First Finish of 2017
It feels great to have something checked off my to do list!
I still consider myself a quilting newbie so I don’t have lots of UFO’s – instead I have lots of fabric with magazine clippings or handwritten patterns attached. I am participating in the 2017 All People Quilt UFO challenge , using the chart provided to list my project goals for 2017.
My youngest son lived in NYC for a few years and became friends with the sweetest young woman named Kim. She quickly became my friend too 🙂
Kim graduated from Northwestern University whose school colors are purple and white. When I saw the Jenny Doan Starburst tutorial I knew it was the perfect pattern for my V&Co Simply Colorful – Purple layer cake.
I love fabric with text prints. I used Inspirational Words by Whistler Studios for Windham fabrics for the quilt backing. Seeing the words ” Believe in Yourself”, “Smile, laugh, love”, ” Today is a new day” are so encouraging!
The quilt measures 59 x 59 inches. I’m still not confident enough with my FMQ abilities so I did straight line quilting with my walking foot.
Finished and mailed!! YAY!!
I’m linking up with Lindsey of Fort Worth Fabrics and her Fabric Frenzy Friday.
Thanks for stopping by!
