I spent this weekend finishing up some UFOs. Why don't I do this more often? It provides such instant gratification, just spending a bit of time on half-done projects to turn them into finished loveliness.
The best finish was the Four Square quilt. Longtime Quilted Cupcake podcast listeners or blog followers may remember this quilt- it was the very first full size quilt I ever started, in 2009. It was featured on my first podcast episode and second blog post ever. Check it out here - we've come a long way since then! In fact, I had to go back and add a title to that post - it didn't have one!
The pattern, called Four Square, is from Quilts & More, Spring 2008. It was also featured on the cover of a BH&G book, Easy Quilt Projects.Singer 201-2 with the big harp.
The quilt's somewhere between full and queen size, which means taking pictures of it (when you're short like me) is a challenge, as shown below:
Here it is on my new bed with the headboard I made (Look for a new tutorial coming soon on my easy headboard project!)
It's backed in flannel, so it's very snuggly and warm, definitely a winter quilt. I think I'll give this one to my hubby. We each like having our own covers - that way, nobody gets cold. Yes, we've been married 20+ years - little things like separate covers make us happy.
I'll share more about this quilt in my next podcast, which I'm planning to record this weekend.
