TGIFF - Nova Scotia Sea

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.

My finish this week is a quilt top I finished in December 2021.  I made the Storm at Sea pattern using a signature fabric line by Sherry @ Powered by Quilting -- Calm Lagoon from Island Batik.

As this quilt will be hanging in a concurrent quilt show at Quilt Canada 2023 being held in my city next week, I have named it Nova Scotia Sea.  Naming quilts is hard, but this one was easy.

Quilts for the show had to be delivered to my friend Brenda so I took advantage of a photo shoot at her house as she has many canoes on her property.

I quilted wavy organic lines using a blue variegated thread by Connecting Threads.  The batting is Hobbs Heirloom Premium 80/20.

I'm hoping this will give me some motivation to finish up my ever-growing pile of quilt tops.

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.

  5. Hi Anja, your quilt will be lovely at Quilt Canada. I hope that you'll be able to attend! Good luck with the rest of your quilting and please consider linking up to Free Motion Mavericks. Take care.

  6. Not only does the red canoe provide the perfect contrasting background for your Storm at Sea quilt, but it could it reflects the theme.

  7. Wonderful finish, Anja! I think the wavy lines are perfect and I do hope it inspires you to attack the tops!
