Almost Finished Friday

I look back to when I "re"started working on the "Sunkissed by Spring" Quilt (Nov.3 2017), and although I couldn't work on it every Friday..... I did try my best to work on it when I was in my Sewing room and it happened to be a Friday.
 At long last I can say it is finally (Almost) finished!!! It's a completed Quilt Top and that is good enough for me!!!

 I literally have a closet full of completed quilt tops, but they don't bother me as much as the bins of half started blocks. It feels good to finally have this quilt top assembled!!! I loved the pattern as soon as I saw it, but the fabric I ordered just wasn't that great. Don't get me wrong I loved the designs on the fabrics, but the cotton felt quite thin. 

So, it went into hibernation or a time out, I don't know... I just wasn't ready to deal with it. But it occurred to me that I paid $$$ for that fabric (poor quality that it was), and it was pretty after all, so I brought it out of solitary confinement and thought to myself " hey, you've been wanting to learn how to Free Motion Quilt, and it's not like I'm going to be any good in the beginning. Why not have a not so important quilt lying in wait for the day when I want to tackle FMQ'ing an entire quilt, but won't be crushed if it doesn't turn out as awesome as I want."

So that's the plan. It can go into the closet and I know it will be there waiting for me when I am brave enough to jump in to Free Motion Quilting an entire quilt. 

Don't think that I have been keeping my Mum from having "Finish it up Friday" fun. We worked on these blocks together over the last few months and hers is so close to finished.... She noticed one of her blocks had an oops, and she knew she wouldn't be able to unsee it, so after she fixes hers up I will post a pic of hers too.

Hmm, what will my next FIUF project be??? I have some quilty obligations to see to in March, so we will see. 

Be sure to come back to see my Mum's "Sunkissed by Spring" and in March I will have a fun project reveal to share that I've been keeping secret!!
