Bloomtopia - Finished!!!

It's the final day of the Bloom-Topia Quilt Along hosted by the Fat Quarter Shop and I am thrilled to be sharing my finished quilt!!!!  This has been such a fun quilt to make and I am so excited with how much was raised for  Make a Wish Foundation :)  I just love participating in Fat Quarter Shop's annual charity QAL as not only do I finish with a beautiful quilt, but it also benefits so many wonderful people!!!


I did not do the 2020 Pieced Backing, just a basic one so I didn't bother to take a picture of it.  But if you want to do the original backing, you can find the Backing Pattern Here.    My layout is totally different than the original pattern so the original backing would not have fit ;)  And there are links at the end of this post to all of the alterations I did, just in case you want to make your Bloomtopia quilt with the same layout as mine ;)  


And when it came time to quilt mine, I decided on an all over loose feather.  Mostly because it is super fast, and this was a super big quilt that I quilted all of yesterday.   So a quick and pretty design was just the trick.  And I just love all of the beautiful texture it adds to the quilt!!!


I can't even begin to say how much I have enjoyed this QAL!!!  This is my 6th year participating in the annual Charity Quilt Along (2015 Snapshots, 2016 Crossroads, 2017 Patchwork2018 Clementine, 2019 Threadology, and this year 2020 Bloomtopia) .   And I have loved it every bit as much as the previous years and now I just get to look forward to next year's !!!!


But before we start looking to next year, there is still a little fun left for this 2020 Bloomtopia Quilt Along!!!  Both Sherri and Chelsi, and Pat Sloan are acutioning off their Bloomtopia quilts and all the funds raised will go to Make a Wish Foundation.  Isn't that so great!!!  You can see all of the details of the auction at the Jolly Jabber :)   The auction ends July 25th and the winners and fundraiser results will be announced August 1st :) 

   


Be sure to share all of your Bloom-Topia finishes on social media with #bloomtopiaquiltalong!!!    I can't wait to see all of your quilt tops!!!!   What an amazing QAL and here is to looking forward to 2021's Charity QAL!!!! 



And just to make it easy to find . . . Here is a list of all the places to find my alterations

Thanks for popping in today ;)  I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Day!!
