Friday Finish - ALYOF Goal Achieved!

Yeah for achieving another ALYOF goal!!  My October goal was to finish my Gees Bend quilt.  I showcased my progress here.  The "accountability" of participating in ALYOF has given me the motivation to finish projects.


Here is my version of Debby Kratovil's pattern.


First time attempting wavy/organic lines on my longarm.  Some are better than others, but I am happy.



I used the following Kona colours:

Poppy - Black - Corn Yellow - Jamaica - Turquoise
Purple - Yarrow - Grass Green - Pomegranate


I quilted with red thread and used a purple tone-on-tone for the backing.



This will be a quilt that I will keep for myself.

  1. How awesome that the ALYOF link up is helping you meet goals. I struggle with liking organic / wavy lines when I use my longarm, and this makes me think I should practice on them myself some more. Lovely finish and hooray for making something to keep!

  11. Definitely hang onto this one. A group of ladies in my guild made some Gee's Bend inspired quilts and they were beautifully coloured - love the use of colour and improv!

  12. And what a lovely finish it is! I love that you quilted w/red thread. I like the idea of using contrasting thread colors for quilting. Kudos!

  13. Love this quilt Anja, simply everything about it! and yay for finishes! I am definite going to stat back with ALYOF in January, it helped me so much with motivation and connection with my bloggy community. I thought a no rules year would be good, but I must say I have felt a bit removed from it all. e.g seeing this post is nearly 2 weeks old! Agh! Great work all around!
