TGIFF!/Finish It Up Friday - Survivor Quilt

It's officially D.O.N.E. :-)  I'm so excited over this project, I could do cartwheels (but I won't... lol).

Sorry for the cruddy picture!  Hubby took it on my phone for me as my point-and-shoot camera has gone AWOL somewhere in my craft cave.  Not to mention, it was 8:30 at night and it had already gotten dark out. 

I am IN LOVE with this quilt.  From the fabric, to the thickness, to the softness, to how the seams ragged... I just LOVE IT!!  I was truly worried that the black/grey squares would be over-powering on this, but with the backing being grey, the contrast in the seams really makes it blend together well.  Honestly, if I would have done my original plan and did it all in purple... it would probably have looked like a hot mess.

After showing it to my mom, she hinted around that my grandmother would like one of these as well. She's a colon cancer survivor and her favorite color is purple as well.  We'll see.  I've got a bunch of other projects I'd like to start first before tackling another one of these.  I've got the "pattern" I designed saved on my computer, so who knows... maybe for Christmas this year :-)

  1. Wow, Jess! This is such a snugly looking finish! And you designed it yourself? Love it! Making one for your grandmother for Christmas would be sweet. She sure would appreciate it! Meanwhile.... I can't wait to see what you have planned next!

  2. Love your rag quilt, are those embroidery's or fussy cut fabric?

  3. Super work, lovely colour scheme, you deserve to feel proud!

  4. This is wonderful - I'm a big fan of purple and it looks so cozy! Cartwheels indeed! Thanks for your blog visits the last few days too.

  5. This is stunning - you were so quick too! TFS

  6. Yay! Look how amazing this is! And I think the gray/black is totally awesome.

  7. A lovely quilt - have never made one of these ... looks really effective! Was it tricky?

    1. Thank you!! It was actually quite easy. Hardest part was honestly cutting all the seams, but even that wasn't that bad :-)
