Skipper Quilt Along: Week 8

Monday, April 22, 2019

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend!  We had my parents and nephew over for dinner last night and had a great time.  It was a busy weekend getting ready for that so I didn't get a chance to photograph my quilt top until this morning so I apologize this post is a little late.

Can you believe our Skipper Quilt Along is coming to an end?
It's week 8 and it's time to finish your quilt tops!

I will admit I was a little giddy when I finished sewing the last seam and pressing my finished quilt top on Saturday.  I am kind of smitten with it!  Love those Sweet Tea fabrics by Sweetwater!

(I had a little buddy during my photo shoot this morning, LOL!  That's Molly and she's my little sidekick.  She's such a lover and follows me around all day, every day!)

Anyways, the assignment for this week, to be clear, is to add the borders (finish your quilt top) and piece the back if necessary.  So I am off to find navy minky today!

Then, post a picture of your finished quilt top on Instagram by Sunday, April 28th at Noon MST.  Use the hashtag #skipperqal and tag me @gigis_thimble.  I will pick one person to win the grand prize -  FREE QUILTING for their Skipper quilt!  Barbara Eason of One Sweet Bee Designs has so generously offered to donate edge-to-edge quilting (medium density) to one winner (any size quilt!)  The winner will just have to pay for shipping (she lives in TX.), batting, and thread.  And to all the other participants she is offering 25% off the quilting on their Skipper Quilts!  You can follower her on Instagram @onesweetbeequilts.

I will announce the winner on Monday, April 29th here, on the blog, and on Instagram.
I hope to see lots of entries popping up!

Happy quilting!
