New Wave Finish

I'm very happy to share my first finish of 2015!  I finished sewing the binding on last night and braved the super cold temperature outside to snap some pictures when I got home today.



The pattern is by Elizabeth Hartman.  This is a lap quilt and it finishes at 50" x 55".  I used fabrics from an older Lotta Jansdotter collection - Glimma.  The colours are just gorgeous and the pattern is perfect for showing off those beautiful prints.



For the quilting, I started by echoing the seams about 1/4" on either side.  On some of the rows, I quilted swirls and on the other rows, I quilted some dot to dot designs.  The ladies at the Montreal Modern Quilt Guild were awesome at providing me with ideas for the quilting.  A special Thank You to Francine!  :-)



For the binding, I wanted something simple so chose a Kona grey (not sure the exact shade though).



On the back, I used a Windham word print and a column of leftover blocks.  I absolutely love the back!


This little quilt is now ready for a wash and dry.  Once it's nice and crinkly from the dryer, I will deliver it to my friend Liane.  Hopefully, New Wave will keep her warm and wrapped up in love while she fights this damn cancer.

Will be linking at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday and at TGIFF hosted by Michelle at From Bolt to Beauty this week.

And this is the first finish on my 2015 Q1 FAL list!  Yay!

  3. Tu as été courageuse de prendre des photos hier, on gelait ! Très réussi, avec le blanc de la neige et le orangé de la brique. C'est une très bonne idée l'alternance des motifs de piquage dans les bandes, ça fait un bel effet.

  4. This is a beautiful finish! I've always liked this pattern by Hartman. Good luck to Liane--I love how quilts can always surround a person with love, and I think love is so important when you're fighting something as big as cancer.
