finally finished











This quilt was probably one of my oldest unfinished projects. It was lurking in the depths of the wardrobe for ages and resurfaced after the "big move". I started it way back in 2007 following a Kaffe class and now it's finally finished! I used Kaffe's 'snowball' pattern, he's made a few versions thru'out his many books. I had it professionally quilted in an all-over scroll pattern. Finished quilt measures approx. 63" x 52". All bound now & off to it's new home . . .

Linking up this week to 'moving it forward' here at emsscrapbag

  1. Looks good, pink was the perfect colour for the binding. How many more unfinished wips do you have hidden away?

    Nice use of contrast.

  5. Well done for finishing the Kaffe quilt. It must have been a lovely discovery for you when you were emptying cupboards and drawers ready for The Move. Hope you have settled into your new home.

  10. Awesome finish. It's great to get some of those old projects done, and makes some of the newer projects a little bit more guilt free!

  12. What a beautiful regular tiling/snowball blended with a row quilt. I'm so glad you finished this. Isn't it wonderful when an older set of fabric really looks great? Congratulations.
