TGIFF - Freefall Finish

I recently shared my (late) progress on the Freefall Spring QAL hosted by Sandra @ Musings of a Menopausal Melon.  I was able to finish the quilt top over three days at the end of December -- here, here, and here.

And now it's finally finished!!  Just under the two-year old mark.  Whew.  And it was a dreary, gray day, which doesn't work well for decent photos.

Just a quick all-over stipple in variegated thread for a quick finish.

And in my efforts to reduce my scraps, I used the leftover fabric to piece the backing.

This is my first finish of my Finish Along Q1 goals.

If you have a finish this week, consider sharing it at:

  1. The first photo with the leaves on the ground does seem rather appropriate, though. Congratulations on the finish!!

  2. Skies may be dull and dreary but your quilt is anything but.

  3. Something about this design really appeals to me. Such intricate piecing scares me though.

  4. Beautiful finish. I’ll trade you places, I’ll take gray and dull and you can have my deep freeze, 😂😂😂

  5. Really, what a beautiful quilt! It was worth the wait!

  6. Oh, this turned out to be so pretty! I love the batiks and the dark green leaf. Reminds that I never finished mine - oops!

  7. Look at you, all rocking the stipple design and busting out a finish (*and it's still January*)! And kudos for busting those scraps on the back. : )

  8. A finish!! Woot! Makes me think of a beautiful fall day. I'm ignoring those small patches of snow in the background :)

  9. Hi Anja, Thanks so much for taking the time to link up to Free Motion Mavericks last week. I really appreciate the support. Hope to see you there again! It really is a lovely quilt :-)

  10. Congrats on a very nice finish! I love pieced backings - I’ve been trying to use up my stash and piecing a back with fat quarters that I don’t love anymore is the perfect way to do that.
