Twin Rosewood Lane Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party from Busy Hands Quilts

My finish is a Rosewood Lane Twin XL quilt in Strawberry Fizz.  This is a quick pattern for an "organized" scrappy quilt.


This is a twin XL at 98" long.  Lands alive!  I made extra blocks and intended to use them for a baby quilt but just kept adding rows to the quilt without counting. I realized my mistake before quilting it, but forgot to take them off and even made the batting in the larger size without noticing.  So twin XL it is!

Brick Cottage Lane 2 | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party from Busy Hands Quilts

Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Finish is a king size Brick Cottage Lane {2} quilt.  I made this quilt top last summer, and it's finally finished!


Some of you saw this last week, but it's the only thing I have ready to share today.  My other sewing this week was my upcoming pattern, and it's not quite ready to share.

And here it is on a full size bed, so the overhang won't be this much on a queen or king.


The quilting is an ...
