Finish It Up Friday ~ Purple HSTs

I have one more donation quilt that I finished before I left for AZ. I decided to wait to post it as I wasn’t likely to have any big finishes this week! I’m still recovering!

I present, the purple quilt!

I sewed up all the HSTs and then just randomly grabbed them to sew together into rows. I ended up having only two like pieces touching! I call that a win. The pantograph I used to quit this is called Whoosh and it is from urban Elementz.

I used purple thread on the top and back. I think it looks great against this backing fabric.

I have one more donation quilt to make and then I will send all five off to Quilts Beyond Borders. You can click here to learn more about how you can help to cover kids in orphanages with pretty quilts.

    Lovely finish. Randomly grabbing is one of my fave ways to go it! We definitely have to meet up the next time you’re in town. 😁

    It’s a beautiful quilt for a great organization. I had to look for a minute to find the 2 like pieces touching. Definitely a win!!

    Beautiful and you’re giving it away!

  8. Wow! Your purple quilt is gorgeous – do you randomly place your HST’s or spend time placing them?. Naturally I know that you would not like two fabrics to touch – I just wonder how much time you spend placing the squares. I love your work. Yes, children are awesome and tiring!!

    It’s VERY nice, Katy. My granddaughter would love it as she loves the color purple. I have several lovely pieces of purple fabric but just couldn’t settle on an idea as to what to do with them. Sometimes, I just over-think things. You’ve given me a great idea. 🙂

    A big win indeed! Not just the color or that only two like pieces are touching…but donating to Beyond Borders!
