TGIFF: September Windmills

I think it's important when teaching a monthly quilt class to have the next month's sample complete, and the pattern available. Cathy has done a wonderful job of having patterns available -- in fact, the patterns for the entire year are already on the wall at Ruth's Stitchery!

So far this year, I've always managed to have the sample for the following month pieced, quilted and bound before class. It was pretty close for the September Jelly Roll Party sample. I finished it July 31, and the August Jelly Roll Party was August 2.

September's quilt will be a "Just One Jelly Roll" pattern by Pam & Nicky Lintott. It's called "Windmills," and it finished at 59" x 75." I used a Moda jelly roll of "Blueberry Crumb Cake." When this fabric first came out, my friend Terry and I raced each other to complete our collections of the line!

Here it is, Quilt #29 for 2013:

I did a widely-spaced 'loops and swirls' quilting on it and used my favorite summer-weight batting, Katadan Summer Cotton, from the Idaho Quilt Barn.

Linking up to "Can I Get a Whoop Whoop?" at Confessions of a Fabric Addict (because I totally think I deserve it):

As well as "Thank Goodness It's Finally Finished Friday" (as I said at bedtime when I finally finished this quilt!) hosted this week by Amanda at BedTime Quilting:
