Oh Joy!

I realized I hadn’t posted the final pictures of the Joy quilt I finished this week, so here it is…

Because the fabric prints are so bold, it’s hard to see the stitch pattern on the front…

but much easier to see it on the minky backing.

This one is my mother-in-law’s Christmas gift. I think she’ll really like it!

Finished top is 66×78.

I’m linking up to Finish it up Friday over at crazy mom quilts.  Head on over to see what amandajean and the other crazy talented people have been up to this week!

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

    I don’t like working with minky either! I have one quilt I still need to finish, that minky is slow going though. This quilt is awesome, and the quilting is spot on!

    Greetings! I’m coming over from Lily’s Quilts Small Blog Meet. I know you feel great having finished such a lovely quilt. Your mother-in-law is sure to love it! I’ve done some bindings with striped fabric and the multi-color dimensional affect is striking. Did you quilt it yourself on your sewing machine? I love it.
