TGIFF – Crayon Quilt

And, I am back hosting Thank Goodness It’s Finished Friday!

This quilt was made for me to learn more quilting skills. When I was taking a class in NH, one of the clerks picked out the fabric and pattern.

I used a pattern from this book and it was fun and easy. I like that I have the book in my stash and can use 3 yard combinations to make

So my plan was to learn to do a few new things. The first thing I learned was placing ribbon candy in the border.

Then I figured out a way to add the puzzle pattern by creating an irregular area that went across half the block. I would flip it to do the bottom half. You can see how it moves a bit around the diamond.

Then I added the 6 different animals in the center squares.

The back was one of the 3 yard, 108″ backs that I like to use for benefit quilts. This one is for one of the Hands2Hearts charities, that will be donated at the end of May. I am so pleased that this will make a young child happy.

I hope you have a finish to share. But, don’t worry, TGIFF happens every week, so if you aren’t ready to link up, there is next week, hosted by Laura at Slice of Pi Quilts. Also, there are hosting opportunities still this year, so if you are interested here’s the link –\
