Well hello! So nice to see you, or if you are a new visitor...Welcome! I am so pleased to be hosting TGIFF! this week because I actually finished something! It is small something, but it still counts right?
This wee finish started off with a swap call. My sweet Maritime Modern Quilt Guild is swapping pillows with the Edmonton Modern Quilt Guild.
Can I tell you how fun it is to participate in these types of swaps? I
just love seeing what folks come up with.
Anywho, I knew right away that I was in the mood for some Paper Piecing and I just love the Block Rock'n Free PP Block Series that Julie did over at 627Handworks. But first things first was the fabric pull. I wanted text and solids and low and behold I opened my Kona box and found my May Kona Club Picks from Aimee at Candy Coated Quilts. Aimee and her husband have started a Kona Club for our MMQG members and their picks are just perfect! I cannot tell you what the text print is, completely forget, but for the back I went with some Essex Linen.
Icky Thump. I have had this pattern earmarked for quite some time, so glad to get at it! Here is one piece of puzzle. Sweet!
In other pillow finish news - I have somehow gotten myself into a little niche of making Flag pillows. I guess the Union Jacks and Canadian Pillows got folks ideas flowing. So this month I also finished two custom orders:
These flag pillow are fun to make!
So that's me for this TGIFF! Now it's time to see what YOU have been up to... Link up those fabulous finishes here and don't forget to tour the other finishes and spread the comment love!
Many thanks to M-R of Quilt Matters and Laura of Quokka Quilts for creating TGIFF! It certainly keeps me focused on getting those UFOs done!
Great Pillows, Adrienne. Love the quilting on the Acadian Flag!ReplyDelete
