NTT and a New Quilt Top

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, friends.  First of all, I want to apologize for the hassle with the link last week.  Unfortunately, the issue was with the Linky Tools service, and my hands were tied.  I'm glad that it got fixed with a little bit of time left in the party.  Thanks so much for your patience, and a special thanks to those who were able to check back and link up after it was fixed.

I've been sewing a few Christmas odds and ends, including this Evergreen Patchwork pillow, as well as a fun quilt made with the bundle I showed last week.  I can't reveal it just yet, but be on the lookout tomorrow morning for the tutorial and a great giveaway.  I've also been working on a new quilt and pattern, and I just finished the top this afternoon!

I haven't completely decided on the name for this pattern, but I was thinking about calling it Filigree. The cross shape, as well as the twisted look of the dark and light within the quilt reminds me of metal work in jewelry.  This quilt is for my grandmother, who is redecorating a bedroom in her house.  I will see her at Christmas, so my plan is to get it finished so I can give it to her then.

Even though last week's party was almost derailed, it still wasn't a bust.  Though the links were few, they were magnificent!  Sew Preeti Quilts shared this happy, colorful Birch Trees quilt.

Teje at Nero's Post and Patch showed her progress on this beautiful wintry quilt.

And my, oh my!  This Shimmer quilt from Lorinda at Laurel and Pine is fabulous!

If you think that with about half of the usual links, I had an easier time choosing quilts to would be incorrect!  Y'all are just that awesome!

By the way, I hope that those of you who didn't get a chance to link last week will feel free to link more than one project to this week's party so we don't miss a thing.  Let's get down to it!

1.  You can link finished projects or WIP's , but just keep it about quilting and sewing!
2. Link to your specific post (not to your home page!) to make it easier for others.
3. Please remember to spread the word and post my button or a text link.  
4. Spread the comment love far and wide!

*Don't forget to stop by tomorrow morning to check out my new Christmas quilt tutorial and enter the giveaway!


  1. Love your quilt top. The name is very unique!

  2. Great quilt top. And a great name. Good luck finishing on time.

  3. Hi Kelly and thank you for featuring my North Star quilt top! It's finished now as you see. Your new quilt looks beautiful and the name is great! Your grandmother will love this. x Teje

    1. Teje, Your finished quilt top is beautiful and looks so great in your little Christmas corner!

  4. You've made a beautiful blue and white quilt. I love those colours, and have done a few myself. Just now I'm working on a mini mystery, and will link it up later today.

  5. Your quilt top is beautiful, Kelly. I counted 36 blocks, with four sub-blocks in each and each of those sub-blocks has three snowballed corners. I am exhausted already. How do you do it? I admit that I hate snowballing, because I do not have the patience for it.
    BTW, thank you for featuring my Birch quilt (blush)

    1. Your birch quilt is phenomenal, Preeti! Now I'm inspired to make a birch quilt of my own!

  6. Beautiful colours on your quilt. Your grandmother would love it!!


  7. Oh your new quilt top is so pretty!

  8. Thanks for featuring my Shimmer quilt, Kelly! I can't wait to give it to my dad at Christmas. And thank you for hosting the fun linky party every week. I love seeing what everyone else is up to!
