My first Finish!

Yes, really!  my first finish of 2014, 
and actually, one I can tick off my FAL list too!

oh and if you are batik or fugly sensitive, 
you best look away now!


see I dug this fugly out of my stash for the back


I made this quilt way back in 2009 in a facebook QAL with Pat Sloan,
it was all about stash busting!


and now its been busted out of my UFO pile and done!


that's me off to a good start, don't ya think?

It's wonderful! I think if you replaced the strip sets and blues with modern fabrics, it would be a well loved pattern. It is so interesting how the choice of fabrics changes how we see things. I sure love your quilting, you must be loving the new machine.

Well done you. I know we are not meant to like batiks but having seen this quilt top in real life it is actually really pretty. Di x

Yay finishes!

Well done for finishing! I struggle so much more to get on and finish older projects, as my aesthetic has changed and I don't find them as satisfying, so you get extra kudos for ticking this one off.

I think one of the problems with batiks is the difficulty of using them with non batiks.Keeping them on their own can produce beautiful quilts as your quilt proves. Well done on the finish, and it's not even the end of January yet.

It didn't take long to get that one done did it? Bet you were doing a happy dance to have finished it.

Batiks are not my thing but it is beautifully pieced.

A finish is a finish, so celebrate it! I'm happy for you, T! It feels great, doesn't it?

Batiks are not my thing either yet I look at said fabric at the quilt shows (just been to Ardingly) & rather admire them … (except The Brown. Still can't admire The Brown) so mebe one day :-)
I reckon your UFO pile is going to become a thing of the past now you've got your fabalush longarm Trudi ;-)

I think you're slowly converting people to batiks...one quilter at a time ;o)
