Friday Finishes

Well, at least the top is finished! Does it count that I have the backing ready for this quilt, as well as the binding?

The pattern for this quilt is in Spring 2013 Fons & Porter's Scrap Quilts magazine. The designer is Tony Jacobson and this is a very scrap and fat quarter-friendly pattern.

 
I had no intention of making this quilt and didn't even own the magazine, but then I saw Eileen working on this during the last Old Bags' Day Sew-In.

Anyway, I saw Eileen working on her quilt and thought it was really cute. I kept thinking about Eileen's quilt and finally just bought the magazine and started pulling fabric. I love how it turned out (except the outside border. I don't know what I was thinking when I was attaching those. Well, obviously I wasn't and I'm not changing it now. I'll just be sure to quilt the heck out of it and hide those misguided seams.)

Check out what other quilters are finishing up today.

I just think it is wonderful! Once you have it sandwiched and quilted, those seams won't show.

I agree with Sharon. The center of the quilt and the pieced border look fabulous. Once it is quilted, the white border seams will not be noticeable
