A Finish!

Yay! I finally have a finish! And yes, it's the ATBP quilt. This was the first time it stopped raining and was slightly less windy in about 5 days, so I just took advantage of that. Not the best pictures, but who really cares?

 I seriously LOVE this backing!! And I used Aurifil thread to quilt it. It's one of their "reactive" colors, so no chlorine bleach (as if). After all the breakage from the 50 wt thread, I used a 40 wt and I must admit that I've had a much more pleasant experience with the heavier thread. And the color matches perfectly!! Now to up my game in FMQ and we'll be good.

Seriously with my camera and the colors! The middle picture is the most accurate. This quilt finished at 72"x72". Just great for a lap quilt! Now on to other piles of beautiful fabric just waiting to be sliced, diced, and put back together.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Just gorgeous! I absolutely love the prints in this collection. I've been trying so hard to not buy any for lack of a project but this is seriously making me want to go out and get some! I have a few of the prints from her last line that i adore and still haven't found the perfect project for them! Do i really need a perfect project? Don't answer that!!
    Beautiful finish Jenn!

  2. Wow, looks awesome! That top picture is so great!
