Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday!

Pull up a chair and join me for a cup of tea as we kick off this week's Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday (TGIFF)! If this is your first time visiting a TGIFF event, it's a linky party where someone can link a Finished project from the past week!


This week I am sharing my finished Mix & Mingle quilt which I made for my daughter's first Twin Bed. If you listen closely you can hear the howling wind while it blows around our freshly acquired 2 feet of snow. It only takes a peek out of the window and I am reminded that I am not in Texas anymore! Consequently when I made this quilt, I knew that I wanted to use wool batting for the first first.


My friend Richy from Spazzycat Designs made this pattern for the Moda Bake Shop and I was thrilled when he offered to use his short arm quilting machine to do the top stitching. 

I just got it back last week and spent the week adding a solid purple binding. My favorite part about working on this project was using K Buckley's perfect circle templates to make my appliqué circles, it was a dream for a new-to-appliqué person like me!


Thank you for stopping by and visiting my quilt! Won't you consider linking up a finish of your own and/or visit a link or two below?

  4. Oh that is very pretty - 2 ft of snow eh? Good excuse to stay inside and keep quilting?

  5. That looks fabulous, Shanna. I love how the wool makes the design pop on the quilting and I'll bet it will be warm too.
