kid potential

Welcome to finish it up Friday!
I have a quilt in the March/April issue of Quilty! They called it Kid Potential...but in my mind it will always be 'end of the line'. That's what I called it for the past 2+ years when it was a WIP. :) Whatever the name, it's all about using up those scraps! The finished size is 41" x 56"...so those scraps are pretty tiny. Just the way I like it!
When I was snapping photos, I happened to notice that it looks pretty wonderful with my choose joy pillow! Love it when that happens! Anyway, having to meet the deadline for publication was the perfect push I needed to turn this WIP into a finished quilt. Hurray for finishing!
 
How about you? Please link up your finishes for the week. Thank you for joining me for finish it up Friday! I so appreciate it!

Super cute!! I love Quilty! Won't this be your second quilt for them? So exciting! Have a great weekend!

Lynn Harris said...

It's lovely. I love the controlled color in that quilt. I also have a weakness for small scraps.

Lauren Deel said...

I just received my Quilty mag in the mail two days ago, and .... your quilt is my absolute favorite! I loved it, said to myself, "This looks like it belongs in "Sunday Morning Quilts" and THEN I saw your name as the author and thought, "Of course." Many thanks for this pattern - I'll be sure to use it... hopefully soon!

That is a super cute quilt. And you're right, it's the perfect match for your Joy pillow.

Thanks for hosting again this week. I love seeing other people's finishes. And it helps motivate me to get at least one project finished so that I can share too.

fun quilt and I do love the Choose Joy pillow. My mom put up a little tile the said 'because nice matters'. She said she needed the reminder when she would get frustrated with dad. I think I need BOTH signs!

Kat said...

Great scrappy design! I may have to make one of those soon :)

Kat said...

PS- End of the Line is totally the perfect name for it, you're right.

JHNickodemus said...

Wow! That is beautiful! I love the bright colors! I'm so impressed with how they all work together for the whole look and don't seem to compete with each other. I think that's what scares me about scrappy quilts.

Ann said...

Another fantastic Amanda quilt! Love it. A lot.

Quilt n Queen said...

I picked up that copy of Quilty and loved that quilt but didn't notice it was yours. My bad. Just looking at pretty pictures! Congratulations.

Love it! I also think 'End of the Line' is a much better name for it.
Happy Friday!

I'm not about to finish anything major in the near future :( love the quilt, nice to see all those odds and ends put to fabulous use

Tina Craig said...

I like your working title better for your scrappy quilt! I love a good deadline to get things finished. Somehow, I've been motivated to finish WIPs even without a deadline. I'm crediting my doctor and the mega dose of vitamin D he prescribed!

Karen said...

This quilt is amazing! I don't have the patience for such tiny pieces, but the results are fantastic!

Beth said...

Looks great with your joy pillow.

Great job on the scrappy quilt. Beautiful.

Thank you for the Finish up Friday feature. It is a growing list and I make the time during my week to view each participant.

Thanks

Suzanne said...

Of course you have quilts that we all don't know about but it's so exciting when they get the grand reveal. I can't believe how small these pieces are. Precious pieces.

Karen Sue said...

I love this quilt!! I keep enlarging my 'scrap box' to bigger and then filling it up. It's a great place to dig for applique pieces and I could so see this quilt happening in my house! Thanks for inspiring us :o)
