Friday Finish #1 for 2017 -- Country Roads, Humble Quilts Mystery

With 85 WIPS to choose from, I thought I would start small so that I could feel accomplished with a finish on the first Friday of 2017.  This little quilt is called Country Roads which was a Mystery by Lori at Humble Quilts.

I finished the little quilt top on 10.25.15.  I had forgotten about it because it was so small and filed away in the "Kathy's quilts to be quilted" tub in the longarm room.  Taking a better inventory of my quilts on my WIP list helped me find it.

I love it!  I quilted it with very dense straight line quilting.  I can't stop feeling it!  I love the texture.  It lays so flat on the table.  The texture is perfect for a wall hanging or table topper. 
It measures 21" x 21".


 
I backed it with a solid lilac piece that I had in the bin.  I just liked it.

 
It's time to link up those finishes for the Finish-A-Long Q1 Link-Up.  I'm linking up with Rhonda's Quilt Ramblings here. for the Q1 finish.  You can see my original 2017 Goal Setting post here.

Back then, this quilt was just a little quilt top awaiting a back, quilting, and binding.

  4. Nicely done. Maybe continue finishing the small pieces for a while so you can cross a bunch off the list?
