a quilter's palette complete

Welcome to finish it up Friday! Did you know that I started this link up party exactly 5 years ago today?!?!?! That's. so. crazy!!!! I'm so thankful for it, or who knows how many WIPs I'd have today. Accountability is a great thing! Thank you for sticking with me for that long!
I have another quilt finish today! This pattern is A Quilter's Palette, by the lovely Rita of Red Pepper Quilts. This was a fun quilt to make! I loved digging in the scrap bins and building the blocks one at a time. My friend Brianne and I swapped scraps for some of the blocks, which was very helpful!
I don't often use blue or purple in my quilts, but somehow I still have scraps of those colors. I like what they add to this quilt! It feels good to branch out once in awhile.
I did a simple stipple all over in Auriful 2600, which has to be the most perfect thread color ever. I love it because it blends in with everything and it works so well in my Juki.
These blocks are great for fussy cuts. The butterfly block is one of my favorite parts of the whole quilt.
For the backing I used a fabric I had set aside for making a washi dress. I couldn't see myself wearing this color, and I had JUST enough (within inches) to back the quilt. I figured it was meant to be! The binding is the same fabric that I used on my last quilt finish. (The print is Citrus by Another Point of View for Windham fabrics.)
The quilt measures about 48" x 62". This is scrap project #184! This finish brings my WIP list down to 9! I'm quite excited about that!
Speaking of washi dresses....I spent last Saturday sewing up my third dress using that pattern. The fabric is chambray dots in indigo by Robert Kaufman. It makes a lovely garment! I'm fairly certain that this one will get a lot of wear.
 
How about a giveaway today? If you leave a comment in this post or if you link up today (or both!), your name will be thrown into a virtual hat. I will pick 5 winners that will receive 5 of my PDF patterns of your choice. I'll pick winners on Monday! I know I say it all the time, but I really mean it. Thank you for joining me for finish it up Friday!

I love Finish up Friday and I love giveaways! I may even love you, in a totally non creepy way�� You are so inspiring-that's how I love you.

Denise Russell said...

OMGoodness! I love that quilt! How fun that you got to swap scraps with your friend. This would be a perfect pattern for a round robin with friends, I think. Question: how much sleep do you manage to get a day? Or you are a super fast quilter!!!

Sharon Tucker said...

I Love this Quilter's Palette pattern...so beautiful in rainbow colors! and those cute little bees in the same section as the butterfly...love it all!

Bernie Kringel said...

Love the Washi dress. The second time I made the dress, I also used the simpler neckline which made for a simpler project. The dotted fabric is adorable.

Crystal_235 said...

I love the quilt!! I'll be adding that to my list of quilts I want to make.

Linda said...

As always, your finishes are great. I love to read your blog and I hope you continue it for another 5 years (and another after that!).

Vicki W. said...

That Washi dress looks perfect. I'm so intimidated by garment sewing, but I feel like maybe I should just put my big girl pants on and jump in!

Michelle said...

One of these days I will join in on Finish It Up Friday! I don't have too many WIPs but enough that I could use the motivation. *sigh* When my kids are older I will have plenty of sewing time.

Lynda said...

I have bins of scraps and the quilt you have featured here would help make a slight dent in them - I just need to get it done! Meanwhile, I am working on my sweet tooth project (and collecting more scraps)......

beth s said...

Beautiful quilt! and....I'm inspired to make a DRESS!

Geneva Bear said...

WIP down to 9! That's amazing! Seriously. Because you used to have the most WIP that I've ever heard of anyone having!๐Ÿ˜Š I'd love to win ;)

Gail Sheppard said...

I love how this quilt is so clean and fresh looking! And it's using scraps ... LOVE IT!!!

I love your blog! I always look forward to your Friday finishes! Have a great weekend!

Darlene said...

I love your quilt style, the brighter and scrappier the better. The dress is great. I quit garment sewing and moved on to quilting but have been thinking I need to revisit clothes sewing. Keep on blogging. Darlene

Little Black Cat Quilting said...

Such a lovely finish! I love the I spy feel of all those blocks, such fun fabrics!

Allison said...

I'm not usually into the super-scrappy look, but you've pulled it together brilliantly!

Leanne Parsons said...

Congratulations on 5 years of Finish it up Friday! Your quilt is beautiful and the dress looks so pretty. I'm still a novice at making clothes, but I'd love to make more.

Lynn Palmer said...

Lovely quilt, such pretty colours. I couldn't have imagined the backing as a dress, but I adore the blue dress, great to dress up or down.

April Mae said...

Yea for finishing projects! Meggan loved the Washi dress and made herself a washi dress this summer as her 4-H clothing project.

Jay & Heather said...

You are an amazing quilter! Thanks for all the inspiration...though I may never finish all that I start

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

I love your quilt! And I love that it uses scraps by color way. I will have to do something like this soon to use up some of the scraps I have.

Laura said...

The quilt is fabulous. I definitely want to make it, and I have the scraps to do so!

Julie Bagamary said...

The quilt is so wonderful with such variety in fabrics. The butterfly caught my eye first.

Schulz Family said...

congratulations on sticking to a link up for five years. I have loved it as it has also motivated me to finish - something I am traditionally terrible at!. The quilt you have done has inspired me. I am going to pull out my scraps today and sort it into colours. It will be a lot darker but at least it will be another quilt for the orphanage I support. I have always been meaning to make a washi dress but never have. They look so comfy. Thanks for the opportunity to win . karen.schulz@paradise.net.nz

m. a. palermo said...

I count on being inspired as I read your blog, and the lovely link-ups on Friday. Since you are also a knitter, I find the sock posts extra fun! On my way to knitting my first pair of socks!

Megan said...

What a lovely quilt! And I just love those washi dresses!! I would like to try my hands at sewing one, but then I'd be afraid of ruining my fabric (I haven't done many clothes before).

mindingmomma said...

Happy 5th-aversaary! I don't have a finish today, as I am all packed up for quilt retreat tomorrow! I hope to have several small projects to show next week. Thanks for the chance to win.

Happy 5th Blogversary! I was inspired to start my blog after reading yours. I linked up with Friday Finish for the first time on June 7, 2013. I don't always have a finish on Friday but I am always pushing myself to sew toward a link up on Friday.
Thanks for the linky parties!

Jenny said...

5 year anniversary - congratulations. I love your Finish it Up Friday blog (your other posts too of course) and I'm sure, like many, it is the highlight of my weekend. I get to sit down, with a coffee, and read what everyone has been doing. Sometimes I have a finish to share too.

Your blog is so inspirational, and I appreciate the time and effort you make for the quilting community. Thanks so much!!!

Jenny from New Zealand.

Crazy Red Quilts said...

I love how the citrus yellow, orange, and green give the quilt a huge punch of colour. A perfect quilt to take on a summer picnic.

Eliza said...

I am starting new blouses for the season and will hopefully finish them quickly

Material Girl said...

I love the blocks of color in that quilt. I made " spools" using strips of color in teeny bands and just love it. I guess it falls into the scrappy category which I favor! I am working on ANOTHER scrap quilt right now. I don't understand why I can make so many scrappiest and have SO much scrap fabric.....

Gloria Cotten said...

THis is such a lovely quilt! I saw Denise Russell's comment suggesting using this pattern for a round robin among friends. What fun that would be! I intend to bring it up with my quilting buddies. Thanks! cotten.gloria@gmail.cm

Karen Mc said...

I have loved checking in on Fridays for the last 4 years! Yikes! You have been so helpful to many of us beginners. I don't think I would have stuck with quilting if I had not found your blog. Thank you so much.

Kristy said...

I love your newest quilt. I have learned so much from you these last 3 years I think it is. I am so much more confident about putting my scraps together and trying to use them up more than I had in the past. I love your Friday linky party. It is something I savor during the week. Thanks for inspiring us. K- likw2x6-apq@yahoo.com

Kate said...

I was going to say that 5 years is a long time, but I'm convinced that there is such a thing as blog time, which seems to move at a faster rate than normal time. Congrats on your 5 year anniversary for Finish it up Friday. Congrats on a beautiful finish and on just having 9 WIPs. Definitely cause for celebration.

Stephanie Cross said...

Springtime in autumn.... beautiful!

Subee said...

I love your use off all colors in this scrappy quilt....such a happy quilt! I see. You are hooked on the washi dress, too. Have you used the hack for the 3/4 sleeves yet? I have not and wondered how it works out.

I just love the design of this quilt. What a great way to showcase scraps. I struggle to find lower volume fabrics in my stash, so that's something I'm working on. Thanks for always sharing. It is so motivating!

liniecat said...

I truly adore this quilt, its so fresh and cheery, as much the fabric mix as the fresh clean design itself.
Its a 'happy' quilt somehow if that makes sense lol it simply makes me want to smile!
And the dotty fabric is perfect for the washi dress cum top!
I do like that design very much :)

Carolyn Jones said...

The quilt is beautiful - great finish!!! The only thing I finished this week was a trip to the beach, could have stayed a while longer :)

elively said...

Love your quilt! And the dress looks like it should be just right for so many things! I really enjoy reading your blog. Keeps me working on my UFOs.

Thanks for your never-ending inspiration to sew scrappy!

Love the a quilter's palette. I have so many 2.5 squares which I think would be perfect. Getting them into color groups would not be quick.
Thank you.

I'm off to sort my scraps! :-D

Kay Nelson said...

Love this quilt cuz it's organized and scrappy! It would be good for a Leader ender project!!!! You are my favorite blogger!

Sherry said...

I do like this. Very good selection of fabrics and tone. My only finish this week was to actually practice my FMQ skills. I started a class last week and decided I'd better sit down at the machine and just DO IT. I strip pieced some fabric (actually 2 pieces) and did a different design on each panel. I'll turn it into a pillow. I just hate letting any sewing time not produce a functional item.

Ada Shave said...

Love the quilt

Dee said...

I love the colors. I wish I had a bigger stash to pick from. I've only been quilting for 2 years and I suppose I'll just HAVE to bite the bullet and buy some more fabric...poor me!

blossom said...

Thanks for showing us your finishes! LOVE!

Gale said...

Beautiful quilts and lovely dress. Thanks for your generous giveaway.

KerryQ said...

I think you buried the lead! I love that dress! I have never really been drawn to Washi dresses, maybe because they're often done in girlie fabrics. I love yours, and would wear it out! Great job!

sharon parker said...

YES!!! The perfect pattern to whittle down my 2 1/2" squares. I love it. Thank you for "A Quilter's Palette"

Barbara Sutcliffe said...

I love seeing your quilts and being inspired to do something with my own fabric stash.

Mary Howland said...

Thanks for sharing all you do with fabric. The dress looks like it would be easy to wear with a shrug on cooler days. I love all your little pieces and use of scraps.

Judy said...

I love the quilt! I'd love to have so many scraps to work with. I better get making, eh? That washi dress is a great pattern and looks great in that fabric.

asteride said...

Lovely blog! I just arrived here by chance following some pincushions made of scraps from blog to blog.... going to browse through your older posts and try to learn something new!

Kathleen C said...

Your quilt is gorgeous! And I love your dress! Little lovely polka dots. And your stippling is getting more and more beautiful with every quilt!

Amanda J said...

Your quilt is beautiful. Love the colours! Would love to make a washi dress one day :)

Donna J said...

Happy link anniversary. I don't blog but I follow quite a few regularly. Yours is at the top of my list : )

I love finish it up Friday! Congratulations on five years. It has brought me much joy. I only lurk right now, as I read it while breastfeeding my baby, but I really love seeing what you are able to do each week. Beautiful quilt! And i love the fabric you chose for the dress.

Carol Andrews said...

Thank you for being such an inspiration! I have only 3 WIP's now. I made myself not start any new projects when I counted and found there were 14 WIPs on my shelf! Now I think I need to sort through the scrap bin to make a palette quilt. I think with only 3 WIPs I can be allowed to start a new one since all I have to do that is new is prepare course materials for a Quilting Course I will be teaching! I feel like I earned the right! Hee Hee. Love your Finish it Up Friday's. The giveaways are great, too!

I love all those bright colors. Makes me smile. And the washi dress looks fab in that fabric. I would make myself one but I am not great at clothes sewing and the ones on Etsy are very pricey. Wow, oly 9 UFO's left. I need to set that goal for myself. Have a great weekend.

The colors in your quilt make me smile. I'm inspired to go make a few blocks of my own today!

I wish I could get up the courage to make a dress or a cute top. The quilt is lovely, too. I like the butterfly.
