Flaunt Your Finish: November 2014


Welcome to November's Flaunt Your Finish! I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving and if you were out with the crazy people masses this weekend shopping, I hope you got some good deals without bloodshed.

We have less than a handful of finishes this month. I suspect that's due to the fact that Christmas is just around the corner and our projects are being kept under wraps. Don't forget to link up your project at the end of this post!

First up is Amanda L: 
As usual I’m behind on my holiday makes, but I was able to make two of these table runners in time for Thanksgiving.  I added a couple of extra points to the maple leaves to give them a fuller feel and decided to use this runner as an opportunity to try out some serpentine quilting for the first time.  I really like the feeling of movement it creates.  This was also my first time to use a scrappy binding, and I like the playful feel it evokes.  I love using small projects like this to try out new techniques.

Next, from Ann W's: 
I made a small 24 x24 inch improv wall hanging for my nephews' play room. One of them loves the moon!

Ann is a new member and this is her first time to participate in Flaunt Your Finish. Welcome, Ann!

And finally, (I told you we had less than a handful) from Agnes S:
This is basically my version of a quilted "tat". Just riding on the wave of tattoo fashion, and fully appreciating/feeding on  the art of Ed Hardy, Mexican "Dia de los Muertos" themes, as well as Pakistani "ralli" quilts, I came up with this small quilt.  Front and back panels are commercially purchased bandannas, central panel has double batting, and the whole thing is doused with big stitch quilting in 6 ply embroidery floss. 

Now it's your turn! The only rule of Flaunt Your Finish is that your project has to have been completed in the featured month. So....bloggers and flickr users, dig through your November finishes and give us a little link, m'kay?

OKCMQG MEMBERS: Handmade Gift Swap is just around the corner! Can't wait to see what you all have been making!
