Don't Fence Me In.... TGIF Friday

Welcome to TGIF Friday!!

I LOVE having that little extra push to finish something!! and I needed it this month, it was a short month !!

Here is my February Finish!

It is called 
Don't Fence Me In
and the pattern is by Atkinson Designs
In her book Monterrey Medallions

and of course
This was a part of the Monochromatic Challenge
hosted by Judy at Patchwork Times

WAY back in 2011
( hiding my face)
I DID NOT think it was that long ago that I finished the top!!
But it was  *sigh*

And this is the backing
It was Kizmet - I was looking for something to back it with and I found this really bright orange piece

Of course, After I used ALL of the fabric I had
Little Bit told me he would want a shirt of that fabric..

umm  well

Maybe he will settle for the quilt??

and below
The quilting design called

(Quilted by Me!)

and NOW!! A finish!!

Which! Just in case you were looking for a Machine Quilter to work with you
I have appointments available 
( I'd love to partner with you!!)
Message me - email in profile

So that is my FINISH for this week -
and I am tickled Orange about it!!

Ready to share you finishes??

Hi Alycia! Are you saying this is a finished UFO from 2011?!! WOWEE! I am tickled orange for you. It's a great finish, and I love the quilting pattern you chose. What a great way to end this short month. ~smile~ Roseanne

It's beautiful, Alycia! Congratulations on getting it out of the WIP pile and into the finished pile :) And thanks for hosting this week!

Beautiful warm colours! Thanks for hosting this week.

Love the tangy orange.

Kate said...

Congrats on a fun and bright finish. Love the backing fabric, it definitely goes with the front. Would Little Bit really wear that bright of a shirt? My Guy is into Hawaiian shirts and he has some bright ones, but not one that bright.

Boy, that really is bright and beautiful! Huge burst of sunshine in this week of dreary weather!

Donna said...

Hi Alycia, this is my first visit to your blog and I'm sure glad I stopped by. I love the color orange, so when I saw your quilt, it just made me smile! Love it, and what a fun design (and name). Finishing a UFO feels so good, right!?

If Lil' Bit doesn't want it I'LL take it!!!! Love, love, LOVE it!

Ramona said...

There is something about orange quilts that makes me smile. This one gives me a big grin! It’s gorgeous. Great finish!

Julie said...

Love your quilt and what a great finish. I used to dislike orange, but it has really grown on me. I have many projects older than this one!

The Colorful Fabriholic said...

I love it! So not your usual color palette. But such a nice cheerful quilt for this colorless time of year!

Anja @ Anja Quilts said...

Great finish. Loving the orange!
