Friday Finish - H2H Quilt

Almost done, the binding is ready to put on .... just have not found the time to sit at the machine this week.  We have a three day weekend, however we are getting the house ready for new floors on Monday! The carpet HAS TO GO!

I used a black/gray variegated thread -- here you can see a peek at the backing I used, an Alexander Henry print.

Right after I removed from the quilt frame...

And a side few that shows off the thread.  

Linking up with Sarah, Confessions of a Fabric Addict for her Whoop Whoop Friday party --- see you there.

Licorice Whip for Baby Lucas

This is the fourth time I have used this pattern, and still cannot believe how fast it comes together.  I started on Friday evening after work by cutting the pieces -- all of them.  By Saturday afternoon, the top was done and Sunday it was quilted.  No pressure, just took my time and enjoyed the process.

The backing used was a bold zig zag bordered by the main gray color used.

Of course, I personalized the quilt with the baby's name, Lucas .... I love this part.

And...a close up of swirls.

Pattern Name: Licorice Whip
Designer: Jamie Elfert, for Black Cat Creations
Finished Size: 64" x 64"

As much as I love traditional quilting, I enjoy the Modern Movement just as much.  Today, I am linking up Megan and Heather at Quilt Story for Fabric Tuesday.

Friday Finish - Licorice Whip

Introducing Licorice Whip, designed through Black Cat Creations --   The quilt above finished at 96" square, and has already been gifted to a special young lady, Rachel.  

The two quilts used on the cover below are on display at the Spring Market in Pittsburgh this weekend. My first "Modern" design.  The pattern comes with two versions:  two-color and three color.

I am so glad I can finally share this quilt, as it will become one of my favorite "Go To" designs for a quick and unique project. So easy, it can be made in a weekend -- really!  

Let's head to Sarah's, Confessions of a Fabric Addict and join everyone's Friday Whoop Whoop Project!
