I’ve been on a roll finishing quilts! This is the latest, Show Off. It’s a free pattern from Quilted Twins.
You might remember that I had debated on adding the piano key border that the original pattern had. I decided to leave it off.
I cut this out several years ago and didn’t put a stitch into it. It just sat cut out waiting for the day.
The day finally came when Mary at Country Threads pulled the number for the Dirty Dozen August project and this was mine. I pulled it and started sewing.
As I was sewing I realized I had a wedding coming up and the gal is decorating Vintage Farmhouse style. I thought this might be okay to finish and gift to them.
I really debated about a quilting motif. I thought about straight lines but there is REALLY a lot of space that my line could end up curvy and noticable in so Kelli suggested a wave motif. PERFECT.
That’s what I ended up doing.
I wanted to really keep a clean look to it so I used white for the binding. It’s something I normally don’t do…but I needed to get the clean look.
Here is the backing…
All in all I’m pleased with it. I’m so happy that the project came up as a UFO and so happy that can be gifted for the wedding.
If you are looking for a quick project, this one is it for sure!! Really the blocks are already made so all that needs to be done is make sashing.
I started the Dirty Dozen with 12 projects. I only have one checked off the list…but I’m working on 2 more so with any luck, I’ll get those two done too.
Don’t forget a Rosie picture!!
I was so please to get notes from two different blog readers that this quilt is next on their list too. I hope they both have as much fun making their version as I had making mine. Happy sewing girls!!
