I have been waiting for a Finish it Up Friday to show this quilt AGAIN! But now it is all done and ready to go, three weeks ahead of schedule.........that NEVER happens!
Carole and I truly hope this quilt raises a boat load of cash for our local Women's Shelter at the Festival of Trees to be held mid-November
Some closeups of Carole's fabulous quilting............
Tomorrow we hang our quilt show at the library Art Gallery space and we all finally get to see the twelve little river quilts all hanging together. Can't wait to share photos with you all.
Yes, I crazily quilted around all the rocks on the beach, the dern thing is so heavily quilted I think it will stand up by itself!
I did manage to finish one pairs of socks for socktober, even with the yarn emergency. The self striping yarn was the creative solution to a now discontinued yarn. I think they are funkily fun, not to mention warm and cozy.
Now for the Hexie-liciousness........
Regular readers know I have been working on the project on and off for over two years, sure wish I had discovered Sarah's binder clip tip way back at the beginning!
And now we are THIS close to being done, 5 more seams and some borders to go.
But she has been shipped off to Kamloops to be on display for this big event!!
The release of Katja's first book, it was so fun to watch her excitement at market via instagram, where the book was officially released last week.
To celebrate she is graciously giving away copy of her book to one of my readers who comments on this post, as well as Linda and Carla's blogs, so visit them too to triple your chance of winning.
I will announce the winner next Friday November 7th.
Happily linking up today with:
