Finished Doll Quilt- FLiQS and some cute Bizbee-ness!



Had to start out with a cute shot of the boy sleeping on the doll quilt before I got it quilted. 


And here it is, quilted..... I just enhanced the light circles by quilting inside them and carrying it into the border. 


Here it is all finished....


...with a hint of the back showing.  
For a change, the binding worked well with the front and the back, yay.  The backing is cool, looks great up close, click on the photo for a closer view.


I haven't made a label yet.


And here's Bizbee snoozing on the quilt in the rocking chair.  
He obviously doesn't appreciate the lamp being on and shining in his eyes.  :)


He got neutered last week and came home from the vet, same day, 
feeling fine and playful and full of beans!   We were glad to get him back, 
we missed him that day for the whole 6 hours he was gone. 

Happy Labor Day!  I hope you are all off doing something fun instead of reading this blog.  :)

I love your quilt, and wish it was heading this way. That kitty looks so cute, but the photos are when he is asleep....bit like babies I suppose.

Amazing! I just love the little quilt! I think I will try my hand at smaller quilts just so I can experience different techniques! You are an inspiration!

Love your circular looking quilt! Love the colors and the effect...also a cat lover too. What is the pattern you used in the quilt at the top of your post called?

Susan said...

Mary Beth, the quilt I just finished and am showing in this blog post is called a Kaleidoscope quilt. It is paper pieced, which worked well since it's so small, but for larger ones, you don't need to paper piece it, you can cut out angled pieces.

Thanks for the compliments!

I do not know if it’s just me or if everybody else encountering issues with your site. It seems like some of the text in your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This might be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously. Cheers

Dear anon- I'm sorry you're having trouble viewing my blog. It shows up fine for me, the text is always centered under the photographs and lists of things are on the right hand side. Let's see if anyone else is having trouble... I use Mozilla Firefox as my browser.
