Friday Finish

Friday is here! It’s been a beautiful, quiet week with a bit more time in my quilt cave. I’ve finished my snowman mini (see my last post for a photo), and I finished this little Kim Diehl mini. I have had the top done for awhile; it’s been sitting off to the side because I’m not happy with the way it turned out. I like it much better now that it’s done, but it’s not my best work. I’m trying to remember what was going on when I was piecing it, since I clearly was having some issues. Yep, it’s been that long. Ah well, it will add a nice touch to a display.

I took a little break from piecing quilts and made this little zipper pouch for a friend’s birthday. It’s an easy tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Company. I’m pretty sure I’ll be making a few more of these. It’s a great way to use up scraps, and makes a fun gift to have on hand.

I’m linking up today with Crazy Mom Quilts, since these two projects are finished. Woohoo!

  1. Beautiful job on that quilt! And love hearing about all that you accomplish every week!

  2. I like the Kim Diehl piece a lot! It’s interesting to look back on an older UFO and see what we do better now, isn’t it? I started a quilt for our bed a year ago, but didn’t have enough fabric and wasn’t loving the design. I set it aside and pulled it out again this spring for the Hands 2 Help challenge and boy howdy was I amazed at how bad my piecing was! Fortunately, I was able to square up the blocks and the prints are so busy that they hide a multitude of sins. Like you, I’m happier with it now that it’s done.

    1. Thanks, Louise! I’d like to see your quilt too. Some quilts are just learning lessons. I still love Kim Diehl’s quilts, so I’m already thinking of which one I want to make next.
