My First Finish of the Year!

Oh happy day, happy day!  

I'm singing because it's Friday and I have a finish to share! My first finish of the year!  This is my version of Cultural Fusion's Free-form Rail Fence. And it's a big one, finishing at 112" x 112".  

I made it for my king-size bed, but it is pictured on the queen bed in my guest room.

I pulled this project from My Quilty Bucket in October, which means it took me approximately 4 mos to complete. Of course, I'd like to produce a quilt a day, but I'll take a finish whenever I can get one!

I quilted it with this lovely orange thread called Firestorm by Glide and the Malachite pantograph from Urban Elementz. 

Here is a close-up of my quilting. I'm still wobbly on the longarm but I am getting more confident in my abilities. 

I won this wide backing from Pineapple Fabrics on IG in June 2020. I was so excited to finally use it in something!  I did have to add to it to make it big enough though.

 Here are a few more pics to ogle. 

Thanks for stopping by. Until next time, Happy Stitchin', and God Bless!
