12th Street, a new finish!

Nothing like starting the week off on a high!

12th Street is a newly released pattern available from Brenda and Pink Castle Fabrics,
if you've not or ordered from her before, I cannot recommend them highly enough
(as a very satisfied customer and for no other reason)

Well, it all started with a shout out from Brenda on Instagram for pattern testers,
never one to sit back and twiddle my thumbs, I jumped at the chance ...

so I made a selection of fabrics ...

can't beat a little bit of Amy Butler in your 'go to' stash

and started piecing

and I have to say, this is a really quick and easy pattern to make, definitely beginner friendly

I did take the time to make sure I didn't have the same fabrics in each block, and am pleased with how that little bit of obsessive behavior has worked out!

this was so quick to make, it was done in two sessions over a weekend,

and then I managed to slip it in between customer quilts on the frame

and gave it the 'Trudi' treatment with some Aurifil!

I also managed to dig out a great back from my stash!

that did make me giggle!

so that is the first finish for Q4 of the Finish Along!

Yayyy for being just a little obsessed!

and for reducing my FAL List too!

What a gorgeous pattern for a scrappy look and giving focus to a fabric line. Really like this one and you have a lovely valance of Amy butler fabrics in there.

Sarah said...

Balance not valance! Oops!

it's such a pretty thing!

Betty said...

lovely quilt, great colours and a pattern not too difficult: hey, I could make that!
I'm intrigued how you quilt: with a Juki on a frame. How does it move? what moves? What kind of frame?
Your quilting always looks fabulous; I thought you were a long arm quilter. So, yes, still intrigued.

Do love a little Pink Castle! And you totally needed another project *and* another quilt, just don't eat it all at once ;o)

Sheila said...

And I am another happy Pink Castle customer.
Another quick project!

Leanne said...

I love it, I love the fabrics you used and that it is a finish for your FAL list too.

Jane said...

Love this quilt pattern, will be popping over to buy it soon.

I'm intrigued by your quilting frame - how does it work? Does your sewing machine move along somehow?

You are so productive I'm in awe!

Nicky said...

Another one for me to look at next time!?

Look pretty! And I love the Trudi treatment!
