Sunrise Over the Horizon Lap Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party!

Welcome to Finished {or Not!} Friday where you can share what you're working on and see what others have been making!

Another Finish from 2018 is a Sunrise Over the Horizon lap quilt!

This is the second Sunrise Over the Horizon quilt I've made, and I will be making a queen size as a custom order in the next few weeks.  It will have Kona Cerise {a beautiful purply/pinky solid!} instead of the gray, along with two matching pillow shams.  I typically do not make custom quilts anymore, but every once in awhile, my NO button malfunctions and I can't resist a request to make a fantastic quilt such as this!

Quilt Stats:
Pattern:  Sunrise Over the Horizon
Fabric:  Gelato
Size:  49" x 69"
Batting:  Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 cotton poly
Quilting:  Maze on Gratitude in gray thread

This quilt is for sale in my quilt shop!

  1. Fabulous finish. This makes me want to do some more FMQ practice to see if I can't make a similar design on my domestic.

  2. Wow, that is really a beautiful quilt! I love the muted rainbow colors!

  3. I have noticed so many that do link ups are trying something new this year - love the way you have your quilt quilted.

  4. I love this!!! Gray is one of my favorite colors and the bright fabric really sets it off. Denise-For the love of geese

  5. Yup, no pictures prompted me to click on every link!

  6. A beautiful quilt and great quilting. As for the links without pictures, I can think of another linky party without pictures. I got many more visits from there than from other linky parties. Myself I will visit more blogs now.

  7. That's a beautiful quilt, but that quilting motif...it's amazing.

  8. Sunset over the Horizon is a gorgeous quilt, and it's really going to be stunning in Cerise! I have a custom order request waiting too, and I'm waffling between saying yes or no.

  9. Hi, Actually, I had problems copying and pasting my URL into the new format, so I never had the chance to link. If there are no photos to motivate me, I don't click on anyone. Sorry...it's a visual thing for me.

  10. Your quilt is so colorful. Love it.

  11. Catching up on blog posts after a long weekend, and so fun to see me quilt (with your pattern) here - thanks! I can't wait to get home and get 'er quilted up. Your quilt is stunning in its simplicity and quilting. Score!
