Finish it Friday...

It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to do a Friday finish post. A very long time. But I have one now...... Woohoo, Yippee and happy dance! Sisters Across the Miles is finished. Here she is in all her wonderfulness. She was originally started way back in November of 2014. I didn’t really know where it was going, other than as a project to use up hundreds of two inch four patches I had left over from making a triple four patch quilt. I’d spent a year doing the Rainbow scrap challenge, and my project was the triple four patches. See that one here. It has yet to be quilted.
This quilt design occupied a lot of hours in the Electric Quilt software. I tried out a lot of alternate arrangements before coming up with what I think is the perfect choice. I love quilts with strong graphic lines and also quilts where the definition between the blocks blur and it becomes hard to tell where the individual blocks actually are. I also love borders..... lots of borders. The finishing touch is a diagonal striped binding with orange faux piping. 
I am so happy and thrilled with this finish. This will eventually be released as a pattern. It is about halfway written. I am still pondering which vehicle on the internet to use for the actual selling part. As soon as all that is done, there will definitely be an announcement here.
I’m linking up to a couple of celebration parties. One at Crazy Mom Quilts and another at Can I Get a Whoop Whoop?


  1. This is stunning! Absolutely love it...best wishes on your pattern release!

  2. Gorgeous quilt. I really like that idea that you've shown about block lines blurring and creating a wonderful whole. Look forward to the pattern!

  3. I love this quilt! I clicked on your link, thinking that this quilt must be a Bonnie Hunter pattern I wasn't familiar with. How great that this pattern is your own design!!

  4. It's really pretty. It looks like flowers. Your design is really achieve.

  5. It's a beautiful quilt. Congrats on a wonderful finish! Love it!!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
