Threadology Quilt Along Finish and Auction!!!

Well it's that time. . . The Threadology Quilt Along hosted by the Fat Quarter Shop is coming to a close and that means finished quilts!!!!   I absolutely love this part of a Quilt Along, seeing everyone's finishes is just so much fun :)    This has been such an amazing event to be a part of and I just love that it was all for such a wonderful cause!!  


My quilt finished at 72" x 72" as I did a different layout with more blocks which I described in this post.    This alternating block layout really turned out to be a fun way to mix and match all of those blocks in the two different sizes.   And I just love all of the happy colors and prints.  I used bits and pieces from several Bonnie and Camille fabric lines (including Handmade, Hello Darling, Little Ruby, and Daysail)  and I just love how they all blend in a wonderful harmony across the quilt.   


And when it came time to quilt it, I went all out ;)   I did tiny pebble quilting in all of the white space on the quilt to give the quilt lots of texture and help each of the block designs stand out.  Then I quilted each block in it's own little design using petals, feathers, loops, L and E's, arches, wavy lines, cross hatching, and ribbon candy.  It was so much fun to quilt and while it took a while, it was so worth it :)    


My favorite 402 Pearl So Fine thread blended perfectly on all of the prints and really made the texture of those pebbles just pop.    And that texture really makes each block stand out, which had me doing a major happy dance.  I am just thrilled with how it all came out and ya, basically I just love it!!! I just wanted to run my hands across the quilt top for days feeling all of that wonderful quilting texture. 


But I only had a few days for that because this quilt needed to put in the mail to head to my friends at Fat Quarter Shop because . . .  Surprise Surprise . . .  I decided to Auction this quilt off along with Pat Sloan's to raise even more funds for the amazing Make a Wish Foundation :)  


Yup, that's right.  This quilt is now being Auctioned right over here, and all of the proceeds will go to the Make a Wish Foundation.  And can I tell you how much that just warms my heart.  I love that I can use my passion for quilting to help others, it just doesn't get any better than that ;)   



And that is my Threadology Quilt!!!!   And now it's your turn to finish yours and I can't wait to see it!!!   And if you are quilting along with the Threadology fun you can download the backing pattern right here and it is requested for each pattern you download to donate $5.00  to the Make a Wish Foundation :)    And wow, you all have been so awesome donating!!! 


And be sure to share your Threadology Quilts on social media with #threadologyquiltalong and check out Fat Quarter Shops post for lots more finished Threadology Quilts and Details on the Quilt Auction!!!!   Eeee , I just love seeing all of these beautiful finishes!!! 

And that's it for the Threadology Quilt Along!!!!  I am so glad that I was able to participate in this wonderful Threadology Quilting Along and I am already looking forward to next year's Charity Quilt Along.  It's going to be hard to wait 6 months to see what the new design will look like, but I know it is going to be amazing and totally worth the wait ;)  

Thanks for popping in today and each and every day ;)   I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!
