Hello and welcome to my blog for Thank Goodness it’s Finally Finished!
This week, I can proudly share the quilt I made for my niece. Pink of course, and as she is just about 14, not a minute too soon (as I said to my sister, I was afraid if I waited too long she would go Goth or something). But the grey, aqua, and yellows, are chosen to provide a more mature palette. The pattern is Refracted by Melissa at Happy Quilting, which just seemed to be the epitome of modern to me when I first saw it.
I had a lot of fun quilting the daisies in the sashing. The blocks are echo quilted, plus I added an inspirational or strong word in each, such as super, brave, intrepid, fearless, excel, dream, dance, laugh, grace, believe, vibrant, achieve.
I also quilted this quilt in two halves and then pieced it together, definitely a good technique depending on how you plan to quilt it. With the simplicity of this quilting, I probably didn’t need to split the top, but I wanted to try the process. Finished size about 66″ x 80 “.
Now, it’s time to see what you have finished up this week! Please link up your quilty/sewing finishes (note that the thumbnails are shown on a separate page), then hop around to three or four other people to say hi!
Thanks again for joining me for TGIFF!
