TGIFF is Here!

Welcome to TGIFF friends!  I'm so excited to be hosting this week.  Whew!  This week has been a whirlwind and I am SO glad to have made it to Friday!  I've been working on this queen sized quilt for the past week, and I managed to finish up the top.


This quilt will be a gift for someone in my family who just loves Mardi Gras.  Louisiana is one of the only places I can think of where vibrant greens, purples, and golden yellows are considered to be perfectly matched.  I'm not saying that we all decorate our houses with these super bright colors or anything, but we do love them when Mardi Gras rolls around.

I decided to use slightly muted tones of these colors in the quilt, but it's still vibrant enough to be fun and fresh.  Because the quilt is so big I kept the pattern simple.



Now it's your turn to show off your finish for this week!  Just be sure your post includes a TGIFF button or text link back to the party so others can find it too!  Oh, and be sure to spread around plenty of comment love!  And if you missed Needle and Thread Thursday yesterday, hop over and link up there too.  It's still open through today!

  6. I love your quilt. Anything with purple appeals to me. I've been combining it with pinks and oranges lately, but your colour combo looks great too.
