a sweet finish

During our lockdown time here in NZ of 100 days+ my focus has been on simple sewing ✅
and letting the fabric do the work with interesting combinations 
And this sweet quilt ticks both those boxes!

Quilt Details:
"Sweetpea" Quilt {aka square in a square}
Pattern available at Queen of Fabric here
Finished quilt measurements  42” x 56” (106cm x 142cm)
Baptist Fan edge to edge quilting by  Leeanne from quiltmekiwi.
Batting - Wool/polyester 
Backing - scrappy vintage sheet leftovers
I wanted a soft mauve finish to this quilt, so for the binding I chose a very early cotton from my stash

Another quilt finished, and that makes it a total of 16 for 2021 so far
I might just manage to squeeze in one more 'finish' before the end of the year... fingers crossed 🤞 

Linking up with Cyndy for 'oh scrap' here


  1. Oh this a sweet quilt Linda! The central squares really stand out with the neutral fabric on the corners, and Baptist Fan was definitely a good choice for the quilting design, fits in perfectly.

  2. That is absolutely gorgeous - a wonderful tribute to vintage, very sweet. Happy Red level 'freedoms' - I hope you can start to get out and about again at last. I'm lucky to have been able to live fairly 'normally' down here in Southland.

  3. Very lovely quilt, a simple design but very pretty. Hapy stitching!

  4. Just a beautiful quilt!! I love the soft florals you've used...and great quilting, too Nice work hugs, Julierose

  5. What a beautiful quilt, Linda. Such pretty fabrics and gentle colours which are shown off to their advantage with this square in a square block. Love your choice of binding too. Gorgeous!

  6. Like Linda said (above), it's a beautiful quilt! Gosh, THREE Lindas in agreement. How about that?! I'm glad you found a productive way to get through quarantine, and now that you're out of the "big Q," let's keep it that way! Enjoy this holiday season!

  7. What a great idea for florals! I've saved her pattern.

  8. I have no doubt that you will get very close to another finish (or finished) by the end of the year. This quilt is so sweet and soft and soothing.

  9. Love, love, love the binding color. It really enhances the quilt.

  10. Definitely a delightful finish.

  11. So soft and sweet and cuddly!
