July Finishes - Pillow and Small Quilt

My July finishes were actually started over a year ago. The pillow is made with Laura Ashley fabrics and is pieced front and back. The small Americana quilt was foundation paper pieced - my first attempt. The flag was redone several times until I finally figured out that I needed to shorten the stitch length to "hold" the pieces together. Once that trick was learned I was able to fly through the rest of it. It is machine quilted in the ditch and is finished in the primitive style to look hand made.


  1. Love your small quilt! Congrats on the win this month :)

  2. The flag is very cute but I think I like the interlocking cushion best!! Such pretty fabrics.
