Bikini: One Pattern, Three Quilts

fabricsandflowers.blogspot.com

Welcome to the last check in day of the Polka Dot Bikini Quilt-Along! Of course, I am so happy to finally show you my finished top. I show you some little peeks along the way, but wanted the final design to be  surprise. What do you think?
My wonderful sponsor, Canton Village Quilt Works is offering a $25 gift certificate to one reader today. Keep reading for details….

Is anyone else finished with their top? I would love to see what you are creating. Be sure and use #bikiniquilt on instagram or add to the Color Girl Quilts flickr group.

I have it basted and (fingers crossed) hope to have it quilted by the end of the QAL May 30th.

If  you were afraid of piecing curves before starting this quilt, you know by now that they are not difficult at all! This quilt will give you plenty of practice…and the results are so worth it.

I love how this new design is so different from the original:

and from the variation I designed for my mom to make:

Does this get you excited to make your own?  You can do it.

For a chance to win the $25 gift certificate to CVQW, leave a comment on this post telling me what you like best in the shop. For me it’s this Kaffe Fasset print. She also carries a kit for the Bikini Quilt, and a blogger bundle chosen by Me.

If you are working on a Bikini quilt, be sure and let me know in a second comment where I can find you to visit (blog, instagram, flickr, Facebook, etc), and do post a picture or entry about the Polka Dot Bikini.

Have a great weekend!

    Wish I’d known about your quilt along! I’m terrified of curves but I’m bookmarking your QAL so I can come back and try it again. I rather enjoy going back to old QAL and following along months later, you learn from everyones comments 🙂
