Finished Or Not Friday {a Linky Party!} + A Sneak Peek at Castle Dreams!

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 first Not Finished is my next quilt pattern, Castle Dreams!  Here is a sneak peek! The pattern uses 10" squares along with yardage of two fabrics and a background fabric.  This quilt is made from Handmade by Bonnie & Camille with a background of Moda Cross Weave in black.  I will be using this as a background fabric again.  It is so soft!

My second Not Finished, which contributed to my first Not Finished being not finished, is this play quilting on a Statler computerized machine!  The Gammill dealer put me in touch with a local quilter who has two long-arms mounted on a single table, and she let me play with her hand-guided machine as well as her computerized Statler.  She taught me a whole bunch over four hours!  And then told me I was the first person she has let touch her Statler, ever!!  Can I just say, YES, I see a Statler in my future!

Last week's most viewed link is Unlimited by Quilt Fabrication!

Looks like another winner of a quilt design - can't wait to see the whole quilt! And thank you for featuring Unlimited - it has received a ton of love!

Mari said...

It may not be finished, but that is some seriously beautiful quilting. (And two longarms on one table is just crazy!) Looking forward to seeing the actual finish!

Jen said...

That new pattern you are working on looks lovely. That background fabric is fantastic. I just might have to try some of that out.
How lucky you were to get to do some playing with your quilting. I would love to test out a long-arm or two.

Your test piece is lovely! I have a Statler and I love it... Hope you don't have to wait too long!
