Another finished quilt!!

It feels good to be finishing up some projects! Maybe that WIP Wednesday really works!
This is a top I made a couple of years ago. My granddaughter loved it when she saw it this Summer and that's all the motivation I needed to finish it up. It will travel to California soon!

The fabric is an organic line called Free to Grow by Nancy Mims. Seems the quintessential quilt for a four (almost five) year-old.
I think the pattern is a Fig Tree, although I can't find it on their website. I borrowed it from a friend ~ maybe she'll tell us in the comments.

The quilting seemed effortless on this one. I stippled the sashing, and quilted each block with a whimsical spiral or floral design.

I love a striped binding on the diagonal and this line had a great one!

And I had to share my Beautyberry bush. It's purple berries are so gorgeous this time of year. I love the fact that they look almost fake ~ and consequently left untouched by the birds. . . . Cindy


  1. This is really sweet, and I love that your daughter loved it!

  2. Your quilt is beautiful and your granddaughter will be so delighted when you come to see her. I've never heard of a Beauty Berry bush. I am a lover of purple flowers which you might remember, so I'm going to look into this one. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I love love love how you echoed the border in the quilt! I've never thought of picking out the border first, but its so lovely I might have to give it a try.

  4. The big yellow flower is so cute and the border fabric is adorable. Great finish!

  5. This is gorgeous! I love the border fabric and the colors go so well together. I love this quilt!

  6. I always love your quilts. this one is just amazing. The colors and the pattern work wonderfully together. I am sure your granddaughter will give it much love.

  7. This quilt is so cute and quirky and I'm with you on the striped diagonal binding. I've done it several times. Always looking for stripes for bindings. N
