Flaunting a Friday Finish

I'm tooting my own horn with this Friday Finish.  You may remember my posts about the 2015-2016 mystery quilt-along hosted by Cheryl @ Meadow Mist Designs.  I finished the quilt top here back in January, and the deadline to submit finished quilts was this week.


It was difficult to decide on a quilting plan.  I watched Angela Walters: Dot to Dot Quilting (this is an affiliate link whereby I receive a small commission if you purchase the class).  I really enjoyed this class, and it gave me the confidence to try something new.  Although I need a lot more practice, I am very pleased with the results.  I love any quilting plan that doesn't require marking.



Ta da!!


Only one Kona used in this quilt:  Snow


Loop FMQ in the background and starburst quilting in the squares.



I found the backing fabric in my stash and pieced it with the last piece of the green fabric so I didn't have to match the pattern.


You can read about my journey making this quilt here:

July - Cutting
August - Flying Geese
September - Square in Square
October - Court House Steps
November - Piecing
December - Full and Half Blocks


This is one of my FAL 2016 goals.

  2. Your quilting is wonderful! I have taken that Craftsy class and have a particular quilt that I want to use that technique on, but I have been too nervous to try. You make me want to pull it out and just dive in! I should go watch it again as a refresher... LOL! Beautiful quilting and I love the colors! Well done!

  5. I love how you quilted this one! Great idea to add the green stripe to the back so you didn't have to match the seam. That backing fabric is just too good!
