Waiting For the Right Fabrics and NTT

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, friends!  I have a brand new quilt top to share with you today, and I am so very excited about it.  I designed this pattern over two years ago and at the time, I had a very specific feel in mind for this quilt.  I really wanted the fabrics to have a certain vibe, and I couldn't immediately find a collection that felt right.  So, the pattern stayed in my design folder where I kind of forgot about it for awhile.

When I saw the 365 Fifth Avenue collection by Bari J, I started thinking about a quilt pattern for them, and when I stumbled across this one in my design folder, I knew right away it would be a perfect marriage of fabric and pattern.  Now that the quilt top is all put together, it's clear that it was totally worth the two year wait.

This is move-in week for my father-in-law, so helping him get all settled will be my priority for the next week, but I'm going to get this quilt finished as soon as I can.  After two years, what's another week, right?

Before we party, check out the highlights from last week.  This quilt by Nancy at Grace and Peace Quilting is so lovely.  I can't resist a quilt photographed in a beautiful setting.

This rainbow beauty is by Julie's Quilts and Costumes-

Sandra at mmm! Quilts showed off this fun quilt-

And Nettie Sews and Lucky Quilts linked up this sweet baby quilt-

Okay, y'all!  I can't wait to see what you're working on this week.  It's time to party!

  1. Beautiful quilt top! I heart the colors and shapes! Best wishes getting your FIL settled in. And thank you for featuring my Arrow Point Path quilt!

  2. The shape of each block/color is so pretty....very elegant. This pattern would work in so many colorways! Thank you for sharing!

  3. Beautiful quilt top! Love the fabric collection. Yes, it was well worth the wait. Thanks for the party - love seeing everyone else's work.

  4. Congrats on finally finding the right fabric for that quilt design, Kelly!

  5. I can’t wait to see your published pattern

  6. Congrats on your long-awaited, finally finished quilt top, Kelly! I love it! Have you named this one yet (or did I just miss the name in my not-yet-fully-caffeinated morning fog)? I hope all goes smoothly with your FIL's move. Have a great week!

  7. Well worth the wait and another week is nothing after two years! I'm sure your father in-law will be happy to finally be settled in!

  8. Had to blow this up to sneak a peak - you mentioned snowballs, did you do that for all the corners here? I can hardly wait for the reveal! And the picture at the bridge! Stunning (and I little scary!) And thanks for the lighthearted approach as you move forward one step at a time.
    p. s. I am not a blogger - how do I change the icon?

  9. Wow 2 years! but you are right, totally worth it, well done.

  10. Your quilt is lovely! Do you have a name for it? Quilting it should be fun. I'm thrilled to have a finish to share, but I'm hoping it's my last finish for 2020. Honestly, I don't need one more quilt!

  11. Oops. Sorry I was late. Missed your linky.
