Hello, and welcome to TGIFF for July 26. It seems like forever since I’ve had a finish–at least of such a long time UFO (unfinished object). I confess, playing with pretty fabric is my favourite activity meaning more quilts seem to get started than finished.
This was a bee quilt from 2014 (yikes) . I set the blocks on point to make best use of the 13 blocks I ended up with (one person sent me two). The label is pieced into the backing.
For the quilting, I used Aurifil 2021 In the top and Aurifil aluminum in the bobbin. The free motion quilting is mostly dot to dot–some curved lines, some straight–in the blocks, ribbon candy in the sashing, and loopy meander in the setting triangles. Batting is Hobbs bleached white, the first time I’ve tried that kind. It’s slightly thinner than Warm and White in my opinion but nicely soft.
This was also a finish on my Q3 finish-a-long list.
Now it’s your turn! Please share your finish and hop around to visit a few others and leave a nice comment, because every finish deserves a celebration!
