Finish it Up Friday

I have two finishes to share this Friday.

Oh, how I wish Moda Fabrics would consider reprinting this collection! Still one of my favorites. (Authentic by Sweetwater).


I wasn't brave enough to cut into any precuts, but I had plenty of bits and pieces to trim into 2 1/2 inch squares to make this pattern by Penny Sturges. (I chose not to add the optional zipper).

Love all the pockets on the inside!


My second finish was first blogged about here. I'm the chairperson of our guild's Block Of the Month committee, and this year we chose some beautiful Kaffe Fassett and Philip Jacobs florals as the inspiration for our color scheme. We decided to go with a pale free background solid, and I love the overall palette.

It's a fairly large quilt (80 inches square), so I wasn't able to get a good picture of the entire top.

When I went to look for sashing fabrics at my local quilt shop, this stripe just called out to me.

I love the backing, too!

Linking up to Amanda Jean's Finish It Up Friday.
