The Payoff and NTT

Welcome to Needle and Thread Thursday, y'all!  I cannot tell you how excited I am to share this finished quilt top with you today.  After all these weeks of scrappy improv sewing, it feels so good to finally see my vision turned into a reality.

Other than getting this quilt top finished, I've been prepping to teach the Minnesota Quilters (leaving bright and early tomorrow morning!).  I've never been to Minnesota, and I can't wait to visit!  

We've also been gearing up for my son's SENIOR year of high school!  I don't know how we got here so fast, but I'm going to treasure every single moment and all the "lasts." I know this year is going to fly by.

While I'm waiting in airports and hanging in my hotel over the next few days, you know I'm going to love seeing all of the pretty things linked up!  Before we party, check out some of my favorites from last week. Sew Preeti Quilts shared this gorgeous quilt-

This unique piece is by LeeAnna at Not Afraid of Color-

And this cute quilt is by Quilting Gail-

Okay friends!  I can't wait to see what you've been working on this week!  It's time to party!

  1. Ooh, nice! I love it! --Anne-Marie at Stories from the Sewing Room

  2. Love the swirly rainbow galaxy, Kelly!!! Thanks for sharing your trunk show at Minnesota Quilters Thursday evening, and again on Saturday! It was awesome to hear all of your quilt stories!!!

  3. Absolutely beautiful scrappiness! Thanks so much for sharing

  4. Kelly, I so enjoyed you quilts and lecture last night. I’m excited to try your techniques with my mountain of scraps. Thanks for coming to Minnesota

  5. Another pretty quilt top you have made. Wishing you a safe and wonderful time at the Minnesota Quilters.

  6. Your scrappy quilt is beautiful! Great colors. As is Preeti's quilt. I love it when quilters use bright colors in their quilts. I need to get back to more machine sewing and quilting. This has been a summer of handwork, and I'm just about over it! Hope you have a great time in Minnesota. It's a good place to visit in the summer! (Winter, not so much.)

  7. Hope you had a fabulous time in Minnesota. Congrats on getting your top done. It really shines. I agree with Flourishing Palms -- I really like bright colors in quilts. And, yes, this next year will zoom by -- but it seems to me all of them have been recently.

  8. Oh I love your swirly rainbow quilt top! It just sings out all those colours and scraps. A perfect example of how all those different fabrics come together and play nicely.


Thanks so much for your comment and for visiting! I read and appreciate every single comment, and I reply to each one as soon as I can. If you don't hear back from me, you might be a no-reply blogger. :)
