friday finishes

Here are two of the pinwheels from my teacher quilt.
They didn't end up in the teacher quilt because
they were going the wrong way!
I decided they needed to put to good use!
My 16 year old son will be traveling to Spain
in a couple of weeks and will be staying with a host family.
I think these will make a nice thank you gift.
Don't you?
And I'm sure these little pinwheels will be happy to travel.
I would!!

You can see the fun fabric on the back
and my simple quilting lines.




This quilt will also be traveling soon!
I finished putting the blocks together,
quilting and binding.
The blocks were made by friends
who also wrote little messages on the blocks.
Kind of a signature quilt.
The quilt will be gifted to a missionary couple
going to Uruguay.

I can now say I'm an international quilter!!!
:)


I'm adding this to Amy's sew and tell Friday!!!
It's fun to see what everyone accomplishes each week!

  1. Beautiful quilt and beautiful potholders!! I love that backing fabric! I'll hopefully have some of those to show myself next week - I'm teaching a Quilting 101 this weekend, using potholders as "mini-quilts" to teach the concepts. Good thing - I really need some!!

  6. Those pot holders will be a great gift. Nice idea. Your signature quilt is beautiful and I love the idea that the recipient will be always covered in the love of those at home.

  14. Love the pinwheels in the pot holders! I have some extra pinwheels myself from a quilt I started, and I didn't even think to put them into a pot holder! I get bummed about binding my pot holders though, so I avoid making them more and more. :P
