Yes, I have finished it! This is my first leaders and enders project, the little 3.5″ units pieced as I put together various other projects. Did I like it? Well…it did make for very neat, tailless piecing on the other tops. I liked that a lot. It was hard to train myself to do it religiously, and I could only go so far with it and still concentrate on the other work. But, yes, I will do it again, with a simpler project of mindless squares. I made this quilt to use the backing fabric in my stash (French Country Journal by Michael Miller). I’d been saving it for a while, and it is just too pretty to cut. And there will always be more fabric. So I decided to use it, and designed this quilt. It’s inspired by a quilt in Scraps, Inc. I haven’t seen the book, but I liked a project that Pam made, so I designed this in EQ7 to resemble a trellis. I used all the yellow, gold,and blue 3.5″ squares in my bin, and sewed 2″ white squares to two corners to create the little lozenges. This was an odd shape. I bought fabric at Missouri Quilt Company for borders, but decided against them. I added another two rows at the bottom, removed the side and corner setting triangles, and substituted the floral fabric (potential border fabric). This finishes it a bit without being heavy. I like it. It’s 51″ x 69″ I quilted it all with yellow Sulky on top and white Bottom Line on the back. Most of it is done in an orange peel motif [probably never again after all the terrible puns (redundant?) on Twitter!]. Those are butterflies in the centers of some of the white areas. I would do them differently another time, but they are not bad. This doesn’t have a purpose yet. It may go into my Etsy shop, except that I really like it a lot. But I only need so many quilts. Hope you had a finish this week. I’m linking up with Finish it up Friday and WIPs Be Gone.
