A Finish I Can Share

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.

Poor lighting today so the photo isn’t the best.

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.

So many great patterns!

Thanks for stopping by! I love reading your comments and do reply so feel free! 😄 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. I’m not usually a pastel lover, but this quilt is so pretty and calming. I think the pattern uses those fabrics so well. I’m waiting on batting too, although I can frankenbat some pieces for my smaller quilts. It’s on my list to do, so maybe I’ll get that done this week!

    1. It’s not the best picture of the fabrics. There are some great colours so it’s not quite as pastel as the photos imply. It is a pleasing palette though. Hope your batting gets there soon. Mine has been waiting for pickup since the shutdown started!

  2. Hi Carol! What a beauty. How nice, also, that you found a use for the bundle right away. Sometimes we win or buy something without a purpose and then . . . well, it sits waiting for the perfect use. I’ve never made a vortex quilt but it looks like I should! It’s a gorgeous quilt top. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Thank you Roseanne. I was happy to get this top done with the fabrics in less than a year! It’s all about stash busting! I fell in love with the pattern when I saw it. It does make a pretty quilt! I think log cabins have me hooked right now. Have a great day. 😁 Carol


  3. Hi Carol! I’m pretty sure you got those from me, and I’m really happy to see them made up into such a lovely quilt top! It turned out quite nice and really shows off the fabrics well. Hope to see what your next project is!

    1. Yaaay! Thank you for letting me know it was you! I thought the name was Mari but I couldn’t remember your last name or your blog. Now I can add it to my post. Isn’t it just the sweetest most perfect fabric for this quilt? Thank you again for the sweet prize! ❤️ Carol
