Feelin' some early Fall All Around - ~Flimsy Alert!~

Whoopin' it up two weeks in a row!!  Whoop! Whoop!

Who knows why the purples are coming out far more blue than real.

Here it is, my 2011 Patchwork Party BOM project finished into a complete top!
Coming in big at 86 x 98 inches.


This BOM got put together in record time - I started working on it just this March.

You want to hear something funny? This quilt top and last week's quilt top were both designed by the same person! 



I bought that Set Sail kit inside the shop in Florida a good eight or nine years ago (Quilting by the Bay - which is a really great online store, but if you're ever in Panama City, you need to visit the shop, as it's really wonderful). I bought this Patchwork Party kit online in 2011 - the blocks in the center were each created and sold by different quilt shops online, and each shop presented a different finishing pattern. The one I chose happened to be put up by that same Florida shop. And now, after the blue one was worked on sporadically since 2013 and this one finally got pulled out of untouched-storage, they both came up to be finished tops together without any realization that they're both Sandy Perdue designs (with Sue Elliott on this one). 

I just find that highly entertaining.


Getting to this stage for this quilt scores me one of my 17 in 2017 projects, and the way our nights have been cooling off lately, it's going to fit the mood perfectly very, very soon. Good thing it's my next longarm quilt~! I have a great leaf panto that will be just the thing for this. I'm looking forward to using that great sashing to practice a way to square a quilt top up as you go with the floating approach to loading quilts.

These are 2 of the prettiest quilts I've seen lately! We must enjoy the same colors because I just love the fabrics chosen on both of them. Thanks for sharing.

That really IS a fall quilt, isn't it? It's hard to believe those quilts were designed by the same person. They are so different! It feels good to be getting older projects finished, doesn't it?
