A Small UFO Finish

Okay, so who has tops waiting for batting or backing? I'm sure I'm not the only one.

This little quilt's top hung in the closet for awhile, waiting for batting cut-offs of the right size to Frankenbatt* together. Some other recent finishes yielded more batting cut-offs, and finally I had the size needed for this UFO.

At 37" by 41" it's perfect for a baby quilt, and the sweet cat print is just too cute.

Everything's from stash. I know the cat print is relatively recent, one of my LQS's fat quarter sale finds from within the past couple years. The stripe goes back to one of my earliest trips to Paducah in the late 90's.

This little quilt is destined for Little Lambs Foundation for Kids as part of Hands2Help 2020. I've sent them children's quilts before, and this year they also want baby quilts. I'm including it in my Rocking Chair Quilts, see tab above. After a tumble through the washer and dryer, it'll be on its way.

Although I'm sorry for the circumstances of any child under the care of an agency such as Little Lambs, I hope this little quilt brings a bit of comfort for someone.

Linking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict

*For those who are curious, I used iron-on batting tape to butt the edges of the batting pieces together, then stitched over the join with a serpentine zigzag. No ridge, no slippage, you can't feel the joining seams from the outside of the quilt, and it won't come apart within the quilt with repeated laundering.


  1. It's nice to have projects like this ready and waiting for a few more opportune pieces to come together. Lovely finish and I hope it brings a lot of comfort to its reeipient.

  2. Such a sweet quilt and the proportions are perfect.....sometimes I see Chinese coin quilts and the proportions seem off. Beautiful :)

  3. Congratulations on a sweet UFO finish (for a really good cause!!)

  4. Great finish which will surely be loved by a little one. You are definitely not the only one with tops waiting to be quilted. Some days it is so much easier to piece than work on the quilting.

  5. Well yes I do have lots in the 'to be quilted' pile. I purchased two backings yesterday so I hope to soon have two lap size finished. Congrats on your finish. So you still have fabrics from the 90's too:0

  6. I've never seen that kitty print before. It's super cute! Such a lovely little quilt, sure to warm and comfort a small person :)

  7. Congrats on a very sweet finish.
