Sorbet Quilt Finish!!!

Welcome back To:
Finished or Not Finished Friday

I had such fun last week looking at all the  projects - you all just made my Bucket list get bigger!!

But that's okay - here is what I learned this week:

How about you??
Ha ha!!

I was asked about a FONF Graphic - and you all know my Graphic Designer went to college
So here is my Attempt

And Now!!

Here is my Finish for this week:

So one day I was browsing Instagram ( I am @alyciaquilts) and this quilter was giving away this top - with the intent that the new owner finish it and send it off to a charity.  I immediately said - ME!  I would love to quilt it as a Quilt of Valor...... We support a Womens PTSD unit and those Amazing Women Veterans LOVE our Girly quilts!!! So we always try to have a couple on hand!!

And now this will be one of them!!

Isn't it fun and bright?

And to keep it really bright - look at the back I used! This is what it will be bound with too - I will take it to my QOV sew day and one of the amazing Quilters will bind it.... adds a LOT more love!

Alright - Lets link up those great projects now - and let me have some more Ohhing and Ahhing this week!!

What an awesome quilt top! Cool for making the backing neon pink. 😄

I feel the same way about books - and earrings!

Beautiful! I really like that quilting pattern. Someone will surely appreciate this quilt. Lucky you to be able to adopt it, finish it, and eventually present it.

Preeti said...

Alycia, this is a beautiful quilt and perfectly quilted. When we think of QOV we seldom think of women. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Love your work and dedication to the cause of veterans. Sending warm hugs to you and hope you have a fabulous weekend!!!

I love the pop of color the backing and binding will provide!

Great team work involved.

Nancy said...

What a beautiful quilt. I love the color range. I think I might have had a hard time giving this one up. It's great to know some wonderful ex-servicewoman will appreciate and enjoy it!

Ooooh, I was thinking very girly. Lovin' the feathers and fans.

And I like the "little bit green" and the 'punkin' too.

Good job everyone.

Immortal? But then I can't win by having the most fabric when I die, LOL!! Great quilt for charity and a generous quilter to offer it to you. I never thought of making more "feminine" quilts for female vets -- got to keep that in mind going forward. Thanks to your designer for the FONF graphic!!

Kathleen said...

Kathleen said...
