QFC #3 Coming off the frame...YES!

Alrighty then - I'm thrilled I can say I've finished up QFC Quilt #3 ahead of schedule and it turned out great!

This is one of my favorites!

The back - I almost like this as much as the front ;-)

That's what I love about doing these quilts - there are definite deadlines and it compels me to 'get w/the program' and get things done, even if I have to struggle through a new quilting design challenge, I always come out better on the other side packin' a brand new skill, it's a WIN/WIN for everyone!

Been using a few of Dusty Farrell's Radical Rulers to get some of my 'curves' going on with my McTavish/Tango quilting - they work great, especially when I get stuck for an idea.

Most of the quilts I've quilted recently have been embroidered/constructed by fellow Quilter's for Comfort members, who do such an incredible job.  This quilt however, is my own personal contribution.  I enjoyed designing this one, especially the embroidered blocks w/my trademark 'crazy quilt' spin on things.  Because this quilt is intended for a very special Veteran, I wanted to keep it gender neutral.  I did eliminate any blocks that could be considered too 'girly'.  So it was somewhat of a challenge to add my crazy quilt embellishments in a tasteful manner, but I think it came out fine, don't you?  

Coming off the frame...

And now I'm off to bind/wash/label - right after I celebrate w/Hershey Bar ;-)


  1. Super nice.... and I love that you showed the back and agree - it's as nice as the front!

  2. Thank YOU, Miss Katie -
    How nice of you to agree with me ;-)!

    Thanks again for stopping by and don't forget to come back again, soon...
