Short Hours :: A Finished Quilt

We had a wonderful Father's Day.  Here is my hubby and son sharing the special day together.

I've finished up the Short Hours quilt too. This is a traditional quilt pattern called hour glass and I just loved making it with my scraps from my Swooning Picnic Quilt.  The array of colors makes this a really fun little girl's doll quilt or baby girl bassinet quilt.

Again I quilted using simple straight lines through each little block.  I love my walking foot, it never gives me trouble and always does a nice job.  

 I grabbed the left over yardage for the backing and some binding.  I hand stitched the binding closed this time.  Thought it'd be a fun hand project and it was.  *Little tip, use hand quilting thread, not the regular cotton thread used for the machine.  Hand quilting thread is stiffer and doesn't tangle or knot as easily.  I finished it in no time at all.  I like the way it appears seamless on the back.  Maybe this will become a new habit...maybe.

My supply of this fabric collection is very slim now.  But thats okay, I've now got room for new prints to stash (I'll share when they arrive).
