Favorite Finish Monthly Linkup - March

Welcome to the first Favorite Finish Monthly Linkup!

My favorite finish of March is a quick charity finish that I have not even had time to blog about (we just finished getting new carpet in the upstairs so blogging time has been limited).

Back many years ago, I made a Swoon block (pattern by Camille Roskelley).  I had thought about making a Swoon quilt, but after one block I did not feel like making anymore.  This lone block has been hanging out in my sewing room too long so I needed to be finished into something.

I added 5" (finished) borders to the 24" block to make a nice baby quilt that was the perfect size to use a single width backing.  A quick open swirl quilt pattern and some plaid binding finished the quilt.

This quilt will be donated to through the Greenville Modern Quilt Guild to the Greenville Hospital System for children when they are taken from their homes by DSS.

Ready for the party?  Here is a reminder of the party details:
  • The linky party will open at 12:01am EST on the last day of the month and will be open for 5 days, through the 4th at 11:59 pm EST.
  • You can link up both blog posts and Instagram posts to the party.
                Marci Girl Designs has an excellent tutorial on how to link up a Instagram post to Inlinkz.
  • If linking a blog post, I ask that you please add a link back to the party (and the button graphic if you would like).
  • Please visit at least 3 other links (and preferably leave comments) to share the love and celebration :)
