finish it up Friday, week 19

Welcome to finish it up Friday! I hope you are having a productive week!

I have no finish to share, but I did start one of the two quilt tops I was hoping to get finished this week.
I'm starting with this beautiful stack of organic fabric from Birch Fabrics. This is all from the Mod basics line. It is oh-so-lovely! The teal is going to be the background. The lime will be the backing.
Look at those dots! They are so, so good!
I'm making traditional rolling stone blocks. The dark background is a stretch for me. But I'm liking it!
The blocks are about 15". It's fun making bigger blocks! They go together pretty fast. I've got 3 of the 12 done. I'm still hoping to get the entire quilt top done this week....but we shall see! After all, it IS spring break. :)

How about you? Do you have a finish to share? If you do, please link up! Happy Friday to you!

I have enjoy much basic fabric design lately! What is the blue you have for this new quilt? Looks so coordinate with the green.

Terriaw said...

Love the dotted fabrics! And I love the way you paired them with the gorgeous solid teal color to make a very interesting block.

I'm happy to report I had a very productive week - I finished two velveteen zipper pouches, a ticker tape quilt, and just released my first sewing pattern. And I managed to blog about all of them - Woohoo!

I was hoping to have a finish to share but instead have a broken sewing machine :-( your rolling stone block is great, love all the dotty fabrics!

As of right now, I am not finished with the quilt I had hoped, BUT, instead of quilting I am online. :) I am sure I will have it done by tonight or tomorrow. So sad that Spring Break is almost over

Mama Pea said...

That teal background is going to be just fabulous for all those polka dots!

Georgia said...

I've been admiring the rolling stone block for a while now too. It kind of reminded me of that Denyse Schmidt pattern from a couple of years ago (Cog? Cog and something?), but waaaay easier and more do-able for me! I love your version - a LOT.

Anne said...

I LOVE IT! It is going to be fantastic. I can't wait to see the finished product.

Shed said...

Organic fabric design from all mod basics lines.It look so beautiful.This fabric designs are so interesting.It really great look.

Franziska said...

I like the dots fabrics a lot. That's something for my stash as well.
I also like that you chose a dark background fabric (other than grey for example). I didn't use such a colour yet but I think it's worth a try.

Rachel said...

Wow, (I am a little behind on reading blogs...LOL) LOVE the dots, the colors and the block. Very tempting to fully COPY it all...LOL...Seriously, I fell instantly in love.

Rene' said...

Great blocks. I love the blue and green solids you've chosen.

trish @ notes of sincerity said...

I really really love this block and wondered if you might direct me to the pattern. I found one on line that was paper pieced, but wondered if there was another one. :o)
