A Friday Finish

Not a quilting project, but instead burp cloths for a brand new baby girl.  It’s the quickest thing I could whip up, considering mom & dad didn’t find out the gender beforehand.


I don’t think they look too bad considering they’re the first ones I’ve ever made.  The green/pink monkeys with the pink stripe….my original plan was to do a 9-patch, then decided I couldn’t be bothered because I just wanted to finish it quickly, so I left it in strips.  I agree that it would have looked better if I had just left it one wide monkey strip, but I had already gone down the path of cutting and sewing – I didn’t want to press and cut more fabric!  (Yes, tonight I’m a bit lazy!)

Tomorrow is long-arm day!  Here are my three (yes….3!) projects I’m taking, all pressed and hung up and ready to go…


In order they are:  Noteworthy wall hanging (40×40), Glamping backing (red gingham), Glamping top (folded inside out), and in the back you can barely see black& white & purple – that’s my one and only Swoon block, done in Halloween fabric – it will go on the kitchen table when it’s done.  My first priority is the Glamping quilt and the other 2 will happen if I have time.   I can’t wait!

Since it’s Friday and I finished up my project, I’m linking up to Amanda Jean’s Finish It Up Friday (Crazy Mom Quilts).


About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter
