This year I committed to making 3 quilts for the H2H 2015 Challenge. I am happy to say that last night at 10:45 I completed the third quilt.
Of the 3, this one is my favorite. So bright and cheery.
I wasn't sure I'd be finished with these in time since over the past 2 weeks I've flown back and forth to NJ twice. 2 weeks ago we went back for a memorial service for MJ's side of the family and while there signed off on the house we were selling.
We got home for the holiday weekend and I quilted these last 2 quilts, only the bindings to go and a full week till the linky party. Best laid plans.
Monday night I got a call that my dad's youngest sister had passed away. Wednesday I was back on a plane to NJ. It was a bitter sweet trip. With all of the sadness of her death and the beautiful funeral service ( she worked for NYPD for many years so there was an honor guard and bag pipes) came the up side of seeing cousins that sadly to say we are seeing more and more at funerals than family reunions. I have 30 first cousins on this side of the family spread out over 7 states. 17 of us made it to the funeral.
Came back Friday and started on the bindings. This picture is of the backing for quilt one. Too much sun, the fabric is more pale yellows and pale bright pink than this photo shows.
This was the second of the quilts bound this weekend.
Here is a close up of the bird houses that comprise the centers. It is from the same line of fabrics as the first quilt I finished for the challenge.
I missed taking a photo of the back which was a Target sheet patterned with pale gray and white tiny chevrons
This is the first quilt I finished for this years challenge it is made up of various birds in the center.
I backed it with polka dots.
I hope to get them in the mail this week.
Thanks need to go out to Sarah for coordinating and guiding us through yet another great Challenge year. Thanks also to all of the other participants of this years challenge.
