2nd finish of 2019

Yeah it is done! It was hard to get it finished last evening because I was so tired, but I put my nose to the grindstone and push thru. I did have to sew the label on this morning. The quilt is now sitting on my co-worker's desk for her to take home to her husband tonight. The backing is a light gray flannel. I quilted it with a gray Aurifil on top and a light gray Connecting Threads Essential light gray for the bobbin thread. The size is 67 x 82, and I used Warm & Natural for the batting.

So what is next? I want to get started on quilting the 16 patch quilt, but I need to have the Harley quilt done. My nephew's band playing in Lorain, Ohio and in May and that is where the lady lives that I need to give the quilt to. The t-shirts quilts take long to quilt since I outline the lettering and motifs so 5 1/2 weeks is not a lot of time to get it done. I also have to spend some serious time working at my brother's house and mine. I need to get the Harley quilt pin basted so I guess that will be next on my list.

Well that was a satisfying quick finish!

Your flannel quilt turned out great. It is a nice size for a comfort quilt too.

I'm sure she and her husband love this quilt. The plaids vibrate in the photos.
Yes, finishing the quilt so your nephew can deliver it sounds like the thing to do.

A great finish! Now I'm looking forward to seeing the Harley quilt reach the same stage. I always like your t-shirt quilts but am finding the arrangement of this one particularly pleasing to look at.
