Lots of Hugs II

I was glad to finally get this one finished. I didn’t want to have to mail it along with the previous quilt that goes with it. I don’t know about you but I despise shipping quilts.  I hear too many horror stories about them being lost in the mail, not knowing if they were received, and Lord forbid the uncomfortable having to ask if you received the quilt I put so many months in to creating. Okay, okay… Enough of that. I knew if I would hurry up with the embroidered labeling, and the notes, I could hand deliver them, when I was over that way, which I finally did. This week!

I actually cut the pieces for this one when I had “all” the scraps spilled out, back in May,  when I creating the first version of this quilt. You can read all the details here. So when this cause put out a call for quilts, I knew what I needed to do. What a bonus to have had this lovely piece of voile, tucked away to use for the backing, making it especially cozy. This is the first time I’ve used voile on a quilt. What a beautiful piece of fabric to quilt through! Between that and the Quilter’s Dream batting, this was definitely a dream to hand quilt!

So my finish this week is both Lots of Hugs II, but primarily getting both of these quilts wrapped up, notes written and actually delivered!

Yay, for wrapping things up! I love Fridays!
