Today is Friday and I have a Friday Finish to share!


I’m probably as surprised as you are…

Last week our local quilt shop asked me to make a few letters from the Alphabet Soup book. Of course I said yes, almost before the question was completely asked! I had so much fun working with the shapes in the letters when I made Jenny’s banner, so I jumped at the chance to make more. Having someone else provide the fabric was just icing on the cake!

The guys will take this piece and turn it into a bench pillow. They are busy prepping for the Mountain Quilt Quest shop hop that begins July 17 and the pillow will be on display. I’ll also have a new quilt pattern available during the shop hop – hopefully I can get some sunny pics to share with you here soon. We’ve had a couple of really dreary, gray days. But we need the rain so it’s a mixed blessing.

Oops, I got sidetracked by the weather….

If you follow me on Instagram (I hope you do!), you may have seen this picture. I was so dang impressed by the perfect points when I made the V – I was almost afraid to look to see how I did. Boy, was I a happy quilter! Perfect points make me feel all warm and fuzzy. You know, because I don’t achieve them very often! 🙂

Perfect Points

If you’re on the fence about adding the Alphabet Soup pattern book to your collection, I say go for it! The layout and design options for these letters and numbers are endless. I can’t wait to make a banner for my sewing room. (Nobody asked me to say these nice things, I just love the patterns and can definitely recommend this book.)

I’m so excited about having a finish I can share, I’m going to link to Finished or Not Friday, and Finish it Up Friday. Go check out all the great bloggers that share their projects!
