May Finish and Slow Sewing

Little Boys Britches, my One Monthly Goal for May has been finished for a while.

The pattern is found in the book Quilts from the Barn--a Quiltmania book. I made mine a bit smaller than shown in the book.

It was a fun quilt to make.
Each block is 3 fabrics from my stash: two that coordinate and a background from my Edyta Sitar Silver Linings bundle of fat quarters.


It seems we went directly from winter to summer. Yesterday our outdoor thermometer registered 100 degrees--yikes! This morning was nice and cool, but it's starting to heat up again--a good reason to stay inside, enjoy the air conditioning and do some Slow Sunday Stitching!

  1. Your Little Boys Britches is beautiful. Love how you quilted it, too. Whew! 100! I was hot enough with 89.

    Love those blues - can't wait to see what that looks like.

  2. What a beautiful finish / congratulations! :)

    Our weather has been a bizarre back and forth...the seasons are no longer what they were like when I was growing up or even raising my kids :(

  5. I like how the "Little Boy Britches" quilt turned out. Every time I have seen pictures of your progress on it, I think I should dig my template set out and then I forget about it. The block design would work well in a lot of my stash fabrics.
    Love those blue fabrics you are using!
