TGIFF - Banner Year

Welcome to Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday, being hosted here in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada.

TGIFF is your opportunity to showcase your finishes from this week and to see what other great projects have been created.



This is Banner Year, a pattern by Andrea @ 3rd Story Workshop.  You can find Andrea's patterns here.  This is the lap-sized version.


I love this polka background.


I followed the pattern and made two-colour banners in rainbow colours.


Love this backing!!


Every time I take photos of quilts, the wind is blowing, and it's hard to get good photos.  Taking these photos, no wind whatsoever, not even a slight breeze.  I wanted the banners to "wave" in the wind.



This is one of my FAL 2018 Q2 goals.

Now it's time for you to link up your finishes.  Link up your blog post showing off your finished project using the linkup below.  Don't forget to visit a few blogs to spread some quilty love and encouragement.  Please include the TGIFF button or link in your blog post so your followers can also view all the great finishes.

The wavy quilting lines give the impression of the banners waving in the wind, even if your normally blustery maritime climate isn’t cooperating.
It too love the polka dots and that backing fabric.

The one time you want the wind...The quilt is beautiful, Anja, even if the wind wouldn't help the banners to fly :)

No finishes for me I just never have as much time to sew as I need to get things done! But this quilt is stunning! I also love the polka dots, and the bright colors. I had to laugh when you said every time you take photos of quilts the wind is blowing except the one time you want it to! It always blows where I live and I could totally see this happening to me as well. Congrats on a gorgeous finish!

Why is it the wind never cooperates? This is a beautiful finish, from the rainbow of flags to the wavy quilting. Congrats on your finish!
