I have a quilt finish!!
It’s not a fancy quilt…but it’s done and I like it.
This all started when I went to a garage sale in 2016. A former manager at a quilt shop had a garage sale. It was an awesome sale but I got there shortly after it started and no one was there and nothing was left. The owner let early sales happen. UGH. Had I known I’d have tried to go earlier.
I ended up buying these things from the sale and these are the project I worked on last week when my internet was out.
This was a UFO….the bag to the lower left made this quilt. This is what the blocks looked like. Apparently this was an Atkinson Designs Quilt…or at least that is what a couple blog readers told me after I talked about the garage sale originally.
There was a breeze as I was trying to take pictures but they turned out okay.
This was an easy quilt to put together as the blocks were already sewn. I sewed them together one night after supper. The blocks finish at 14 1/2″ square and are in a 5 x 6 setting.
I have graduation and wedding presents to get to this year and this one will be gifted.
I tried to snap a couple pictures of the edge to edge quilting design I used….This is a favorite of mine.
It’s a echoed leaf with a swirl in the center. I’ve done it enough that it’s an easy pattern for me to do now…It’s definitely an “in my comfort zone” motif.
I used a fun teapot fabric that Mary Jo gifted to me. I think the date on the selvage was 1994. It a Mary Engelbreit fabric. I think it’s busyness is fun with the front.
I used a yellow/gold thread on the top and and variegated yellow thread on the back.
The border was all the way scrappy. I’ve been trying to use anything up that I can and the scrap buckets are overflowing so scrappy it was.
It feels good to have it finished.
The day after this one was done, I grabbed another bag of those leftovers and got busy working on it. I’ll show you that quilt in tonight’s blog post.
…and of course a Rosie picture…
I like tonight’s quilt better…Stop back to see it.
