Fresh Friday Finish - Fresh Sewing Day and Friday Finish

Last Fresh Sewing Day, I had mostly blocks to share and had hoped that March would be different.  Well, in a way, it is.  I barely have anything to show.  This seems strange since I feel like I've been working on a lot this month.  My projects just haven't quite gotten to the "finished" stage -  I have a bunch of mini's that are being quilted, a baby quilt that is almost done, and several beginnings to some big quilts.

Here is a new finish to share.  I completed this one just in the nick of time to be counted for my March Lazy Bum UFO challenge.  We recently had another Cyber Retreat, with the quilting stage being the focus.  So, I backed, basted and SID'd this quilt from my One Block Wonder Quilt Along prior to the retreat and stippled it during the retreat.
OBW finished

The ladies without kids enjoyed an entire weekend of cyber retreat quilting; I was jealous.  I got a baby sitter for a few hours and had just enough time to finish this one little quilt.  At least it is done!

March also had another long time UFO completed.  My quilt from the Beginner Quilt Along at Quilting Gallery.

Beginner Quilt Along - finally finished

I might be running out of UFO's.  I guess I will have to create some new ones.

And last but not least, my entry (and 3rd place win) for the Pantone Quilt Challenge

Monet Inspired wall quilt

I was so excited to be a part of the challenge and had so much fun making this quilt.  If you want to make one yourself, check out my tutorial HERE and have a Monet moment of your own!

Thanks for reading,

  11. Is that the VVG starry night fabric? It's come out as a stunning quilt top! I'm yhinking about using the layering idea to creat identical sails in s pinwheel block , but don't think I'd have the patience to go so many hexies, but yours does look stunning ! Will you keep this one? The yellow works really well! ( and congrats on finishing the pink, and double congrats on the win for London!)

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
