First Quilt Finish of 2016!
I've mentioned this Hawaiian fabric before, but my parents brought it to me from Hawaii years ago.
Last fall I finally set the top together.
This week I have a finished quilt.
It's really simple, just 9-patches with sashing. Simple straight-line quilting.
...Straight-ish line quilting. :)
As usual, I didn't follow a pattern or anything, so I didn't have a specific size in mind when I was making it, but it ended up between lap and twin (my tall 15yo is holding it for me here). A good size for naps.
I went the semi-cheesy route and got Hawaiian themed fabric for the back.
This quilt will be perfect to have by my bed ... an excellent napping quilt! I like to nap on top of the covers, but with a quilt to pull over me. When I get a chance to nap. Which isn't often, but it's supposed to be really good for you, I'd love to take more naps! More naps in 2016 - a worthy goal! :)
Since the quilting isn't too close together, it feels rather puffy.
This quilt is rather fitting to finish this year, as we were married in Hawaii... in 1996. That means this year will be our 20th anniversary!
I am hoping this is just the first in a string of Quilt Finishes this year! I just looked back at this post, and I guess I've gotten 3 of my WIP quilts done in about a year. And the top of a 4th. That's better than I thought I'd done, but I hope this year will be even better!
