Friday Finish!

This is the first Friday I've had both a finish and time to post, so it's my first link up to Amanda Jean's finish it up Friday

I finished this quilt a more than a week ago, but heard that it reached its recipient today.  The pattern is out of Fat Quarter Quilts (or More Fat Quarter Quilts - I'm not positive).  It's a lap size quilt for my husband's grandmother, recovering from an injury.  This quilt is like a hug that I could put in the mail!  I quilted in the ditch on the lattice part and straight lines on the borders.  I wanted to do some free motion in the borders, but I don't trust my FMQ skills enough yet.  I'm so happy with the color choices I made for the front.  The back is orange fabric that I used for our wedding and had left over in my stash. 

I love that my quilt has legs!  My very patient husband got dragged out early in the morning before our commutes to take some quilt pictures and get some odd looks. 

My Star Log Cabin quilt is also a finish from last week, but I'm not counting it because it doesn't have a label yet (so it's not really done, right?) and I don't have any pictures of it bound.  This is the one I started some time in high school - I'm trying to figure out exactly when I started it so I can label it properly.  Maybe for next Friday?
