Welcome to TGIFF for May 12, 2017! Today I am sharing what is my oldest work-in-progress no longer. Thanks so much to the Carmine group, Simply Solids bee. This was an all-Canadian hive, organized by Erin at Sew at Home Mummy. The mandate was modern design, using all solids fabrics. Blocks made in 2013, handquilted block-by-block over the last 3 years, and assembled in 2017. Finished size 56″ square. Batting is Warm and Natural, prewashed.
From top left, the makers are:
1. Janet, Caribou Crossing Chronicles (flickr) 2. Patti, Retired to Quilt (flickr, instagram) 3. Me 4. Oops, I can’t figure this one out. Maybe another one I made since I’m pretty sure all my bee mates are accounted for.
5. Carla, Grace and Favour (flickr) 6. Chelsea (also #11) 7. Sheila Bonnett (flickr, instagram) 8. ApplePiePatchwork (flickr, instagram) (second block after Canada Post lost the first one–which arrived 6 months later)
I might like the back just as much. To counteract the crispness of the solids on the front, I selected gorgeous large scale prints (with Anna Maria Horner very well represented) which we all buy but are so difficult to use in small pieces.
And maybe just one detail shot showing the quilting.
Are you ready to share your finish?–whether it is a quilt, knitted hat, garment, or other project you are busting your buttons to show the world. When you add your link, I would appreciate if you leave your name or blogname and the title of your project, such as “Lisa – Modern Butterfly Quilt”.
Please do hop around and visit a few other links and leave a comment, because every finish deserves a celebration!
