TGIFF - Stash Bee HST Quilt

Welcome to Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday being hosted here on the East Coast of Canada.  We have lots of snow here in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia; however, the temperatures have been very mild this week.

This finish is my February OMG goal.  It's about 54-inches square.  I had to wade through knee-high deep snow to get these photos.


I had planned to do something different with the quilting, perhaps some dot-to-dot quilting, but I couldn't figure out what to do.  As I was searching online, I came across this triangle all-over quilting motif.  I have done a similar box motif here -- which coincidentally, was my February 2016 OMG goal.


I finally gave in and used my IKEA Nummers fabric which I have been hoarding.






This is also one of my FAL 2017 Q1 goals.

  4. Trudging through knee high snow is definitely above and beyond the call of duty Anja, but so worth it for such a great quilt!

  16. What a beautiful finish! This quilt is so you, with all those pops of orange. The quilting is perfect for this and I love the backing and little bit of black pieced in among the orange for the binding. Just curious.... Was that planned?
