Before I get into our party, I have some exciting news!
October Sky won second place in the "Excellence for Original Modern Wallquilts" at Quilt Canada's National Juried Show. Holy crap! Actually, I said something a little more graphic, but it wouldn't be polite to repeat it. ;)
When I think back to my very first quilt, there's no way I ever thought one of my quilts could get accepted at a major show, let alone place. I'm still grinning like a fool about it. :D
Okay, enough about that. It's time to enjoy some finishes!
My quilt this week was barely finished in time.
I've been working on a couple of new projects, but neither are close to being finished so what's a TGIFF! host to do? And so begins our tale:
On Monday, we started planning a baby shower for a colleague and there was my answer. I pulled out one of my wee spy tops, which I sometimes make as a leader/ender project, and found that I just had to add the border!
Love that coral paired with the turtle fabric of the backing. Hopefully my colleague will love it too.
Finished quilt size: 42" by 54"
Phew! I always like a happy ending...
This fabulous quilty comic? Not me. It's fabric! Quilt Girl by Whistler Studios for Wyndham Fabrics. I found it at The Pickle Dish in Carleton Place for you local folks. You are welcome! :)
