I'm excited to share that I have a Friday Finish!
The last stiches were worked on the binding on Wednesday night, and we took the photos Thursday night while there was still some light.
The pattern is Pow Wow from Cluck Cluck Sew. Most of the fabric was from my stash. I love how colourful it is. Some of the fabrics are favourites and I am happy that the quilt is going to someone I love who I know will really love the quilt.
In this picture you can see my beginner free motion quilting. This is the biggest quilt I've tried free motion quilting on so far. Im pretty happy with my progress although before I start fmq I always think I'll be able to do a better job than I actually able to.
My sewing machine is a lower to mid range Janome and doesn't have many bells and whistles. Sometimes I wish I had a better machine and I think I would be so much better at fmq if I did have one. It's not in the budget though and in all honesty I think I just have to put in the work and practice practice practice.
I'm liking the pink strip on the back here. So much more interesting than one fabric throughout.
This happy little quilt and I are taking a little trip in to Toronto today. We are going to the Royal Ontario Museum with my daughter and my Aunt. I'll be delivering the quilt to its recipient after that. She's been waiting for me to finish it for so long that she's given up hope.
Tomorrow I'm going to Quilt Canada with two of my quilting buddies. It will be our first time going to Quilt Canada. I'm very excited!
This is my second finish for the 2nd Quarter Finish Along. Linking up to TGIFF at Riddle and Whimsy and to Finish it up Friday at.Crazy Mom Quilts and here's my link to the original FAL post.
