Whoop, Whoop Friday 4/21/17


I will be joining SARAH and the gang in celebrating some finishes.  It doesn't have to be a finish, just something you are happy to have accomplished on your to-do list - and we all have a long one of those.


This was one of my Let's Book It projects over a year ago and it sat waiting for the final borders.  Those got done finally and I sent it out for long arming.  Then it took a while to stitch that binding - I don't make a lot of big quilts.


This pattern is from the book "Beyond Neutrals" and was an attempt to use up that abundance of browns.  A lot of skinny strips put into a 3-bar braid for lovely look.  I had Barb do a tight meander because of those skinnies and I love the affect.


And I finished off the confetti baby quilt.  Organic line quilting just gives texture and comfy.


I joined three 1/2 yard pieces of 'Good Neighboors' for the back - that is now used up.  And a scrappy border of some of the solids that were left from the front.  This is in the washer right now and then a pop into the dryer.

Today is to be another rainy day, so I plan to catch up on all those block releases for my QALs and dream of sunshine and warm weather.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  8. Those are two great quilts...so different, and yet, both are so pleasing to the eye and calming. I like the organic line quilting. Trying to decide how to quilt the elephant baby quilt, and I have something like that in mind. Haven't made up my mind yet.
