Nautical News Twin Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Finish is a twin size Nautical News quilt for my niece!  She made the quilt blocks, and I assembled and quilted it for her.


Nautical News is a pattern of mine.  It includes 6 sizes from Baby to King, including two Lap sizes since people come in different sizes too!  This is a layer cake friendly pattern.


Backing is a Robert Kaufman print that I stock in my pattern shop.  Quilting is Wandering Spirals which resembles waves!


We've had some fantastic fall days here, perfect for a shot on the clothesline!

Fabric:  Lily and Loom On Deck from Craftsy

Full / Queen Size Picket Fence Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Finish is a full/queen size Picket Fence quilt!


Picket Fence is a layer cake friendly quilt pattern.  Even the pieced blocks are made from layer cake squares.  Grab a contrasting background color, and you're good to go!  The pattern includes 6 sizes from Wall Hanging to King.

For this quilt, I started with a layer cake and added more squares from coordinating yardage.


I revised my Picket Fence pattern in August, and one of the changes was making the queen size larger.  This quilt is made in the smaller size since I made the blocks last year, so it's more of a full size.



Quilt Stats:
Pattern:  Picket Fence
Size:  85" square
Fabric:  Ville Fleurie by French General Fabrics for Moda
Batting:  Hobbs Heirloom cotton
Quilting:  Feathers Allover on Gratitude in cream thread
Backing:  Extra wide back in cream floral

This quilt will be for sale in my quilt shop soon!  I need to take pictures of it on a bed first.
