Finish It Up Friday

ETA: I have had many inquiries regarding a pattern for this quilt from those who have found it via Pinterest. I am NOT the author of this pattern. It was from a quilt along hosted by Lori at Humble Quilts. You  can check there to see if the pattern is available. I changed mine somewhat, but I am not giving out any measurements or instructions as it is not mine to give. Thank you for your understanding.

 

This finish is from last week but it is a finish none the less. My Cascadia Mystery quilt, from the QAL hosted by Humble Quilts, is done. All the clues were out before I was done with the first one so I could see where this was headed. As a result, knowing I was short on time, I simplified mine a bit.

These seminole type strips were supposed to have 5 squares across and I used three. The center columns were supposed to be 4 squares across and mine has only two. Here is my version.

I machine quilted this very simply. Here is the back.

Don’t you love that binding fabric? It was a gift from my bloggy friend Kathy at Inspired by Antique Quilts. It is the perfect color/print to go with everything vintage looking. It enhances but never takes away from the whole.

I so appreciate the time and effort that Lori at Humble Quilts puts into her QALs. Thank you, Lori!

I do have some squares left over. Think I will use these as leaders/enders. Who knows what they will become!
