Graham's quilt

This baby quilt was finished in 2015, but I don't think I showed the finished quilt. It was for a new baby on the block who was expected in November. Didn't finish until December and didn't get it to the parents until this past weekend.

1-, 2-, 3- and 4-inch squares combined to make 6-inch squares and set with four 6-inch squares of the focus fabric print. 

Quilted horizontally and vertically with an elongated zigzag along the block seams and two or three inches between.

The backing, which I forgot to take a picture of, is black with bright circles in orange, blue, green and red. A perfect match for the top. The binding is a solid black. The quilt measures 37 inches square.

A Year of Finishes

Today I finished a book, a block and a top. Maybe that's a sign I'll get some things accomplished this year.

The book: "What Alice Forgot" by Liane Moriarty.

The block: No. 40 of the 1718 Coverlet.

The top: Pumpkin Peel from "Small Pieces, Spectacular Quilts" by Mary Elizabeth Kinch and Biz Storms.
