Goldilocks

Remember the story of Goldilocks and the 3 Bears?  Everything came in threes and she explored their house trying each chair for softness and food for the right temperature.

I decided to call my latest finish Goldilocks because I used three different size blocks for the quilt.


I am just in love with this quilt!

I made it from odd sized leftover bits of fabric. The FMQ is a loop design and I'm so proud and happy of the job I did.  FMQ is a journey and this was the first time that I got the tension right.  The stitch length isn't consistent but the texture is amazing.

The middle border is pieces and I love the way it looks.


I pieced a bit of the back.  Pieced backs are not my usual thing but I'm happy with this one!

This quilt finishes at 60 x 66'' and is perfect for napping!


I'm busy working on a pattern for Goldilocks and can't wait to share!


Goldilocks will be linked up with Main Crush Monday's,   Freemotion by the River,   WIP Wednesday's,  Let's Bee SocialMidweek Makers.  Needle and Thread Thursdays, Finish it Up Friday and Finished or Not Friday.

Have a wonderful day! Patty

  13. Clever name for a very pretty quilt. You can always spot a Bonnie & Camille fabric line a mile away. Not sure which one this is, but I love it.
