It's a finish at least!

I finally got the #scrappytripalong quilt finished! I know, I know, it shouldn't take more than 2 weeks to sew binding down! But it did!



So whilst there was a break in the snow this morning, I waded out for a photo opportunity ...


I loved piecing this one, so quick ...


I loved all the fabric I put into it, but close up, well .... Lets just say the jury is still out on this one, I may even have to start an etsy shop to sell a few things, this one included!


The backing is Pure from Sweetwater for Moda ... I have a little left which is going into another project :)


And for the quilting simple swirls. Using superior rainbows and bottom line in the bobbin.

So there you have it a finish, and the first of my Finish Along list! Can we have a wooop!

There may also be a rumour I started something new, and I may have pulled fabric for something else new too this morning ... Oops! I better go catch up on the other stuff first!

Well done on a finish! Not sure it technically counts tho, cos you only just started it a couple weeks ago ;-P What are you starting now?!

Leanne said...

Come on, it is a lovely finished quilt. You could always give it to Siblings Together, and tick that off right away? But give it a few weeks to grow on you, you did use lovely fabrics.

Definitely a whoop!! I think it's a grower, and destined to used without fear of being spoilt!

Annabella said...

Wooop!! Oh have another one - woooooop!! I agree with Hadley - it's a grower and perhaps a keeper.

It is incredible from afar! Lynn Roddy Brown, queen of the scrap quilts, says if you don't like a mateial in your quilt, you just have not cut it small enough yet!

It is an amazing quilt!

Catherine said...

Whoop whoop-what a fantastic finish

Cindy said...

Well done, Miss T! Super finish! It feels great, doesn't it?

Nicky said...

Can't see what the problem is Trudi - maybe you need to take your eye out from the microscope and enjoy the wider view which is Monet-esque as Katy said I think! What would you do differently as I may be tempted yet...!?

Come on tell us what you are up to now secret squirrel!

What a lovely scrappy quilt, well done on the finish.

I love it. Did I read correctly that it's not a favorite and you are going to sell it??

Lynz said...

I kinda know where you're coming from with the not love. Let me say firstly that I LOVE yours. But I find scrap quilts a bit like some paintings - beautiful at a distance but a big ol' mess up close! I've just finished a scrappy trip myself and have surprised myself by not only using everything but the kitchen sink in it but also loving its randomness! I'm usually really careful over colour, value, pattern size and it was so refreshing to chuck it all together. I can't make up my mind if I'm going to advise putting yours somewhere prominent to see it loads OR packing it away and going back to look in a few weeks. But I'm rambling so maybe need to get myself a cuppa! I love your quilt, if you do decide to sell it you'll have no trouble!
