Finish It Up! Friday - 03.02

I'm running a bit behind for this week's Finish! post, but after weeks of accomplishing little I actually have full-size projects worthy of posting.

First up, a custom twin-sized pirate flag quilt. This one features solid Kona purple and the Day of the Dead-inspired 'Los Novios' print from Alexander Henry:
Second is another finish to a top Jenni created for one of her boys:

He's a very tactile lad, so the backing is unquilted fleece. I quilted the top as usual, with cotton batting and a really ugly cotton print that I couldn't bear to throw away but couldn't honestly imagine using for anything anyone might see!

After quilting it was simply a matter of layering with the fleece, and then binding the two thick layers (quilt and fleece) together. It's much heavier than usual and will be quite warm. It will also require tumble-drying on high!
