First finish of the new year: Satoru

This quilt is ancient.. well, it wasn't my oldest UFO, but it had been sitting, pin basted, in my closet for over a year, and the top was completed sometime in 2007, (the center came from a guild workshop).  The fabrics came from my hubby's trip to Japan in January 2002.  Yeah, for a newly finished quilt, it's got some history already.
You can see the quilting better on the back.
Around new years I tried to finish up a bunch of smallish quilts so I'd have hand sewing (binding) ready for after the baby came.. some mindless stitching to keep me connected to being a quilter.. but, the kid's still not here and I've had loads of time to sew.  So, whoops, finished it.  At least I can link up this week (TGIFF & Crazy Mom Quilts)
(old posts about this quilt can be found here, and here)


  1. I love those blues and browns! Gorgeous! When oh when is that baby coming???

  2. OH my gosh! That is the best twister style quilt I have seen. I love the combination with the fans on the edges. Very, very nice finish here. :)

  3. I think a picture of this top is in my favorites on flickr...never made the connection that it was yours. Glad you got it done!

  4. Your quilting is wonderful and the colors are too. My guess is that the baby will be born on Tuesday so don't forget!! Best wishes!!

  5. Congratulations! It's a beautiful quilt. Best wishes with the new baby!

  6. That's very cool - it's always nice to make something that uses special fabrics that have a special meaning behind them. I love the quilting pattern on the back. All the best for the new arrival!

  7. Congratulation. The Quilt is wonderful.
    I like the colours and fabrics.

    Greetings from Germany, Manuela.
