Finished or Not Friday {a Linky Party!}

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


Welcome to the first edition of Finished or Not Friday where you can share what you've worked on this week, finished or not!  Creations with fabric, thread, or yarn are welcome.

My FINISH for the week is the gelato rainbow bargello quilt I made as part of the Bargello QAL over at Elm Street Quilts which ended in March!  My original attempt at quilting with flowing lines that followed the curve of the bargello was dismal, so I took it all out and quilted it with straight lines in a starburst design.  Much better!  The Gelato ombre fabric is very difficult to find but is similar to Benartex Gradations.



Elm Street Quilts

Each week I will feature an entry from the previous week's link-up, but since there are no entries from last week {LOL!}, I will enter my own.  Here's Brick Cottage Lane {2}, a pattern I released this week!  The pattern includes instructions for strip piecing as well as traditional piecing in 5 sizes from baby to king, using yardage or scraps.  You can purchase your copy in my shop.


It's your turn!  Link up any fabric, thread, or yarn creation that you worked on this week!  Adding a link back to the party in your post is friendly, so be friendly and share!

I think Bargello quilts are the coolest looking and yours is no exception. The colors really pop Myra - great job!

Shannon said...

Yes! That is sooooo much better! Your quilting design really adds to the effect of the bargello.

I just love the idea of Finished or Not (more apt to be Not with me!) I also love the Bargello quilt - the colors are beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful! I made a quilt using a jelly roll with the gelato ombré. I love how it turned out. I sent it to my sister as the colors are her style.

Julie said...

From many, many of us out here who work hard on longer projects that take time, thank you for the specifics of this link up!! I dare say I will stick my foot in my mouth if I go on too much about it, but to finish something is not the ultimate goal. To create something IS! And to focus on the process as well as the end result gives you a big gold star in my book, Myra. I dearly appreciate you naming this, "Finished or Not..." Hurrah!!

AlidaP said...

What a beautiful finish! I have some ombre fabric, bargello is a great way to use it, I will remember this :) Thanks for sharing!!

Karen said...

Very pretty Bargello quilt. I like your new quilt pattern.

GO STARS! said...

I've linked up my ombre' quilt for my sister. It is #20. And I agree that anything made with these fabrics will sparkle. I've got another jelly roll to play with. I'm waiting for just the right project.

I wish I had been more diligent at my blog reading to know that you were starting a Friday link up! As soon as I get back to a normal routine I will certainly be linking up. I love that it doesn't have to be finished too. I have had so many weeks where I've made sewing progress, but not finished, so this is perfect!

Love your bargello quilt too. The starburst quilting looks fantastic!

I love your Brick Cottage Lane {2} pattern; I will definitely be buying that one as well!

Sewmotion said...

Wow!! your Bargello is beautiful, and that quilting is stunning!! well done you!

Jayne said...

This is my favorite Bargello quilt I have seen! I love the flow of color. The grey is perfect!

Zenia Rene said...

Myra! I love the name & premise of your linky party! =) I will be sure to link up whenever I do post. I actually meant to link a previous post...but time got away from me. Your straight line starbust quilting is spot on!

Celtic Thistle said...

I love Bargello quilts and yours is gorgeous. I especially like the quilting, what a great idea to go with starbursts.

Rachel said...

Pretty bargello! Congrats on the pattern release. It looks very nice!

TheEclecticAbuela said...

I love your bargello!

Susan said...

Fantastic Bargello! It's on my to-do list, but I'll admit, way at the bottom.
Congrats on the first linky post, and for sharing at Midweek Makers
