Happy Friday!

It is Friday, and I finally have a finished quilt to show off!! Barely made my “this week” cutoff…but I DID make it!

I know I say this every time I finish a quilt, but I love this one! I’ve been dying to try out this block style since I saw them all over flickr, but I was kind of afraid it would be difficult from the comments on said flickr pictures. But, I figured out how to strip piece them,and I happened to have a little stack of fat quarters that just screamed USE ME, USE ME! By the way, this entire quilt was made from stash. So proud of myself!

At first, I thought about using a bright pink or orange solid, but settled on the lighter pink (Kona Carnation) for a couple reasons: so that the brights would stand out better, and so that the quilt wouldn’t be so bright it hurt your eyes!

I have serious issues photographing orange fabric. For some reason, the entire picture ends up tinted orange. Any suggestions?

Anyways, this is the back. A wavy stripe print from Amy Butler’s Midwest Modern, with strips of a cute little orange flower print. The orange print is also the binding, which frames the front very nicely.

There’s a less orange-washed picture of the backing, and a better shot of the binding :)

This was the last quilt I quilted on my old machine, and of course this one was a little larger than what I’ve done lately(52”x60”), so the next one was much much easier! I quilted all over loopys (my favorite!).

This one is listed in the shop.

Ooh and guess what? I have another finish to show you on Monday! Have a fabulous weekend!
