My Sewful Retirement

A Quilting Journey

Friday Finishes

Happy Friday!

I have three small finishes to share today just in time for February – the month of Love!

Curvy Log Cabin Heart Wall Hanging — measures 23 x 30 inches – made with batik fabrics from my stash.

Curvy Log Cabin Heart WH Finished

Batik Heart Table Runner – measures 14 x 40 inches – made with batik fabrics from my stash

Batik Hearts TR finished

Swirly Heart Quilt – measures 50 x 60 inches – made with prints from Mama Said Sew I and II by Sweetwater for Moda.

Swirly Heart Finished

I pulled out an old UFO, a string quilt I started many years ago and as you can tell I hadn’t learned the secret for getting the center strips to match!

String Quilt WIP

The fabrics were given to me from my mother-in-law before she passed. I was looking at a picture of her last night and decided it was time to finish the quilt.

Happy Stitching!

  1. Hi Karla! I didn’t know there was a secret to getting the center strip to match. I’m glad you are going to finish up that UFO. I think it has some striking colors and fabrics in it, plus it’s a nice remembrance of you MIL. Let to month of Love begin! ~smile~ Roseanne
