Finished: Twin Beep Beep Quilts!


Handmade by Heidi

Tonight, I was planning to hunker down in my sewing room for Friday Night Sew-In, but it turns out we're having some company come in tonight...so I spent a good chunk of my day sewing, and I'm pleased to say I got a darn good bit done.  I even have a finish to show you!

The twin Beep Beep quilts are done!!  I spent Wednesday and Thursday quilting both of these quilts, using an all-over meandering stipple.  I had the binding all prepared and ready to roll, so I spent today sewing that on, and then sending them to the magic washer and dryer to add the awesome, wonderful crinklyness that I love about quilts.

I'm really excited to get these quilts off in the mail to their rightful owners on Monday!  I think these little boys are going to just love these quilts, I know I loved working on them.
