Apples finish

IMG_0208

I got a burst of energy the other night (doesn’t happen very often) and finished up this sweet quilt.   My favorite part of this quilt is this little family playing ring-around-the-rosies.

This one is going to live with cousins….but we snuck in a little quilt time before we packaged it up.   Someone has to make sure it works… right?

Luckily it works just fine and the texture of this one is really great.  I haven’t washed a new quilt for awhile and I forgot all about the anticipation of pulling a fresh quilt out of the dryer and seeing that crinkly goodness!

The crinkle "reveal" is my favorite part!! Beautiful quilt!

notes of sincerity said...

I love your finish!! :o)
Received the pattern I purchased (Dottie) and I just have to say, that is the nicest pattern I have every bought! :o) Also, I thought it was funny, that you made the "shortcake" using Strawberry Fields, I used "Ruby". Then you used "Ruby" for "Dottie" and I am using "Strawberry Fields". :o)
Have a great day.
hugs. Trish

Crinkly goodness is the best! My favorite part of a quilt.... And this is a lovely quilt -the fabric is great, especially that backing!!

I think it makes the quilt even more special that it's had a test run! Sweet photo. :-)

Pat said...

Lucky cousins, great quilt!

jmday said...

Love the fabric on the back! (Is it weird that I love quilt backs so much?) I also love the fresh quilt out of the dryer moment. Snuggly goodness!

Jenny said...

I adore this quilt. the colors. the fabric. the warm crinkly snuggle on the couch.

I have a quilt made from that fabric, too. My oldest daugther made it for me as a gift before leaving for college. I can't even being to explain just how cherished it is.

Aquilter said...

Way cute! I also really think the "ring-around-the-rosy" fabric is adorable. It must be hard to give away such a cute quilt!

euphoria said...

Well done!

Emma Thomsen said...

OOh, I have quilt envy!

All those delicious colours together...love it!

Gail's Card Cafe' said...

Beautiful! I love those colors together too!

Lesley said...

So cute...and I agree about pulling the quilt from the dryer...it makes it so much more cuddly! And if it's for a child, the quilt will have to become friendly with a washer and dryer!

Sherry said...

Love it! I haven't had that fun of pulling a fresh quilted one from the dryer in awhile either. Remodel of downstairs just recently completed, I'm ready to get in my new sewing room & get some of those tops quilted. I'm sure the cousins are going to love the quilt.

Debbie said...

Is this the disappearing nine patch? I made this with halloween fabric but this fabric would certainly look alot better. It's super wonderful and the cousins will love it!

Kristen and Ryan said...

I love the backing fabric!

Habibti at Home said...

Awwww! I LOVE testing quilts before I wrap them up to give away! I rarely quilt for myself so the couple of days under that "fresh from the dryer" quilt is all I have with them. Congrats on yet mother beautiful quilt!

This sweet fabric will have a special place in my heart always. My oldest daughter made me a beautiful quilt from it and gave it to me a few weeks before she left for college as a thank you. It is beyond precious to me, as is she!

Jennifer M. said...

Beautiful quilt! I love the colors you used in it. :)

Becca Faye said...

I think I'm going to cry! When I read this post a few days ago, I didn't imagine my kids would be the very lucky cousins. Thank you times one million!! What a happy surprise.
