Friday Finishes: Sharla's Kissing Booth

Happy Friday everyone!!!  I hope you have had a wonderful week.  I've actually gotten a lot done, but I can't show you everything just yet.  But the big finish for this week is Sharla's Turning 20 - Kissing Booth quilt.  I'm a little jealous that hers is done, and I still have to add the borders to mine.  But hopefully that will happen next week.

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.  


  1. Oh how pretty! I love the big blocks of color. Someday I too shall meander, but for now I just "walk the line", LOL.

  2. Very pretty! I did a meander in between the weird loopy things on last week's finished, and I was surprised at how easy it was! I'm a big fan of the loops, though, because then you can cross lines by accident and say it was on purpose. ;)

  3. Such a beautiful quilt. I love the colors. :)
