I had seen the Going Coastal line before - but I was browsing blogs the other night when I saw this pattern here which lead me to the designers blog here and to this pattern.
I love these colors - the Going Coastal pieces - I HAVE to make this quilt. So I set out looking for some of the fabrics. Hit a local quilt store that has most the line but no plaid, which in my opinion is the best part. But they did have these cute little 17 piece charm packs they had cut out of the line. Which I bought 3 off.
That night I quickly found several pieces from the Going Coastal line online and submitted my order - but what do to that night (this is last Friday) to get my fix. And let me tell you - it was a serious fix.
So I started this - and got the front minus the border done on Friday night...ok Saturday morning round 2am. (Mike...fabric bought on Friday and used in the same day - new record).
On Saturday it was raining here - what better way to use a rainy day then to finish up a quilt, right? So I got Sammy down for a nap - and Mike was laying with Jake. Jake didn't want to take a nap, but Mike did. So Jake and I went downstairs to quilt. As soon as Mike was asleep we snuck out to find a red stop border for the quilt. We are sneaky - no one ever knew we had left the house....
On Monday I received the plaid in the mail. The perfect plaid - 5 yards of this plaid. I have to make sure I don't run out anytime soon.
Tuesday I quickly turned the quilt into this....
I LOVE this plaid! I even got the back sewn together (its the cute bottle cap print) and have it on the quilting machine - which is where it has been since TUESDAY! No time to sew this week. So this long story short - this will be my Friday finish as I am going to get it quilted today....or maybe early Saturday morning like 2amish....
I'm still jonesing to make the Jack's Block quilt - so I think I'll buy the pattern since I have all the fabric now!
Linking up again this week to Whoop Whoop and Finish it up Friday
