Welcome to Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday! I'm Ruth and here on my blog there are lots of WIP's and not so many finishes, so it's probably not surprising that this is my first time hosting TGIFF. I am very excited to share a finish and celebrate all of yours at the link up below! Thanks to Fiona for giving me the opportunity to host the party today!
For some reason, as soon as I have pieced a quilt top, it gets done in my head, for at least a little while. Very rarely, do I go from finished quilt top to finished quilt. I made this sampler quilt top last year, for a class I was giving the Cork branch of the Irish Patchwork Society, and only now, almost a year later, is it finished!
I'm entering it into an upcoming exhibition called Fun, with the Modern Quilters Ireland group, due for submission on the 27th, so not only is it finished but it's finished early. Double celebrations!
I must admit, it took a tad longer that I expected to quilt it. About 4 days doing wiggly daisies, loops, 8's, E's and O's and Lori Kennedy inspired rows of houses!
What I really like about getting this one finished is, it has spurred me on to getting another one done!
These are some of the same blocks just with a different colour treatment and I am pondering how to quilt them. I don't want to do the same again so maybe an all over something or other? Any ideas?
But for the moment it's celebration time and time to bask in the glow of Friday Finishes!
