Friday Finishes: Moustaches Quilt

Someday, I will start and finish a quilt in a timely manner but this one is not that :)  My sister requested this quilt way back in early November.  And I though, no problem, I can even finish it for her birthday in mid December.  Yeah, not so much.  But now its done!


I do enjoy making these (this is my second) and I love this line of fabric (PB&J by Basic Grey for Moda) but I will definitely be taking a break from both the pattern and the fabric!


I quilted it with a medium grey thread in meandering loops around the moustaches.  After washing the moustaches have a nice puffiness to them.


My sister is a little bit tomboy and a little bit fancy girl so I backed it in the Daisy Mae print from PB&J and bound it in Navy Bag of Chips.  Finished quilt measure just under 60" square and can now head to it's final home!  It's also my first monthly finish for ALYOF.

Linking up with Amanda Jean and ALYOF!

  7. Very fun! I've been tasked with a sewing project from my sister too but haven't gotten farther than buying the fabric.
