Welcome all you quilty people to TGIFF!
First off, I want to share what I have been working on. In July, I spent quite a bit of time concentrating on cleaning up my sewing room and fabric stash . Too many items no longer fit into my fabric closet so I was faced with some "What should I do with this?" moments.
One of the items was this Modern Neutrals layercake and backing that has been kicking around for quite some time. I have been holding on to these thinking I would come across the perfect pattern. I quickly realized that using the Layers of Charm pattern by the Fat Quarter Shop would work beautifully for this collection.
At first, I was going to use a gray solid from my stash....
But then I found this wonderful pumpkin orange and I had just enough for what I needed!
I am so glad I went with it rather than the gray.
I love that this pattern keeps the pieces large so you can really enjoy the prints. This is the second quilt I have made with this pattern. The first quilt I used the Mimosa collection by Windham Fabrics.
I kept the quilting simple. Swirls in the background and spent a wee bit more time putting something special in the solid bits.
I don't often have backings that match the fabric collection in the top.
I really planned ahead for this one!
So now it is time to share your Friday finish. This TGIFF hostess and the TGIFF coordinator both had busy weeks and well, what can I say. We just didn't get a chance to touch base. The good news is there are two places to link up your finish this week!
Once you link your finish up here, hop over to the TGIFF site and link up there as well. And remember to visit some of the quilters that link up their finishes.
It is a great way to be inspired and maybe make a new friend! :)
