Welcome to TGIFF on this wonderful Friday! I hope you have been having a very stitchy week and have a FO to share with us. My share today is from 2018! Well, the start is from 2018, than the top was finished in 2019, and I spent 2020 planning to quilt it! I even sandwiched it and had it ready to go. And something else always took precedence. But finally, I was determined to just get it done! So I did.
The fabrics were collected here and there with my return to sewing, I started with the fabric in the center of the backing on right, and then chose pieces that brought out the colors. When I came back to sewing I saw a Granny Square pattern and fell in love with it. It went on the bucket list! You would think it wouldn’t have taken me almost 3 years to finish it?
So now, I decided to get it done, but how? Quilting plans? Off to EQ I go! I tried several tings, looking for sashing ideas and block motifs. But once I used 2 motifs layered over each other, I was sold!
Now here’s how it looks in real life.
Well, maybe it’s not really a Circle Circle. More of a modified circle. You see, I didn’t have the exact size circle I needed to easily quilt around it. So I used a 10″ circle and just shifted it off center for each quarter I stitched.
Here’s how it looks all over
After 2 days of quilting I had it done, and the decision became, which fabric to use for the binding? I had 2 pieces left, the stripe used on the back and the dark teal blue.
After calculations were made I realized the striped fabric was the only option, unless I combined the two, but no, the stripe won out.
Now it’s time for you to join the party!
Don’t forget to come back Monday for the 6th round of SAHRR 2021! There will be another prompt and a link party for you to post to again.
