Blogger's Quilt Festival (Throw Category): New Wave

Hello! A special welcome if you're visiting because of Blogger's Quilt Festival - I sure do enjoy these online quilt shows that Amy has organized!

I always seem to have a finish very close to Blogger's Quilt Festival but I never can wait to share it so I end up (re)sharing something that is pretty recent. Oh well! I invite you to click on the tab under my header called Quilts - it will take you to a gallery of sorts and you can check out my other stuff if you like.

Here's New Wave! This project was begun in January 2011, about a year after I started this blog. I cut out all the pieces and then the project sat in a plastic box for more than two years (!!!!!) before I finished it. It wasn't an urgent finish - like for a birthday or birth of a baby or what have you - so it kept getting bumped from the to-do list by other, more urgent projects.

New Wave

But I never stopped loving the fabrics or the design (by Elizabeth Hartman of Oh, Fransson!). So I finally just made the time to finish it up and I'm so glad I did.

New Wave fabrics

The back is two of my favourite Ikea fabrics - I love their fabrics because they're inexpensive and extra-wide.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the Festival!

  1. Lovely quilt Felicity, I agree the backing fabrics are lovely. Great job.

  2. This is a lovely entry into the festival!

  3. I have loved every one of these I've seen! Brilliant

  4. I love seeing all of these "old" favourites during the festival! This is a really lovely quilt Felicity.

  5. I've always liked this how time flies, right! It's delightful, Felicity.

  6. I'm glad you finally had a chance to finish this quilt, it's really fabulous! I really like your photos too.

  7. OOoooh, pretty fabrics! Great job, Felicity - and always nice to finish up a long-term project. I've really got to do more to get an IKEA in town here, or make more regular trips out-of-province to get to one.


I *love* comments, and I try to respond to every one by email (but I can't if you're a no-reply blogger!). So go on, don't be shy - leave one to let me know you've stopped by!
