Another January Finish...Siggy Quilt

Still rolling along...it's been a long time since I've had this many finishes in a month!

How lovely is this...not very big, but I LOVE it....I used some of the HST's that I cut off when making my siggies for the swap and made little pinwheels for the corner stones of the sashing..
I decided to use those four siggie left over blocks in the corners of the border, I thought that way they will be seen and not hidden on the back.
It's very simply quilted...just down in the ditch around borders and sashings...then I stitched in diamonds down the borders and coss-overs on the sashing..
Well that's nearly all of that sashing and border fabric used up...and that gorgeous paisley backing fabric from the nine patch quilt, is joined up and used up in the backing here as well....gosh these fabrics have been so handy to have on hand.
I'm still hand-quilting my Dolly / Dresden quilt...but I think now I can start on something new and different..what will it be!

I hope your having a productive weekend...it's so hot here, not much to do but stay in and sew....♥

  4. I like how your pinwheels turned out too. I saved all of the corners off of a wedding quilt I made and turned it into a pinwheel baby blanket for their first child.

    The siggy quilt is lovely. Neat idea on how to use up the leftover blocks!

  21. I like the choice of fabric you used for sashing the siggie blocks. I like dark quilts but this gives your project a lighter look that I do think is very nice.
