February FNwF

 Last night was the first Friday of the month which means Friday Night with Friends, see what everyone was working on here http://stitchingcubbyhole.blogspot.com/2015/02/sign-up-time.html. I spent Thursday and Friday night finishing the quilting on my Peppy Patches and Pinwheels! This morning, I attached the binding and washed it all up. I made this as part of Sarah's Sweet 16 Quilt Along. It is 54 inches square after washing and made from my stash.
 Here is an up close of the quilting. I just quilted it on the diagonal about 3/4 of an inch apart. I used the walking foot on my Pfaff.
 Kelly over at My Quilt Infatuation has inspired me to label and name my quilts, so here is my label. Simple and informative!
The only thing I bought for this quilt was the backing. I made a scrappy binding and sewed it down with my machine. I plan on donating this to Happy Chemo as part of the Hands2Help 2015 Charity Quilt Challenge and it will more than likely be washed a bunch.
