WIP Wednesday - A Finish!

I'm so happy to have a finish to show you this week!  I made this quilt for my friend and boss who turned 50 on August 23 (yes, I know - she got her present a couple of weeks late!).

She was super excited to receive it!  I love giving quilts to people who actually appreciate how much love and work go into creating one of these.


I used Blueberry Crumbcake charm squares for this quilt.  The pattern is from the Moda Bakeshop and was designed by Kim Niedzwiecki.  I didn't follow the pattern exactly - I decided against adding the last border.  So my finished quilt measures about 60" x 53".  The perfect size to cuddle under while watching TV on a cold night.



I quilted with some straight lines in the centre blocks and then again in the outer border.  In the middle border, I chose a cute whirlygig design.

I didn't have a large enough piece of fabric for the backing and really didn't have time to order anything online so decided to buy a good quality sheet and use that as the backing.

So my stats for this week's WIP:

Completed:
- Happy Weekender

In progress: 
- FQS 2012 Designer Mystery BOM (waiting for block 4 now)
- FQS 2010 Designer Mystery BOM (need to add the sashing between the blocks)

The rest of my projects haven't been touched or even looked at in weeks now so they hardly qualify as WIPs... they are basically on the verge of becoming UFOs at this point!

Linking up at Freshly Pieced!
