Friday Finish - Notched

Today's finish is the last project of my Finish Along Q3 goals.  I've played along successfully for three quarters this year.  It's a great way to stay focused on WIPs.

I started piecing Notched back here in March, and I had a finished top here in April.  And now a finished baby quilt measuring 36-inches square.


I procrastinated so long in quilting this because I didn't know how to quilt it.  I didn't want the quilting to detract from the awesome pattern.  Dena @ No Frickin' Blog Yet (will you just create a blog already) suggested diagonal quilting.  Success!


This is a great pattern by Yvonne @ Quilting Jetgirl.  You can find her tutorial here.


I found this backing at my LQS.  I'm so glad I bought it in a few colours.


I'm slowly making my way through many WIPs.  I'm going to get on top of them someday...but not this weekend.  I'm off to a wedding out of town on Saturday, and then walking/running a quarter marathon (10.5K) race on Sunday.  Still debating whether my mind and my body are both ready for my first 10K.

That is a great pattern. Yvonne would be thrilled to see it made up in shades of blue. The diagonal lines are just right.
Good luck with the 10 km!

Enjoy your busy weekend! Love this quilt! Maybe it's that blue is my favorite color or maybe it's the perfect combination of blues, but it really is fabulous. Those blues really sing!
