Churn Dash Quilt Top Finish ~ WIP Wednesday

I finished up my churn dash quilt top! It came out to be 71" x 89". I still don't quite know what I'm going to use it for. It's too small for our bed and too big for any of the kids bed. I may end up just putting it at the foot of our bed, folded.
I used Indigo Crossing from Moda on this quilt.

Sorry that the picture isn't that great. The quilt is too big for my clothesline and it was cold and damp outside this morning, so it is what it is.

I'm going to be sending this quilt out to Kathy to quilt. I am looking forward to seeing what she does with it.

And in other WIP news, I got this quilt back from my sweet friend, Christa. She quilted it for me and did a wonderful job! I'm going to be entering it in a semi-local quilt guild show in May. When I have some pictures of the finished quilt, I'll share. I still need to get the binding on it. That's my WIP goal for today!

Barn #4 ~ Quilty Barn Along

Here is my fourth barn for the QBA hosted by Lori Holt. I think it's my favorite one yet! Probably because lately I'm a sucker for churn dash quilts. Which, by the way, I almost have my churn dash quilt top done. I'm hoping to share it this Wednesday.
I love scrappy quilts and this quilt, once all the barns are complete, will have a very scrappy look.
I put the borders on this block after it was finished and now I'll go back and put the borders on the first three.

If you'd like to see my previous ones, here are barns one, two, and three.
Have a great week!

Rained In...Quilting Time!

We don't ever get enough snow around here to be "snowed in" but we do get plenty of rain and this last Thursday through Sunday it rained, and rained, and rained, and rained. No one wanted to spend much time outside. So on Saturday, I sewed. All day. And it paid off.
I got a quilt top done for a special friend who just had a baby boy a few months ago. This is a very special baby that she has waited on for over 10 years. God is so faithful and good!
I made the quilt large enough so that she could use it on his toddler bed (if she chooses to.) I know he's got a while before he's in a toddler bed (he's only 3 months old now) but she has a lot of baby blankets and she has gone hard core with his cowboy theme, so I thought she may like this for the future.

I used the same line of fabric, Happy Trails from Benartex, that I used in making Mason's big boy quilt. The solid brown is a Bella Solid from Moda. 
I had a few leftover cut blocks from the quilt so I put this pillow face together. I was thinking of trying to find a pillow form for it but I think I'll just stuff it instead.

I've also got some fabric left over to make a matching pillow case too.
When everything is sewn and quilted, I'll share the finished pieces.
Have a great week!
