First 2022 Finished Top

Start to finish in just a few weeks – must be a record! Our recent snow and ice is partly to credit – not much going outside. The bookcase quilt top is finally done. It was fun and tedious at the same time. There was cutting of lots of different fabrics, different sizes. To personalize the quilt, I included some appliques like a mug with the recipient’s first name initial, and a snow globe with an “engraved nameplate.” I also added a kitty and a vase with flowers. I love how the wood grain fabric brought it all together.

As luck would have it, the backing fabric was already in my stash. Wow – isn’t this just perfect!

A trip to the long arm will take place the end of the week. Hopefully there won’t be any more snow to keep me home! And the pile of fabric used for this quilt? All put away – amazing!

I hope you’re all staying warm and safe and enjoying whatever you’re doing to occupy your time!

  1. Speedy! And so cute – love the kitty! I have started a book shelf quilt and pull it out about once a year. Probably the size of a pillow now! LOL It will look like antique book shop before I finish.
