Finish It Up Friday ~ Sea Sick!

I’m still quilting and finishing tops that I stitched up last winter in Arizona. I made this top all from Cotton and Steel FQs. I used Bonnie Hunter’s tutorial called Scrappy Trips. You can find it here.

I started calling it Sea Sick because it kinda made me feel that way! This is one busy mix!

It is hard to photograph a big quilt; this one is 96 by 96 inches.

This next pic shows the lengths Mr. Wonderful will go through to support my crazy ideas. I told him I wanted a full on shot so he used his drone to take some of these photos as well as a video at the end of this post.

​​I quilted this top with a pantograph called Malachite, available from Urban Elementz. I wanted a lot of texture, but I knew details sure wouldn’t show.  This next pic shows the back.

I love how it looks on my guest room bed!


Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. I love your quilt! That pattern is one of the most fun quilts I have ever made! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Oh that looks wonderful with that headboard in your guest room! Very old fashioned and cozy looking even though the fabrics are bright and modern. And they are really scrumptious! What a great finish!

    Well that is really cool! How clever you guys are to take drone pictures of your quilt. It really worked well. And, it looks stunning in your guest bedroom. The green headboard really works with the quilt (or vice versa.)

    How cool is that video! Love it AND the beautiful quilt! I never get tired of those scrappy trips–every one is a beauty. I have three going right now, one multi, one red/white/blue and one greens & purples.
