Bliss Quilt Complete

Mission Accomplished.  I work well on a deadline.  Thanks, Amy, for hosting the "One Thing, One Week Challenge."  My goal was to finish the quilting on this quilt  (so I could retrieve my basting pins).


Here's the quilting . . . in all its puckered glory.  My straight line quilting needs a lot of practice . . . or a walking foot.


As a bonus, I even got it bound.  Now I just need to figure out who I'm going to give it to ;)


Quilt stats:
Fabric: Bliss charm pack by Bonnie & Camille for Moda, Kona Rich Red, Kona White, bound in a Riley Blake stripe
Size: 44" x 52"
Pattern: Chain Linked by Amy Smart of Diary of a Quilter

Now that the pins are retrieved, I can finish Joe's quilt.  I'm tired of cringing every time I take a picture of my cute BOY on this very GIRL colored quilt.

"Uhh, mom, I don't do pink."

Your chain linked quilt looks great, and your baby boy is ADORABLE. Congrats on meeting your goal! I was able to buy a walking foot off of a friend, and it totally changed my life. Maybe you can score one for Valentine's Day?

Way to go! I think those solids you chose are a perfect compliment to your fabric!

Oh, that's adorable - and I love that you sew while Joe sleeps - My sewing time when my babies (a 2 yr old and triplets) were little, was midnight to 2 am. Amazing how much you can accomplish in little snatches of time!

I love it! This turned out beautifully. I love the Bliss Squares. :) And your baby is gorgeous as well. Cuteness all around.
