Finished or Not Friday {a Linky Party!} + Rainbow Star Baby 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!

Things are quiet here on the blog because I am in Arizona on vacation, sans my immediate family, visiting my parents who winter here.  Today I attended a quilt/sew show with my friend, Shannon of The Fleming's Nine.  After a two-year online friendship, we met for the first time in person yesterday!  We've had a great time chatting up all things quilting and family, and today we test drove long-arm machines at the show.  What fun!

My finish is a rainbow star baby quilt through my Quilt Shop.

Quilt Stats:
  • Pattern:  Rainbow Star, available here.
  • Size: 40" square
  • Fabrics:  Kona Cotton in 16 shades with gray.  Backing and binding are Benartex rainbow.
  • Batting:  Hobbs 100% cotton
  • Quilting:  Allover small meander in gray thread.
The most viewed link from last week was Chantal's Hidden Gems quilt!

It's your turn to share your finish {or not}!  What's welcome at this party?  
  • Any in-progress or finished project made with fabric, yarn, or thread is welcome!  
  • Projects from this week only!
  • ♥ ♥ PLEASE!  Link to the actual blog post, not your home page.  We'd like to see your post and don't have the time to go hunt it down.
  • Include the Finished or Not Friday button or a text link that links back to this week's link-up in order to share the fun.  No, I won't delete your link if you don't, but hey, adding a link in your post is just being friendly, so be friendly and share!!
I will pin your links to my Finished or Not Friday Pinterest board to get your link more exposure.

Sounds like you've had some great fun with your new friends. Love your Rainbow Star quilt. I like brighter colors in baby quilts. I'll be in Arizona in 2-1/2 weeks. I'm looking forward to seeing some sun shine. Blessings! villacrestfarm@gmail.com

How awesome that you and Shannon got to meet in person...and test drive long-arms. That's one of my favorite things to do at quilt shows. I love that border fabric on your Star baby quilt. It's just perfect.

Shannon said...

Super cute baby quilt! Having such. Great time with you in Arizona!

Your quilt is beautiful! I love that grey background against the bright and cheery rainbow colors.

I test drove all the longarms yesterday at the Phoenix Quilt, Craft, and Sewing Festival. What is the Phoenix Quilt, Craft, and Sewing Festival you ask? It’s a place you pay an exorbitant amount of money to park your car, pay to enter the 3 buildings to shop at vendor booths from all over the country with limited inventory that one can find on sale at the LQS, move along at a snail’s pace shoulder to shoulder and front to back with women who are madly scrambling for every piece of fabric they see (as if they’ve never seen fabric before and can’t get it anywhere else), and if you are thirsty or hungry stand in line for half an hour to buy an $11.00 hot dog and a soda for $5.50. Were you there?
