It was a terrific feeling to finish this quilt. I wanted it ready for our quilt show, in the middle of October and it was. It was part of my goals for this quarter for the 2017FALQ4; you can see them all here. We had a family death and so I was unable to be at the show, but was out of the country. In my hurry to get things done and delivered to friends, I forgot to take pictures of this quilt. As I have a quilt made of these fabrics on my bed, I felt as though this deserved to be in someone’s home that loved it. It found a buyer a the show – I was thrilled.
The quilting was pretty intense for me. It was all straight line, and I used a darker thread in the green leaf and a light thread in the the background. I loved the effect and was pleased that I stuck with it.
Here’s the way we label our quilts at the show We get to write a little description to tell people about the quilt. Of course we could go on forever, but we are limited to 50 words or so.
This pictures shows my label. I had this fantastic aboriginal print, that was just lovely for the background. I often do my labels the same way, framing them, and you can see more about that here.
Thanks to my quilting friend, Sandra at MMM! Quilts for designing a great quilt and hosting a fun QAL.
Here’s how the end of the year list is looking:
2017FAL4Q List: 3 to go!!!!
Free Fall Quilt Along
3. Sew Together bags
4. Petal Play Loon
5. Organized sewing room
All people quilt UFOs (so 7 out of 12 are done!!)
1. Grey batik flying geese
2. Petal Play Loon
3. Raw Edge Tree Runner
4. Row by Row #3 (is this for real, one more??)

Here’s hoping for a stellar finish – I think the Sew Together Bags will be done as well. An organizer is coming Tuesday to help with #5 the Sewing room, as the Raw Edge Tree Runner and the others just depend if I get any momentum. I really didn’t expect the move to last so long or the disruptions to be so pervasive but the are!
