In Stitches - HQM Quilt 18

 It is Week 18 of the Happy Quilting Marathon and l am excited to share this fun little finish!!!   This was a quilt that I made from my August 2021 Sew Sampler Box and I just loved it as soon as I saw the pattern.  I whipped up the quilt top within a week of it arriving, and it has sat and waited since then, seriously, I am sad to admit that.  But that is why I needed this kind of Marathon, right!!!  And happy day, it's all done!!!!  

So many of Lori Holt's fabrics are just so adorable!!!  I love the vintage feel to them, and they go perfectly with this fun pattern of basic stitches.   Just so cute,   This quilt was made using a Stitch Jolly Bar (Half of a Layer Cake) and is going to make the cutest little baby gift.   

And yes, this is an exclusive pattern, but there is a free pattern that comes with the Stitch Jolly Bar and it is equally cute!!!   My In Stitches quilt finished at So mine finished at 52" x 60" so it makes a nice lap size quilt or a large baby quilt that is perfect for transitioning into the toddler years. 

When it came time to quilt it, I decided on a classic.   All over echoed paisleys for the win.   Simple and yet so fun for giving lots and lots of texture!!   And shocking but true, this is not 402 thread, it is actually 403 So Fine, my go to color for cream backgrounds ;) little pop on all of the piecing ;)  

And now this In Stitches quilt is ready to loved!!!  I just need another sweet friend to have a baby, luckily there area always lots of special deliveries arriving in the neighborhood as of late.  Maybe it is something in the water, tee hee hee ;)  

And that is Quilt #18 - All the Trimmings ;)  18 Down and only 8 more quilts to go in the Happy Quilting Marathon :)   Wow, it is really getting closer!!! 

And that is it for today, thanks for popping in to share this finish with me!!! 

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!
