Ta daaaa! A finish!

You knew I couldn’t wait! This is the Abundance quilt from Lori’s quilt along at Humble Quilts.  I actually finished this Tuesday morning. I loved how it was turning out and couldn’t wait. She posted the directions for step 2 here.

The quilting is a random grid that I like to use. No marking ahead of time, I just start in the middle and go for it. I do all the rows going one way, turn it 90 degrees and then do all the rows going the other way. I like the slightly wonky look it gives. I actually used a yellow thread for the quilting and I really love the way it softened the look of the quilt.

I am looking forward to seeing how everyone else interpreted this little design.

This is my third finish in as many weeks. Granted this is a small one but I sure hope I can keep this pace going through the rest of the year!

Until next time….
