Flaunt Your Finish: November Edition

Welcome to November's Flaunt Your Finish!

We've had some comments from people who would like to participate in Flaunt Your Finish but feel they have to have a blog to do so. Not true! Sign up for a Flickr account. It's quick, easy and FREE and will allow you to ADD YOUR FINISH in the Linky at the bottom of this post. We'd love to see what you've made!

Our Guild finishes are few in number this month and I think I know why...

Our Guild Christmas Party is this weekend and we're all bringing a handmade gift to swap. I'm pretty sure we've all been diligently working on our gifts. I'm really excited to see what everyone has made, and I'd be less than honest if I didn't admit that I'm also excited to see what I come home with!

Additionally, many of our members are preparing for a local Indie Craft Bazaar called Deluxe. In fact, that's what Agnes has been working on. 

These cute little things are Felt Sushi Pins and will be one of the children's crafts the Guild is providing at the bazaar. They're made by rolling up 1/2-inch wide felt strips in different combinations. When ready, backing and a pin are glued on and...presto! A yummy and modern pin. For ages 6 and up.

Melissa has two finishes this month! I'm a bit in awe of Melissa right now. I spent last weekend with her at a Quilt Retreat (Thank you Bluebird Lane!) and Melissa went to town on quilting. I think she quilted 3 quilts while there, so I am completely amazed that she had these other two completed quilts at home.

This first quilt was made for the daughter of her Senior Pastor at her church who is about to have her first baby. Zig-zag or chevron?  Hmmm....that's a debate for another day, but there's no debating how fabulous this quilt is.!

Her second quilt is for the Pre-School Pastor at her church who just had her second baby boy. I'm sure mother and baby will love it!

Pattern: Off Track by Cluck, Cluck Sew
And finally, Trina says she copied (I'll say inspired) by a quilt on Pinterest and the idea of a wonky star. She thought the back was green, not grey and bought 4 yards of the wrong color -  Green Tea Kona anyone? She modified the wonky star quilt pattern from 'Liberated Quilting' and I love her end result!

That's what we have to show this month. Now it's time for you  to Flaunt YOUR Finish. Linky up below and grab a button to share! Thanks for participating!
