Welcome to Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday! I'm glad you're here and I'm looking forward to seeing all the finishes you have to share 😊
I have a quick finish to share this week...well, a finished quilt top, at least. The quilting part will have to wait until sometime in the new year. The top itself took me about a week to finish, which I'm pretty sure is a record for me.
I'm not sure what to name this quilt. I had been calling it Strippy Pinwheels, which didn't really inspire me, but I needed to call it something. Then a friend said it reminded her of windmills and when I looked at it after that all I could see was wind turbines arranged in rows, which gave me the name Wind Farm. I'm still not sure it's right, though. Any thoughts? Let me know if you have a suggestion for a better name, or if you think I should go with Wind Farm or Strippy Pinwheels. I need all the help I can get with naming this one!
This will be a free pattern for all subscribers to my newsletter, The Bulletin, so be sure to sign up to get your copy when it's available. I've sent the pattern out to be tested, but with the Christmas season upon us, I'm not asking for a fast turnaround. The pattern will hopefully be available before the end of January. In the meantime, each issue of the Bulletin is published on the 16th of every month and has a family favourite recipe (I love to cook and bake almost as much as I love to sew 😊) and a themed roundup of fun things to make along with news from here at Devoted Quilter.
I must not have been paying close attention when I was cutting out my strips because one fat quarter was cut with the selvedges included in the length. I didn't realize it until I started piecing blocks, at which point I decided to just use those strips anyway. You can see a couple of them peeking out in this picture. It was a very pretty selvedge, so I didn't mind it sneaking into the quilt.
