Anchors Aweigh Baby Quilt is Finished!

I am entering my first quilt into the ginormous quilting festival going on over at Amy's Creative Side.
I wouldn't have quilted it this month without the extra incentive of the festival, I was just to nervous, I mean it is my first quilt and I have a little machine.
I just quilted wavy lines across, it's what Tula Pink suggested anyway.

You can go here and here if you want to see more pictures.


I'm # 96 in the Baby Quilt Section

 The anchor quilt goes really well with the pillow I finished this month for the Echinops and Aster Honeycomb Stitch Along.
The front of the cushion

I also made my pincushion swap partner 2 pincushions with scraps, even used scrap thread (I mean really who can throw away Aurifil thread).

The top one is filled with metal shavings and the bottom has a magnet underneath to pick up pins.

I also finished the bags for my mom to use for her husbands diabetic medicines, you can read more about that here.
 I have a few more things that will be finished before the end of the month but this is what I can only show for now, if you come back on Tuesday May 28th I will have more.
And I am having a birthday giveaway starting June 5th so come back for that too!

Linking to A Lovely Year of Finishes May, Yah!

your quilt looks amazing - can't believe you quilted it on your little machine :-) and it obviously worked ok with the ikea blanket as the back?

I absolutely love your anchor quilt! The colors are so soothing, and even though it is monochromatic, there is plenty of contrast. Great job!!
