Thursday Finish

For a long time now I have been reading the Crazy Mom Quilts blog.  I love her blog and enjoy her style.  She is to blame for my Connecting Threads addiction.  Anyway, she has started Finish it Friday.  Hopefully encouraging people to finish projects.  I so NEED to finish some, I have, in my hubbies eyes, way TOO many unfinished projects.  I am happy to say that I completed one of the baby quilt tops done yesterday.  I know that it was Thursday not Friday, but it is done.  (Confession:  I started cutting out another last night.) 

Quilt pattern: New Wave (Oh Fransson! blog)  I love this pattern.  This is the third top I have made from this pattern.  A second top the same as the picture and the third is made from pink and brown fabrics for a baby girl.  I reduced the size (5 rows by 9 rows) for a baby size version.  I plan on making a full pattern size at some point.  I plan on machine quilting all three.  Hopefully while the little kiddo is nappying I can baste this top and begin the quilting.

Last night I also finsihed taking out another seam in the quilt top for hubbies sister.  (The gift for his side of the family.)  This will be the 4th seam I have pad to rip!!  If all goes as planned the top should be done this weekend and baste after bedtime Sunday evening.
