Friday Finish: Test Quilt Flimsy

Happy 4th of July everyone.  I hope you are having a wonderful day.  I'm off today, which is great, and I had big plans of sewing, quilting, movie watching, etc.  But in reality I've not gotten much done.  Well I did have lunch with my sister and friend, which was really nice.

For my finish I can't really show you much.  It is a test quilt I'm doing, but the pattern hasn't been released yet.  The designer hopes to release it in mid July.  The pattern is call Watkins Star, and it was super easy to make. Here it is after the last stitch...literally still hadn't cut the thread.  :)

Now this one shows the focus fabric I used a little better.  I love the mix of pinks, purples, yellows and grey. I pulled a couple of fabrics from my stash and bought a couple.  After I iron it I will decide if I want to put a border on it, but right now I'm leaning towards leaving it as is.

I have gotten a quilt loaded onto the long arm.  I hope to get it quilted tomorrow and then trimmed and bound on Sunday.  If all goes well I will do another one on Monday.  But right now I'm not pushing myself it is a holiday weekend after all.  My plans this afternoon is to watch a couple of rented movies and just chill in the A/C because it is HOTTTTT outside. Today I am linking up with Can I Get A Whoop Whoop @ Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Link a Finish Friday @ Richard and Tanya Quilts, Quokka Quilts, Finish It Up Friday @ Crazy Mom Quilts, Needle and Thread Thursday @ My Quilt Infatuation and Fabric Frenzy Friday @ Fort Worth Fabric Studio.


  1. I love those fabrics, this quilt is going to be very pretty!

  2. The grey does look lovely with those pretty pinks and purples. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished quilt when you're able to reveal it.

  3. The suspense is killing me ... loving that floral print and I love star patterns so I am very interested in this one revealed :)

  4. Happy 4th of July and I hope you have a great and productive weekend. I am definitely looking forward to more details on this sneak peak!


I love hearing from you!!! Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment!!!!!
