TGIFF - Lone Star

Welcome to this week's edition of Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday.  TGIFF is the opportunity to share your finish from this week.  You can find out who is hosting each week by heading over to the TGIFF blog.

This is a another quilt that I was commissioned to make for The Secret Codes:  African Nova Scotian Quilts exhibition currently on display at the Dalhousie Art Gallery. 

I was asked to replicate a quilt from a photograph as the original quilter was deceased.  I followed the same colour scheme but choose brighter colours.  I used Kona Meringue (background), Lipstick, Water, Lemon, Chocolate, and Red.

The batting is my go-to Hobbs Heirloom Premium 80/20.  I quilted an all-over motif of stars and loops in a light yellow thread.

This quilt finishes 68-inches square and becomes part of the permanent collection of the Black Artists Network of Nova Scotia.

It's time for you to link up your finishes from this week.  We encourage you to visit a few of the link ups to get some inspiration and to share some quilty love.
