TGIFF - Splash of Colour Quilt Along

Welcome to Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday, being hosted here in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada.  We are in the midst of a rainy, windy storm, and I’ve lost electricity.  So I shall sit and twiddle my thumbs by flashlight.

TGIFF is your opportunity to showcase your finishes from this week and to see what other great projects have been created.


I participated in the Splash of Colour QAL hosted by Myra @ Busy Hands Quilts.  This is the baby quilt I made for my niece for Christmas, using this pattern.

31 x 41 inches

I used Kona Black, White, and Orange.

I quilted diagonal lines in white thread using my walking foot.






Now it's time for you to link up your finishes.  Link up your blog post showing off your finished project using the linkup below.  Don't forget to visit a few blogs to spread some quilty love and encouragement.  Please include a link and/or the TGIFF button in your blog post so your followers can also view all the great finishes.

  1. It looks awesome, Anja! That orange really pops against the black and white and makes it look so 'you'.

  4. This is such a cute quilt - perfect for your sweet niece! I love that pop of orange and the diagonal quilting. That sweet girl is in my prayers and it has been so nice to see on Instagram that she is improving and gaining weight. Sending hugs to you all!

  11. Hi, Anja - this is a really nice quilt! Love the cheery power play in it, and the orange pop keeps it from being boring or over bold, if that makes sense.

  19. Hi Anja, I got behind on my blog reading and I missed this post! Yours is a perfect project for this and a good representation of you with that splash of orange! The black and white with a splash of color is very interesting to me because I am currently working on a black and white quilt. May I ask what color thread you used to quilt it?
