It's a Happy Quilting day when you finish projects

Wow thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who left a comment on the BeamNRead Blog Hop. I usually try to answer comments to my blog, but this time I may not get to it. So I just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to comment and enter the giveaway. Today you can visit my friends Barb at Bejeweled Quilts by Barb, and Susan at Hanging On by a Needle and Thread. Be sure to follow the blog hop everyday and leave a comment to enter the giveaways.

I did finish the quilt for my daughter and wanted to show you how I finished the back.

There were some words left from the panel, so I pieced them into the back.

I just couldn't let these words drift into the stash cave.
And you know what else was left over from this fabric?

Yep, selvages!! Aren't they yummy? I loved them so much, and there was very little fabric left over. So I made a Tuffet :-)

The back was some fun left over green polka dot.

Thank you Anna Griffin for this beautiful fabric. I just love it!!

Waste not, want not!

Happy Quilting!

You are so clever, creative, and cheerful...(couldn't help myself). Just love what all you have done.....and few scraps left over....whohooo!!

It's wonderful that you used the rest of the sayings on the back, they would have just languished back in the stash! I'm sure she has been waiting very patiently for you to finish this quilt LOL.

Hi there, I too just finished a baby quilt I was making for a friend-her daughter is having a little boy. I'm so thankful I am done and going to put it in the mail today. Then I'm on to another quilt for a friends birthday.
Love the back of this quilt and also the pillow-never thought of doing this-I usually throw that scrap away(once I'm done matching fabric).
I will check out the blogs you highlighted.
Hugs, Noreen
