I am SO excited to have just this morning finished binding my Mercyful (Antique Tiles) Quilt. I started the quilt top in January as a donation quilt for the Mercy Hospital Hospice program that has been organized by Bernie@Needle & Foot. Please see my Mercyful Quilt Top Finished post for more information about my quilt top as well as some information about my connection to the Mercyful Quilts. This is such a worthwhile program, and I was thrilled when I found out that Mercyful Quilts is one the five charities that will be receiving quilts through the Hands2Help Comfort Quilt Challenge 2019 being hosted by Sarah@Confessions of a Fabric Addict. Below is a pic I took this morning of the finished quilt. I love how the blue sky ties in with the blue in the quilt (just luck really!).
Jessie@Threaded Quilting Studio did such an awesome job with the quilting and transformed my quilt top into a quilt that I am really proud of (and one that is a little hard to part with!). But I plan to get this quilt in the mail to Bernie on Monday.
- 60” x 60” size
- Pattern is Antique Tile blocks (free tutorial by Piece N Quilt)
- Fabric is all Carolyn Friedlander fabric (except the binding)
- Quilting pattern is Pineapple Skin
- Started January 2019, completed March 2019
This project was my first proposed finish for my 2019 Qtr 1 Finish-A-Long Goals.
Linking up to From Bolt to Beauty: Brag About Your Beauties and Confessions of a Fabric Addict: Can I Get a Whoop Whoop?. I will also be linking up to the 2019 Qtr 1 Finish-A-Long Finishes when the linky party opens.
That coincidence with the sky and also the juxtaposition to the texture and color of the building is very cool. And what a meaningful act to donate something that has a quilting you really appreciate (and is quite lovely.) Its such a beautiful quilt, I wish I could find a craft (and the time) to make something so lovely to send to someone(s) who will hopefully gain great comfort from it.
I can see why you are having a hard time letting go of it. The colors on this quilt just sing together! Is this all one line of Carolyn’s or a mixture?
I love your use of those orange fabrics. It looks super nice
This beautiful quilt will definitely bless someone. The fabrics are so pretty and the quilting is just fabulous! The photos in the sun are so gorgeous. Nice finish. What a thoughtful mercy quilt.
I love your quilt. Awesome colors.
Just beautiful xo
The quilting really makes the quilt sing. Congratulations on the wonderful finish, Mary, and I know it is going to mean so much to the recipient.
Hi Mary! What a great finish. The fabrics and the quilting pattern choice really give this quilt a life of its own. Someone will really treasure receiving this Mercyful quilt. ~smile~ Roseanne
