February Flaunt Your Finish


Welcome to February's Flaunt Your Finish! 
Don't forget to link up at the end of this post!



Our members have some great finishes to flaunt this month, so let's skip the chit-chat and get right to it!

Trina made this quilt for her daughter's full-size bed going off a pattern one of our guild members used for a bee block. And we're happy to hear that Trina's daughter loves it! I love it too and what a cute room!


 Most of the fabrics are by Amy Butler, with a few other things thrown in. Yum-o!


Agnes made this small wallhanging at QuiltCon and it's a color-sketch of sorts for a later quilt. The QuiltCon class required bringing an orphan block (the small one in the middle) and she worked around that block, enhancing and supplementing it with other blocks in an improvised manner. 

Raw edge applique over hand-dyed cotton fabric, raw edge binding.

In her quest for the "perfect" bag, and after searching patterns and internet tutorials, Agnes decided to go indie and she set out to make her own from scratch. 


The epic "Colors" bag is an amalgamation of shape, colors, and features that Agnes wanted or had seen elsewhere - with a good dose of blood, sweat and tears that it took to figure out how it should be put together! Hmmm...looks to me like there was a lot of math involved....


I hadn't heard about this Fractured Pervalong until I saw this top by Angie. Holy cow that's cool!


Amanda completed several projects that she took with her to QuiltCon.

Noodlehead 241 Tote; Journal Cover inspired by Stitched in Color; Anna Maria Horner's Art Student Tote
While they aren't all perfectly matched, as Amanda enjoys a little splash of everything, she did use Kona Yarn Dyed Essex in black in all three to create a sense of uniformity. Amanda says she's not sure that worked, but we think the results are lovely. Amanda also says that it was really fun venturing into the non-quilty realm for a change of pace. But, after QuiltCon, she's refreshed and ready for some quilting!

And I finally...FINALLY...got a little sewing in myself, because I couldn't take a plain old notebook with me to QuiltCon.


Okay, we've shown your ours. Now it's time to show us yours. Link up a finish from your blog or flickr account. Thanks for joining us! 

Look for our next Block-of-the-Month on Monday, March 4th!
