Facet+Plus QAL…the ‘Real Life Edition’ and Giveaway

Welcome back everyone for the last post in the Facet+Plus Quilt Along. Did you happen to finish your quilt? No…well me either. That is why I titled this post the ‘Real Life Edition.’ I had big plans to reveal this quilt all quilted and bound, but that did not happen and that is okay! But hey, lets have a giveaway anyway, because progress is progress!

Before I reveal my F+P QAL WIP, lets have a little bit of a blog hop. I am completely honored that these ladies (and a few more that aren’t’ listed) decided to quilt along with me. And each quilter put her own spin on the pattern which is so lovely. Take a few moments, if you would like, to check out their progress and comment on their wonderful work. *I will update the following list on Monday, September 19th 2016 if anyone happens to write a post that day.* **Post links have been updated!**

**Amanda @Gypsy Moon Quilt Co. (all of her fabric is up-cycled and so gorgeous!)

Sharon @Yellow Cat Quilts (with more progress pictures on her Instagram feed)

Sue @Seven Oaks Street Quilts (wow, do I ever love that black background)

**Tami @Sew Much for Free Time (wonderful use of diagonal color)

So onto the WIP reveal…

I have my quilt sandwiched and spray basted with about 1/5th of the quilting finished. I used Chasing Butterflies by Lizzy House in grape fizz (lighter purple) and it is gorgeous for the backing.
I chose to section the quilt into unequal quadrants on the diagonal and then echo each section using lines 1/2″ apart. I was going great guns and then my quilting-jo disappeared along with my free-time.
I plan to bind the quilt using Mini-Pearl Bracelets by Lizzy House in grape and am quilting the top using Wonderfil Konfetti Col. KT614 (light purple). Wonderfil Konfetti is my favorite thread to machine quilt quilts on my domestic machine.

And here it is, the giveaway as promised. You can see that I am a little obsessed with low-volume backgrounds so I wanted to pass on the love. I have also included a few other lovelies as well. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this blog post. If you happen to be a no-reply blogger, please leave some way that I can reach you (either email address, Instagram handle or your blog URL). The winner will be chosen Wednesday, September 21st 2016 and announced here!


Thank you for joining me on this QAL adventure!

    1. Thanks Ioleen for stopping by! I signed up for two more QALs and didn’t even start either of them. I think I would like to give Quilty Habit’s Star Light/Star Dark QAL a go, it looks fabulous. Cheers!


  2. I’ve been following along as everyone has been making their quilts. It’s been fun to watch them come together. Funny how real life has a way of stepping in and changing up our plans. Your top looks great! I think the grape binding will look great on this quilt top.

    1. Thanks Tish for your comment! Real life indeed intrudes on my crafting and changes my plans. Perhaps I might have to change my expectations of myself. Cheers!


  3. I have printed out the Facet +Plus quilt pattern. I have really enjoyed your QAL and am hoping there will be another one. You have done an amazing job. Well written and easy to follow. I love your color choices . Thank you for the chance to try to win. There is nothing more exciting than seeing a nice squishy package in your mail box. Just brightens your day so much.

    1. Thank you Sandi for your comment! You are entered into the giveaway. I agree with you, squishy packages in the mail are wonderful. Cheers!


  4. I didn’t have time to participate but I’ve enjoyed following along. My sewjo left me this summer and I’m rushing to finish a sample this week for my Guild – if it wasn’t for the deadline I don’t know that I’d be sewing yet. I’m having to really push through this time which is unusual because I love the project and to sew! Anyways, all the quilts all looking beautiful so congrats to you and all the participants!!!

    1. Thank you Rebecca for your comment. I think you are a no-reply blogger and didn’t happen to leave any contact information so if you happen to see this before Wednesday, leave some way for me to contact you so that I can put your name in for the giveaway.

      I hope my sew-jo returns soon as well so I can get some more projects off my plate. Cheers!


  5. Fun!! Thanks for the blog love, lady! Well, I haven’t finished mine either (those will probably be my dying words) but I’ve made a lot of progress! Guess I’ll just have to write a post about it tomorrow. 😋 Your quilt looks so great and I love the scrappy background! Beautiful! 😍
