A Friday Finish!

I am officially done with all of my Schnibbles from Another Year of Schnibbles! The last top that remained unquilted is now done, done! Yay! :-)

Ta da! Here is Leap Year...

I went with a red binding (all leftovers from other quilts - gotta love that!). I have to say I'm really liking red binding. For the quilting, I chose an off-white thread and quilted a diagonal grid (approx. 2 inches). And I used a high loft polyester batting - I like the puffiness very much!

It is hanging on my sewing room wall for the moment and looking at it while I work makes me incredibly happy!

Finishing this quilt also means I've achieved my goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes this month - how great is that? And I get to put a checkmark next to my 1st goal for the Finish Along.

Now moving onto Charming Stars. I decided to go the lazy easy economical way and purchased a cotton flat sheet on sale to back Charming Stars. I will start quilting it this weekend.

Linking up at AmandaJean's for Finish It up Friday, at From Blank Pages for TTIFF will also be linking up for A Lovely Year of Finishes at the end of the month.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
