Finished or Not Friday {a Linky Party!} + Sunrise Over the Horizon {an Ombre Quilt!}

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 Sunrise Over the Horizon, a twin sized quilt made with ombre fabrics and Kona Iron.  I love the way it sparkles and dances in the light.  I'm digging ombres these days, so keep reading to learn about my Trip Around the World Quilt Along - I'm using ombres!

Quilting is an organic wavy stitch on Mrs.Singer, my antique 31-15 mounted on a long-arm quilting frame.  Backing is a modern Robert Kaufman Widescreen in gray on white.  This quilt is for sale in my Etsy shop.


This quilt was inspired by a quilt at Ida Rather Be Quilting.

Featured from last week's linky is this super sweet Checkmate quilt in Gooseberry by Silly Mama Quilts.


And this super handy grocery bag, just like the one I made a few weeks ago and featured here at Finished or Not Friday!  This one is made by Pam from Threading My Way.  You can get the pattern HERE.


The winner of last week's scrap pile is Amy B!  I've emailed you.

Your name for this quilt is perfect. It looks like a sunset over a grassy hill. I think the wavy quilting adds a lot of texture too. Nice finish!
