A Lovely Year of Finishes - #1, Sort of

This is the month I'm attempting to finish MANY of the WiPs that have accumulated.  My friend Wendi and fellow ECMQG member has inspired me with all of her completed quilts because of this linky.

Hosted by Melissa of Sew BitterSweet Designs and Shanna of Fiber of All Sorts, it's a year long nudge that encourages us to finish what we start.  (I should've joined earlier.)

I have good intentions.  I just get sidetracked by other things.  New fabric.  A new project.  Or maybe a challenge or a swap.  It's always something.  Sometimes, it's just because the idea I have in my head needs to sit an perk awhile longer.

However, after completing a quilt last month that had lingered for 18 months (yikes!), I'd like to make another one leave my house so it can be enjoyed and played with and snuggled under like quilts are intended to do. 

This particular quilt was intended for as a baby shower gift quite awhile ago.  Said baby is probably 17 or 18 months old now.  Not exactly a baby.  Time to finish.

Here is the original post.  And here are the pictures of my Peace, Love, & Happyness quilt as it was when I put it away.

The best part now, after all of this time, is I know EXACTLY how I'm going to quilt it.  

I can't wait to get started again.


  1. It is always a good feeling to get something finished, isn´t it? This quilt will be beautiful.

  2. I love the colors in this quilt. And especially love the red. Not only is it unexpected, but its a good pop of color! I agree that quilts are meant to be used and whoever gets this little treasure will love it for years and years!

  3. i love this ...this is my absolute favorite way of piecing now...xo

  4. Oh my! This is SO pretty! You're so very creative with your designs and color choices! I'd love to hang out with you and see how you work. I have no doubt the quilting will suit it perfectly.
