WHOOMP There IT Is! #1

Today I have a couple of finishes to share for my very 1st WHOOMP There IT Is! Linky Party.
The 1st and most recent finish, is a comfort quilt for a friend who recently and unexpectedly lost her husband.  The pattern is called Snuggly Hugs & Kisses by Sew E.T.  I can’t even begin to imagine the devastation she feels and I pray it brings at least a bit of warmth and comfort in the coming months. 

 The 2nd finish is one I’m calling Practice Makes Perfect.   The pattern is New Wave by Elizabeth Hartman.  I used a fat quarter bundle of Thimbleberries fabric and a dark sashing instead of the white called for in the pattern.

I was so inspired after taking “Help! How Do I Quilt It?”: A Machine-Quilting Manual w/Angela Walters  Craftsy class, that I free motion quilted the entire thing! Hence the name, Practice Makes Perfect.  

There is really nothing perfect about it, quite the contrary actually, but the point is…I did it!  And I was tickled at how quickly I finished it!

I also finished both quilts w/my new favorite Faux Piped Binding technique.

And now I’m excited to see what you’ve been working on! Link up to my new WHOOMP There IT Is! Saturday Linky Party below.
