Another finished UFO plus Fabric Report

I'm a happy camper this week.  Lots of good things always happen in April, my favorite month of the year.  First up I finished my mystery quilt, "Coming Home" which was started in January 2016 as a project in Scrap Club with Kevin.  I used all kinds of scraps from Christmas to children's prints.  It has string piecing, old, old fabrics; and one of my least favorite colors, brown.  Linda at Flourishing Palms called it her 'ick' color and I have to agree it's not one of my favorites either. Although, after having said that, I do think it looks pretty good with the teals and/turquoise in this quilt. There was still a bunch of the browns left and a few orphan blocks, so they found their way to the back, along with some ancient pieces that needed to see the light of day.

I was also a Giveaway Winner too this week!!  Didn't I tell you that April is a special month? I am anxiously waiting for some Printed Treasures sheets which were a giveaway win over at Linda's blog. They are really going to come in handy this month, with 3 anticipated finishes that will need labels. Thanks so much Linda.  It's like an early birthday present!

Also completed this week was the backing to my Patriotic Rail Fence QOV. You can find the pattern information and details on an earlier post.

  2. I LOVE your backings (like the brown & turquoise back better than the front). The texture you got with your quilting on your quilt is wonderful :). Congrats on your win, too.

  6. Congrats on all the progress. Your UFO turned out beautifully. Brown is a nice color when used as an accent, it's not my favorite color to work with either.

  7. With all the other, fun, bright colors, I didn't notice the icky brown (except on the back). Nice quilts!
