Finish! Kitchen Sink Scrap Quilt

Happy Finish News!  Wooo-hoo!

I have a fully complete quilt to share.  I started this as a way to use scraps to make the back of a quilt and too many people protested and said that it was worthy of being it's own quilt.  I caved and promoted it to being a top.

It's bright, fresh, fun and used up all kinds of leftover bits.

Here is a close up showing the quilting.  I did a simple loop-dee-loo that stitched up super quick and is whimsical and bouncy.

 In other news-- I splurged on a photography frame to hang quilts on to get better photos.  One slight problem right now--  I have limited daylight hours that I'm not at work and then Mother Nature has made those times windy and/or rainy!  I tried to take pictures outside, but it was way too windy.  Here's a picture showing the frame. I ended up setting up on my covered front porch and had a little bit of wind protection.

This quilt is one of my Q4 Finish-A-Long projects.  And I will be donating it to the Dane County Foster Program on behalf of the Mad City Quilt Guild.

  1. It turned out great! So bright and cheerful. I'm glad you promoted it to a top.

  2. What bright and fun quilt! Great use of scraps. I know how you feel about the shorter daylight this time of year. I end up saving all my picture taking for the weekend when I'm off work!

  3. A fun way to use up your scraps! Looks great!

  4. It was too happy not to be on a front. So cute! It looks about 60 inches, which is a nice manageable size. I'm with Monona Quilters and love making Project Linus quilts.

  5. It worked up great! Such happy bright colors. My scraps are a bit more somber, but I have been using them.

  6. Fun finish - Mother Nature and I are having the same challenge with sunlight. :D

    On behalf of the global hosts of the Finish A Long, thank you for participating!
