A bounty of quilts

October 3, 2012

I spent the weekend at Quilts for all Seasons – a quilt show and sale hosted by the 30 or so members of QuiltCo. It was a spectacular bounty of quilts all made by the talented members of the group. And then on Monday I picked up my own small bounty of quilts.

Six of them, all quilted and ready for binding. One of the common threads that runs through my chats with other quilters is “the finish” – many of us have a large number of works in progress, or quilt tops sewn but not quilted. That was the inspiration for M-R (of Quilt Matters) and Laura (of Quokka Quilts) to start TGIFF (Thank Goodness It’s Finished Friday).

And now they are celebrating their first anniversary with OctoberQuest – you can find all the details here. But the gist of it is you are encouraged to finish a project (or 2, or 3) and enter in any of the Friday linky parties in October. For every finished project entered you will get a chance to win 1 of 2 $50 gift certificates from Mad About Patchwork.

I will be participating in spirit – my goal is to finish the binding on all 6 of my quilts by the end of the month. I’ll share each of them with you as they are done. Good luck with your own finishes!

I almost forgot – use the code TGIFF10 to save 10% on your purchases in October!
