Flaunt Your Finish - September Edition

"If you've got it, flaunt it."

Mel Brooks is a smart man.  Everyone likes to show off a good finish, right?  Little feels better than putting that last stitch on your binding and then getting to show off that beauty to friends and family, and maybe some people in the blog world as well.

One of the things we've really enjoyed doing in the last few months is sharing our finishes with all of you in our "Finish Friday" segments.  However, we have discussed that as much as we enjoy sharing our pieces with you, we also enjoy being inspired.  So, for the first time we are inviting you to participate in newly named "Flaunt Your Finish.

OKC Modern Quilt Guild

This feature will continue to occur on the last Friday of the month, and we hope you'll link up your finishes with us below after you peruse a few of the finishes from our talented members.  :)

First up we have Robin with her "Trick or Treat" quilt.  This quilt is 9 months in the making.  She began it just prior to finding out she was pregnant.  :)  She's also sharing the baby's first Halloween outfit.  Go on...say it...Awwwwww!!!  She says she still has a lot of quilting to finish before the baby arrives (VERY SOON!!!).  I hate to break this to you, Robin, but work as fast as you can.  Because once that baby gets here you won't have any time at all!  You'll be too busy staring at your beautiful baby girl.  ;)





Next up we have Andrea with her stunning zig zag quilt.  She created this quilt as a wedding gift for her cousin using the backing pattern "Fire Rescue" by Elizabeth Hartman.  It was a well deserved hit with her cousin who declared it her favorite gift ever!!!  What a compliment.  To think...she was nervous that her cousin might not like it.  Psssh!  A variety of patterns and solids were used, and on the back is a Basic Grey Grunge.  She used a combination of straight line quilting in the negative space with an echo quilting on the zigzag using a subtle variegated thread.  I think this is Andrea's second quilt EVER!!!!!!  She's so stinkin' talented!


Thanks so much for taking a look out some of our finishes!  We would love to see some of yours.  The only rules are:

1)  Your quilt must be actually finished.
2)  Your linked quilts need to have been completed in the month of September.
3)  This is not a requirement, but we would greatly appreciate it if you add our link back button to your blog as well.  (The code can be found on the sidebar.)

Thanks again!
