Friday Finish -- Happy Quilt

I finally did it... I cut into my Happy Fabric Collection.

Every week, I work at a different quilt shop or quilt show. As you can imagine, the shopping can get out of control. I try to keep it in check, but sometimes fabric just follows me home. It might be a fat quarter or it might be a yard (or three!). I have a lot of Kaffe Fassett fabrics, as well as fabrics from Mark Lipinski and Joel Dewberry. The fabrics are not made to go together, but since they all make me happy, they have become my Happy Fabric Collection.

A year ago or so, I saw the New Wave patter on the Oh, Fransson! blog and knew this was the perfect quilt for my fabric collection. I started the quilt, and as usual, did not finish it.

Late yesterday afternoon, I realized that I had no finished quilt to show this Friday. New Wave was quilted, but the binding needed to be hand-stitched. I messaged my husband that it would be a great night to watch a movie or something. I stayed up past my bedtime, but this quilt is Finished by Friday:

I have no idea what I am going to do with this quilt, but it is on display in my living room until I decide.

Check out what others have Finished for Friday!

And remember to spend some time checking out my quilt videos:
