It seems like forever since I have been able to show off a finish. So much of my sewing lately has been for Blog Hops or pattern testing that I’ve only been able to share sneak peeks!
Today is different! I have a quilt top finished.
A few months back I won a sweet bundle of fabrics and a new Quilting Book, . For the life of me, I can not find the name of the blog or the person who has such a fun giveaway. I can only think that I filed the note somewhere when I was re-organizing my sewing space last month. I also filed my favourite clippers and probably a few things I haven’t needed. I can only hope they are together. 🥴. Rather embarrassing, don’t you think? I’m so happy to update this post. I received a comment from Mari Heidt at The Academic Quilter. She is the wonderful woman I won this sweet fabric and book from. So thank you Mari for my treasure!
I started the blocks back when the Covid19 virus was becoming a much talked about issue and finished them when we first started in lockdown. I used the fabrics I won and some scraps from my bins that worked with the fabric colours.
I had found the Vortex Pattern on the Wilmington Prints website just after I finished Glacier Ice for the Winter Blues Blog Hop which can be found Here. I seemed to have been on a log cabin binge!
Today I finally finished piecing the top.
The size is 60” x 70” so I will make a decision about adding borders, or not when I am ready to start quilting this top. For now it has been added to the To Be Quilted pile. I really need to get to Kelowna to pick up my batting so I can make that pile disappear!
For now I can only say I’m loving this flimsy. The fabrics are so sweet and I only had to add a few bits from my scrap bins to finish it.
I’d like to say thank you to the blogger who had such a sweet giveaway. If only I could remember where my note is. 🥴. One of my next starts will be a pattern I found in the book that was part of the prize package.
Thanks for stopping by! I love reading your comments and do reply so feel free! 😄 Carol
