Faithful Finish

Faithful is finished, complete with a real label.  Faithful is the most recent Quilt Along from Lori at Humble Quilts. I love these simple little quilts.  I can't wait to hang it in my quilting room. I think I am going to search for some of her other Quilt Alongs, like Abundance and Mountain Trail.  The quilt isn't really wonky, it's laying on the pokey bush--perfect backdrop color.

The back is from a fat quarter that was part of a stack of fat quarters I won last year at the Chinese Auction at retreat.  Bless you my sweet friend Nadine for not wanting these any longer.  Simple (somewhat) straight line quilting is what my mini quilt wanted.

It's adorable.

I never think to make mini quilts, but I certainly have a lot of smaller components that could be turned into one or two.

You beat me done!!! Gotta clear some space to quilt mine. Too tiny to put on the mid/short arm. Love the backing. Pokey bush huh?? Loved this QAL.

Annie said...

Hooray a new finish! This pretty little quilt looks wonderful!

Lori said...

I LOVE it! It turned out lovely and the backing is so pretty!!

Is your background all white or off-white? It sorta' looks like it, and really makes the triangles pop. When using "busy" background fabrics, there is not the clear contrast that your block shows. I like the look!
Happy Quilting!

i agree with Jayne; the simplicity of your background fabrics really created a light and bright looking little gem of a quilt~!
well done.

Great colors, front and back! Very nice and the photo too, love it with the color of the bush. That light background is perfect. Well done!
