Welcome to TGIFF – Thank Goodness It’s Finished Friday! This is an international group so the party begins Thursday at 6 pm EDT and ends at Midnight Saturday, so you have plenty of time to link up a finish. If you want to know more about this, you can read all about TGIFF here. The link-up for this week is at the bottom of my page.
I am so pleased to present this quilt top – finished on my retreat almost a month ago. The pattern, The Planview Quilt is by Yvonne Fuchs of Quilting Jetgirl. It was a perfect retreat project. The above picture is from the pattern pages, where you are given a place to attach your colors so you can see them as you are working. This was incredibly helpful.
I hate to admit, but for all the careful checking I did, I had to redo a few blocks. My distracted mind confused B and BG somehow…but I was fortunate that I had enough fabric. This is a representation of the colors I had in Electric Quilt. I will often redraw a pattern just so I can do an audition of the fabrics. In my rendition I used 9 patches, so I have to decide if someday I want to try what may be an easier approach if you don’t mind blocks set on point – I don’t. I am always fascinated how many ways there are to make a quilt!
I love this little baby quilt. I was really looking forward to quilting it. It was my OMG to get this done and I will link to Elm Street Quilts.
However, fate intervened and this is my current world view. That is a surgically repaired broken ankle – 3 bones broken – with plates and screws holding it together. I did this Friday the 22nd, and will not be putting weight on it for 6 weeks. This will be challenging but the can do attitude we get from finishing a quilt that gives us trouble is what I am concentrating on. I have one other post up my
sleeve cast, but then I may be pretty quiet while I summon my inner dancer and learn to hop on one foot up stairs!
Now for the fun!
Reminder: If you have tips and tutorials, the party is still going on until the end of the month. There is a challenge to get something out there, so there are charm packs for some lucky winners. You can find out more about it here.
Now it is your turn to link up your finish for TGIFF. Please link up finished quilts or sewing projects. If you aren’t ready for this week, the party happens every Thursday- Saturday!
