TGIFF is here and I think I might Swoon!

All right, so I'm not super talented when it comes to original post titles!

I am super excited to be hosting the TGIFF linky party this week and for the occasion, I've been working day and night to get my Swoon all finished. (I haven't really worked all night, but did spend quite a bit of time on it over the last week.)

Unfortunately, the weather wasn't great and I didn't have any quilt holders on hand, but here are a couple of pictures.

The designer is obviously the wonderful Camille Roskelley and I used Lucy's Crab Shack to piece the blocks... Kona white as the background... And more Lucy's Crab Shack for the binding.

I quilted it with straight lines, about 1 1/4" apart, using painter's tape as my guide.

This finish has been in the works for a year people! I still can't believe she is finally done!

Have you finished anything recently? Wanna share? Go ahead and link up those wonderful finishes.  Be sure to tour the other finishes and spread the comment love far and wide!  Please include a link back to TGIFF (button in my sidebar).

Let's party!

It's been a while since my last post... I've been really busy quilting my Swoon!!

I'll be sewing the binding on tonight...

Come back later this week because I've got a couple of exciting things scheduled for Friday - my Swoon reveal AND I'm hosting this week's TGIFF linky! For more info on TGIFF, click the button in my sidebar.

WIP Wednesday: Quilting my Swoon!

I finished piecing my New Wave in Glimma quilt top yesterday! I love it and I'm super excited about quilting it. BUT I don't know what to use to back it or for the binding so until I find the perfect fabric, it'll have to wait...

Since I couldn't get started on quilting New Wave, I decided put my Swoon quilt on the sewing machine.

I'm quilting super simple, clean and crisp straight lines.

The lines are about 1 1/4" apart (the width of the painter's tape) and I'm using a technique I learned in Jacquie Gering's latest Craftsy class by using painter's tape as my guide. I think it'll take a while! :-)
