The red and white swap quilt is finished and more!

Four years ago I participated in a red and white fabric exchange. The story behind all the fabric can be read in my two previous posts. It's really interesting to see where all the fabric came from, not only 37 states, but some was international!

First post 

Second post 

I've had this top completed now for several years. I set it up earlier this summer and quickly realized how much I had missed hand quilting.

This was the last roll.

Here is what I had left after binding. That was almost too close for comfort! Notice the selvege blocks? I also won those in a give away from Sew many ways.

Ta Da!  Finished.

I also completed this baby quilt for a baby girl, who's to arrive early fall. I machine quilted it. Kadie had bought the fabric and gave me an idea of what she wanted. It turned out even cuter than I imagined.

This was week before last, last week we were in Florida spoiling the two grandsons. Maybe that will be the next blog post. Just don't hold your breath.
