it.  🙂

    Wow, I love it! I’m so glad you finished it up and it’s off to be loved by someone else! 🙂 That UP! house is awesome. I just watched the movie with my little one a while ago. What fun!

    It is very cute! I’d like to use the inspiration for a charity quilt for 100 quilts for kids. Thanks for sharing. Janita
