Ah, September and the first TGIFF of the month!
TGIFF is THANK GOODNESS IT”S FINISHED FRIDAY. A day where quilters around the world post their finishes … or their works in progress!
Some of you will be saying “but it’s still early on Thursday.” I know … but just think … in some parts of the world … Friday is almost over!
TGIFF is hosted by various bloggers … a different one each week. And it’s managed by a few very capable inventive quilters who send out reminders and pitch in when needed. If you want to host TGIFF, check out their website. (They will also help you to set up a Linky Party!)
My finish is this cute quilt … it was in a pile of “to be quilted” and I had even forgotten to put it on my “New Starts in 2020” for my PHD program. That’s OK … it’s done now, even if it didn’t make it to the list!
The quilt is basically the pattern from “5 ways to use ugly fabric” youtube video. I didn’t care for the look when the blocks were finished, so I added sashing and borders. The quilt finishes at 44″ x 59″ and the fabrics were not what I’d call ugly … but it did use up some fat quarters that were hanging around.
I used Hobbs 80/20 for the batting (it’s my FAVOURITE batting!) And it’s quilted with Aurifil #2515 – a light mauve / pink colour. The ruler template I used is from Langley Vacuum and Sewing and has silicone on the back. It does not slip … at all! The flowers were quilted with the template and then I stippled in between the flowers. Would you believe that this little quilt used up 5 bobbins? Ya, I don’t believe it either … but it did!
If you have a finish or a work in progress – be sure to link up!
One who sleeps under a quilt is covered by LOVE!
