TGIFF - A Linky Party!

Thursday, May 25, 2017

Welcome to TGIFF (Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday)!!

Today is my very first time hosting TGIFF and my very first linky party! (I'm crossing my fingers it works!)

I have two finishes that I'm sharing this week - both for my local quilt shop's Row by Row! I shared the finishes on Monday in separate posts, but finishes are always worth celebrating!

First is a mini quilt I made using the shop's fabric license plate.

It was a quick make, and a perfect fit for this year's Row by Row theme, "On the Go!" Read more about the quilt on this post.

My second finish is a baby quilt using the shop's Row pattern. This is my second year writing the pattern for their Row, and I wanted to show the Row used in a different way.

This one truly got the "Thank Goodness It's Finished" stamp when it was done!!

The cross-hatch quilting in the Row section took much longer than I anticipated!

I don't normally add embellishments to my quilts either, so adding the wheels, eyes, and chain took time I wasn't expecting.

It needs a "This took forever!" tag! You can read more about the quilt on this post.

So what have you finished lately? Link up a blog post (or even an Instagram post!) so we can celebrate with you! Remember, it's not a party if you don't mingle with your friends! Be sure to visit and comment on a few of the other posts too!

  8. Thank you for hosting TGIFF this week - it looks perfect. :) The cross hatch quilting looks great on the finish, but I can only imagine how much work it was to do it.

  9. Thanks for hosting a link party! The crosshatch on your baby quilt looks perfect, but I can imagine it took forever. But it's so adorable!
