2 Finished Quilts

Hello everyone! I'm excited to finally have 2 of my quilts finished and ready to go to the long-armer tomorrow. These were supposed to be finished in March but going into the hospital and having my daughter 12 weeks early put a hold on them! So now they are ready and should be done in time for Christmas. First up is Double Crossed. The yellow under it is the backing. It is twin size at approximately 70x84.

Then it's my $5 quilt. Now, I should clarify. The entire quilt did not cost $5. One of my local quilt shops does a BOM quilt every year. The way last year's was run, you paid $5 in January to get your first block. Then, as long as you brought in your completed block each month, you didn't have to pay another cent until the end of the year when it was time to pick out your finishing kit (sashing, borders, backing and binding). They did basic blocks and intermediate blocks and the intermediate blocks cost an additional $3/month. So I paid $41 for 24 blocks, plus the finishing kit. Not too shabby in my opinion! I ended up getting my backing and binding from a different quilt shop so they are 2 fabrics that are not otherwise in the quilt, but I think they coordinate quite nicely. This will be a Christmas gift for my grandpa. The red under it is the backing. It is also twin size, at approximately 69x95.

I am linking up today to Needle and Thread Thursday, Can I Get a WHOOP WHOOP? and crazy mom quilts' finish it up Friday.

My Quilt Infatuation

Have a Sew Crafty Weekend!



  1. Wow, i love the three dimensional effect of Double Crossed. It looks really great in the fabrics you chose too Jenn.
    Your five dollar sampler turned out wonderfully too! The inner border with all the big circles is so cool! Do you remember the name of that fabric?

  2. Both of your quilts are beautiful! Your sampler quilt turned out great. I'm a sucker for a BOM quilt

  3. They both look great and I think you should have plenty of time to get them finished by Christmas!

  4. I really like both tops, congrats on some great finishes.

  5. I like how the darker colors make the lighter blocks recede in the first quilt, it's really nice. Great quilts!
