A Friday Finish – YEAH!!!

Shakespeare in the Park

I am very excited to be finished my “Shakespeare in the Park“!  It’s a pattern by Judy Martin in her book “The Creative Pattern Book.”  This pattern was frustrating.  I found the directions often did not make sense to me.  And, of course, I made it bigger, so then I had to figure out how many extra blocks to make. Adding the extra border was easy to do! In the end, I’m glad I persevered.  I did a scrappy binding. My husband was not too sure about it, but when it was finished, he said that it was the perfect binding!  🙂  I love this quilt – now that it is finished!


Pink Snail’s Trail

A flimsy is completed.  Ready for sandwiching and quilting. A few posts ago, I showed 2 lay-outs for a snail’s trail (or monkey wrench) quilt.  Most everyone commented that I should do this layout and I’m glad I did!  I think it will be fun to quilt this one!


Now that I’ve posted the picture, I realize that I still need to add a border.

  2. Shakespeare in the Park is beautiful! I’m sorry the pattern was frustrating, though. I hate when that happens. Looks like it was worth it!


  3. Looks wonderful Gail! I like the pink snails tail too – you made the right choice (in my opinion!)


  4. Hi Gail,
    Both quilts are lovely, and a little similar. I love the colors in Shakespeare – it is slightly a green hue? Great job! ~smile~
