I just put the last few stitches on my 3rd finish for Finn's Challenge!!!
This is my Convergence Quilt! Pretty bright hey? I saw the fat quarters and liked them, thus that is what I used... Quite a few gals in my city group did this quilt a while back...probably 2 years now... If it weren't for Finn's Challenge, it would be sitting there for another year probably... 8-)
I had fun quilting it. On the suggestion of the gals, I did echo quilting on it... Not near perfect at all (still learning), but it is done and I like the effect you get when you look at it from a distance... As friend Kn says, "a man on a running horse wouldn't notice the boo-boos!" 8-)
On the back I used a hand-me-down left over fabric of Tinkerbells, hearts and butterflies...
Today I went to a local Quilt Show and had a lovely day with friends, quilts, vendors and their tables of goodies, and of course lunch. I also did not leave a paper trail for purchases, so I am safe from hubby scrutiny... Cash always works best! 8-) (Norman, mums the word!!!) 8-)
I "ooed and awed" about my purchase, and then I just went for it!!! I got a jelly roll of sorts of Batiks, a meter of a matching Batik (need to find another yet), and 3 charm packs that kept calling for me... 8-) The kit to make a small turtle wall-quilt was calling, but I ignored it... I have enough to keep me busy. 8-)
I did some thinking today, and realized how much I have done this year, even since I started blogging, and I am very proud of myself. 8-) (my quilting pals can't even believe the roll I am on...) So now, with 4 projects done and given away, and 3 UFOs completed for Finn's Challenge, it is time to play! 8-)
Time to play...?... Do I work with my half square triangles that I started a while back? Maybe play with my Christmas Charm Pack? Make the bag I plan for my Sunflower Charms? Hmmmmmm.....? Me thinks we shall think on this a while yet...
