My Friday Finish : )

Woodgrain quilting design

 Nothing like a little motivation of a deadline (even a self imposed one) to get my quilting mojo going!

I had a quilt top I finished about a month ago, even had the backing pieced and ready to go. I don't know why I procrastinate so long, in one afternoon I was able to load it on my quilt frame AND get it quilted. I cut out the binding before I went to bed and I don't think it took more than an hour to make the binding and sew it on.

So HAPPY DAY here, a quilt top quilted this week and a finish too....

I call this one my "Ugly" quilt. A bunch of ugly batiks that I was going to donate til I decided to just make a "quick" quilt with them to donate someplace. Well my teen didn't think it was ugly at all, he love it. Guess it's already found it's home.

Too breezy today to get a good photo so I had to settle for laying it out on the grass, makes the edges look wavy but really they're not!

62 x 85"  Big enough for his bed.

And for the back...
Musical fabric chosen with a particular teen in mind

And I got a little time in yesterday too with my red swap blocks UFO, I'm adding triangles or sashing to each block to make them 9" so the original 6" blocks will stretch far enough to make a quilt without having to make a bunch more blocks.

Do you see those top 3 blocks? I had extra bowtie blocks so I took a few apart and resewed then in a different layout. The right one is the original, the other two the re-arranged ones. I have 2 each of all the other blocks and had 8 bowtie blocks. 

Linking up with TGIFF and I'll be checking out what yummy things others have finished.
