I finished something!!

Well it is my VERY FIRST EVER DONE PROJECT!!! YUP!! Till now I have only been a piecer! Well for the first several months of this journey I had only worked on Jane pieces! So, I did not branch out to other things till well, till I started doing the QuiltUberFest!! (that was in October) So! I had participated in a fall fabric swap and I pulled out some of them and used a disappearing nine patch pattern. I didn't really use a pattern I just kind of winged it! LOL! 
I am also not very comfortable with my FMQ skills so I just did simple lines!

 When I was done with it my dear son asked what it was for! I said nothing and he was confused! Oh, well! He actually likes the back better than the front! And to be truthful I am kind of that simple gal myself! I know, I know it is blue! But to be honest because I was only doing this ad a just because and had no real plan for it this was the material I had an abundance of! So that is what I used! I do like the combo of colours! even if the back is blue! I will find the right person who will like it!

I like a little something on the back and don't want it to be just plain material so I did a coin strip down the center of the back! I like it!


  1. I think it's great. It could be used as a table runner, or wall hanging, or on top of a dresser. It's very cheery. Congrats on your finish.

  2. Woo hoo! Congrats on your first finish! It looks great! I love the way you did the back with the coin strip in the center... and now it's reversible too! :)

  3. What a great runner and sometimes it is soooo much fun to work with bright fabrics, I love it!

  4. And a wonderful finish it is! So, you have only been a piecer, I like that, sounds like me. :)
