Finish Friday

I am so happy that its Friday and boy did this Friday go by quick its already bedtime around here. I'm linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts and TGIFF.  So a quick round up!

A finished quilt top:

I forgot to mention that all the fabric was pulled from my stash. My hubby was really impressed. I love the color combination.  Actually I really love the quilt and really want to make another one.  I can see these color in pillows, table runners, and placemats. 

I also got my linen towels done:

I've been stocking everybody's elses towels and one of the big thing was the thread color of the zigzag.  Everybody that used matching thread were really glad they did and the ones that used one color on all of it would've prefered matching thread.  So I went with matching thread but let me tell you while I was doing it I was wishing I didn't have so many different colors.  I also did machine binding for the first time.  I'm not a big fan but since they're just towels they were okay.  I feel that hand stitched binding is like giving it that one last final touch of love. 

It's a big weekend coming up around here, my older one is turning the big 7 tomorrow and Father's Day Sunday.  Have a great weekend.
