Finish It Up Friday ~ Donation Quilt

Well, hello Friday! It is always good to see you! I am happy to say that I finished the donation quilt I was working on this week and used up most of this fabric that I didn’t really care for. I have some of that green from the border/binding left over which I don’t mind at all. And those bonus HSTs. Hmmmm….

Anyway,  I used some of that high loft poly batt that I have complained about in the past. This was the last time. I donated the roll to a group that makes tied quilts for Lutheran Services. They were thrilled to have it. I was thrilled to have it out of my sewing room!

 I used a pantograph called Seaweed by Hermione Agee. I also used Glide thread in Celery. Here is the back, a very old print found in the stash that matches really well. (See, it really does all find a home!)

  And here is the finished graffiti quilt for my grand dog, Bambi, after washing.

Yep, it is really hard to see the quilting in these pictures!

 Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. I hope Bambi will appreciate its beauty! Love that seaweed panto! Great finishes!

    The high loft poly might be a pain to work with, but it looks like it gave that quilt some really great “poof” between the quilting lines. I agree with Paige above–that seaweed panto is cool!

  3. Great quilts! I’m sure they will both be well used!

  4. The graffiti quilting looks great! I love the yellow binding on that one too. The donation quilt is pretty too, and how nice to have that fabric used up! Thanks for linking to TGIFF 🙂

  5. This is a great quilt. I like that you only put a border on the top and bottom. Makes is visually interesting.
