Friday Finish - Red/Gold Version

Sarah, at Confessions of a Fabric Addict is hosting her new linky "Whoop Whoop Friday". A party where we can gather to share our progress.


Here is mine -- all finished! A Red/Gold version of "Nicole's Journey". The pattern / tutorial is available, however there is a little difference. I added a 2" inner border and 6" outside border for fun. I have a HUGE collection of gold metallic fat quarters. Most of them came from our LQS, The Quilting Niche' when they have $1.50 fat quarter Saturdays.

Up close quilting -- wish I would have changed to red thread on the red fabric, but I will live with it.



And -- a closeup of the border. Finished size: 63 x 88.
