It’s Week 9 of the Finish those unfinished Quilts 2021 challenge! I hope you’ve been able to make some progress on your list.

I finished my scrappy baby size Butterflies and Blooms Quilt top! This pattern will be in my shop July 13, 2021!
It’s a 16 inch block quilt that can be made scrappy using fat quarters or you can make it using 6 main colors (3 for the Butterflies and 3 for the Blooms) with a background fabric.
While I am waiting for my backing fabric to arrive in the mail, I decided to work on my Colorful Tiles Quilt. I finished the making the backing, I basted and got about half of the quilting done. I went with ‘organic’ straight lines from the top to the bottom.
I quilted lines 1/2 inch from the seams with my walking foot. Then I measured 1 1/2 inch from those quilting lines, so I would have 2 additional lines down the center of the blocks.
THIS WEEKS GOALS
Since I’m working on the last quilt on my list, I think this will probably be my last week working on my UFQs list! Woohoo! My goal is to finish quilting my Colorful Tiles quilt and bind it.
I’m also hoping to start on a throw size Butterflies and Blooms Quilt. I should be getting the fabric I ordered in a couple days.
