Friday’s Finishes

The 4 Christmas placemats that I took to demonstrate binding on are done … and no, I did not get them completed while I was teaching everyone how to do it. They got finished this morning.


I also finished up a UFO baby quilt!  This is pattern, by Anita Grossman Solomon, is from a 2006 Quiltmaker magazine. I think I made this UFO when the magazine first came out … so it’s an 11 year old UFO!  You actually make 3 quilts at the same time.  The other 2 quilts were gifted a LONG time ago.  This one had such a plain centre, I wasn’t sure what to do.  But this giraffe outline – quilted with a contrasting colour was a perfect finish for the quilt.  If you want to make this quilt, it is now a free quilt on Craftsy.  Click HERE.


And here is a close up of the giraffe.

  1. Super Sized Nine Patch! I’ve made many sets of those; it’s a fabulous go-to pattern. I love the outlined giraffe in your center–very creative and a fabulous idea!


  2. Hi Gail,
    That giraffe is just perfect for the center of the quilt. It’s like it just waited for you to figure it out. It’s such a friendly looking giraffe, too – a baby and its mom are just going to love it for sure. ~smile~ Roseanne
