Design Wall Monday....

...AND
 the First Finish
for 2014!!

Judy at Patchwork Times is hosting a
and I am joining in on the fun.

Each month she will give us a different block
to make from scraps.
(Go to the link above for more details.)

Well....
I THOUGHT I could do scrappy...
and quickly realized....
I am a CONTROLLED scrappy quilter!
Pulling pieces out of a bag and sewing
is not for me!
I just cannot do it.

BUT...
I am using my scraps in these blocks.


I have LOTS of batik scraps!
Aren't the colors so happy and fun?



THEN...
A Finish for 2014!!

Last night I finished hand sewing the binding to this quilt.
(While watching Downton Abbey!!)


The Baby Quilt is completed.


To think that I almost stopped making this
after the pinwheels were sewn together.
I am so pleased with how it turned out!

The backing is all recycled men's shirts, too.
The only part that is not made from the recycled shirts 
is the binding,
but I found the perfect match to the sashing!

Do you name all of your quilts?
I have such a difficult time coming up with names
so I tend not to do it.
I do need to add the label to this little one, though.

Visit Judy at Patchwork Times to see what others are working on this week.

Happy Quilting!
:)

Love your batiks they are so cheerful! Love your plaid pinwheels too. I name my quilts sometimes the quilt speaks to me and names itself by how I am feeling about it other times it is an obvious name like churn dash in blue and yellow.
