A Lovely Year of Finishes - February Goal Complete

My goal for ALYOF for February was quilting and binding my Impromptu Quilt, originally blogged here. I am so excited to share with you my completed Impromptu Quilt.  I purchased some 108" wide quilt backing by Kaufman in Aqua for the backing.  I think it works with the front nicely. I used Wild Thyme by Carolyn Gavin/ Lilla Rogers Studio for P&B Textiles from my stash.  

Here are some close up shots of the quilting, it does not show up in the other pictures very well.  

I also whipped up a little thread catcher for my long arm this week using this free pattern.  I did add a little loop so I could hang it from my machine. 

Super handy and will keep my floor a little less thread covered. 

Thank you for stopping by and visiting.

  2. Greta quilt and quilting! Congrats on meeting your goal!

  3. This is fantastic! I love it :) It caught my eye on QA with Pat Sloan because I just got my Impromptu Quilt back from the long-armer ;)

  4. I love this pattern, and your fabrics look fantastic in it!

  5. What a darling quilt! I don't think I have ever seen this pattern before. The quilting is nice, too. Congrats on your finish!
