I think this is the best quilt she has done to date. Is it perfect no, but it is pretty darn close. I think she is pretty proud of it herself. The turning 20 pattern is great for showing off large prints and this bundle had some great ones. I did an allover meander and I know of one place I messed up, but I didn't even look for it once it was washed. I'm sure at some point Sharla will find it, but I'm not going to point it out to her.
I used Signature's Parchment thread and blends nicely with almost all the fabrics, it does show up on the brown blocks, but not in a bad way. I have to say I like the meander better than the loops, but it is a little harder when the thread blends into the fabric to make sure your lines don't cross.
I also finished the top of a test quilt I was asked to do about a week ago, but I can't show that to you until the pattern is released. It was lots of fun to do. But the most fun I had this past week was going to the Dallas Quilt show. Ohhh so many pretty quilts to see, and so many way out of my league. I will say I didn't love the best in show quilt, it wasn't really my style, but there was some that I really loved. And then there were the vendor booths. Sharla and I went on a buying frenzy. Before going in we knew of some things we wanted to see if anyone had, and we found one. But ohhh boy did we find a lot of other great stuff. I think we tallied it and Sharla bought 7 projects and I bought 6. So our to-do list just got longer. I've already cut one of them out for Sharla and I think she is going to work on piecing it this weekend. I'm not cutting any of mine until I finish my Kissing Booth and get the next test quilt done. I can't believe I've been asked to do three different test quilts. The next one isn't publishing until May, but I want to get it done before I start something new. I'll try and get some photos of what we bought on Sunday to show ya'll a little later.
For now I'm linking up with . . . Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Link a Finish Friday, TGIFF...Quilt Matters, NTT (Needle and Thread Thursday) and Fabric Frenzy Friday @ Fort Worth Fabric Studio.
