Finished or Not Friday {a Linky Party!} + Boundless Beauty - A New Pattern!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Finish is the cover quilt for my new pattern - Boundless Beauty!  It's super sweet in Flower Sugar!  The instructions include 5 sizes from baby to king, with traditional piecing as well as strip piecing to make the process much faster.

The pattern is jelly roll friendly for traditional piecing and scraps or yardage friendly for strip piecing.  This quilt is the twin size.

Unlike previous brick quilt patterns I've written, this one is made from blocks rather than rows.  This creates half bricks and thus increases the scrappiness of the quilt.  There are five different blocks that make up the quilt, and I've done all the figuring for you in five different sizes!

Shannon of The Flemings Nine proofread and tested the pattern using a black background which makes the quilt just pop!

Boundless Beauty is available in my Craftsy shop!

I'm DESTASHING!!!  I started with Amy Butler fabric and will be adding more fabrics as I have time.  Check out the clearance prices in my Etsy shop!  Be sure to Favorite my shop to come back and see what I add.

Wiggle Whimsy Lap Quilt in Fancy {Custom Quilting}

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

This week's custom quilting for Andrea was a lap quilt in the Fancy collection by Lily Ashbury.  I ♥ this fabric - it says HOME to me, completely and totally, deep down in my heart.  Of course, there's a possibility of a rainbow in there!  

Quilting is an allover meander in white thread on Mrs.Singer.  The pattern is Wiggly Whimsy at the Moda Bake Shop.  Isn't that backing the sweetest floral?  It is also from the Fancy line.

The last of my custom orders for the year is another quilt for Andrea which I plan to complete next week.  Then I'm taking a break from all custom work until January.  I've got loads of me-sewing planned!  But first ...

I'm clearing out some of my fabric stash and will be listing them at destash prices in my Etsy pattern shop very soon!  Favorite my shop to keep in touch!
