thank god it's FRIDAY!

Not having been a 9-5er in a few years, I've kind of forgotten the sense of relief that comes from hopping in your car after work on a Friday afternoon.  But now we've got a new reason to celebrate Fridays-- Laura and M-R had the great idea to have a moving show and tell of sorts, TGIFF, where we all link up at somebody's blog each friday and show off our recent finishes.  Different than other linky finish parties, this one travels, and you have the opportunity to host one week, should you want to.

This week I'm happy to show off the Simple Squares quilt I made for my friend's son.  Started in July, all this needed was binding for months, and I finally got it sewed down just in time for the cooler weather. 

I quilted in my default wavy line pattern.  So simple, so easy.  I wonder if I'll ever try to freemotion any other patterns...

On the back I put a large scale Alexander Henry print of Chinese toys.  It'll give Logan something to look at from underneath as well.

And here's the whole thing.  It has been packaged up and sent on its way.  Hopefully the recipient can snap a photo of the baby and quilt for me when it gets there. 

***Argh!! I was supposed to be hosting TGIFF today, but didn't plan ahead and auto-post in time for the early-rising Aussies!  Sorry guys!  The linky party for today started on the main TGIFF page because I was late!  Pop over there to link up, ok!


  1. I love this quilt!! So bright and colorful!!

  2. What a darling quilt! And your wavy lines work very well. I hope you don't mind if I use your idea. I've got to make a quilt for a new baby boy who lives in NYC. OK with you?

  3. Nifty, you're welcome to try it, just promise to share a photo!

  4. Oh how gorgeous! Sorry about the confusion. How is late december looking for finishes?

  5. Jessica, I love how you added Logan's name in the corner and the mix of prints. Beautiful! Logan is going to LOVE this quilt! Well done!

  6. Great quilt! I love those wavy lines.

  7. It's so neat looking!
    I am clueless on machine quilting. I hear that it's possible with my $80 machine but I don't know how.
    I hand tie all my quilts.

  8. The quilt is wonderful! I love the wavy quilting, I might try that sometime. :-)
