Pageant Highlight Reel / Beauties Pageant 19

I can’t recall the last time I could say this, but for the past week, I haven’t so much as touched my machine. It seems like a good day, then, to indulge in a look back at finishes friends have shared in the past few Beauties Pageants.

Here are four of my favorites ...

Cynthia over at Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework is the queen of scraps. Her postage stamp quilt is testimony to that. Click through to her site to see her quilting up close and personal.

Jayne, of Twiggy and Opal, also tackled a scrap project recently. I love how the disparate prints she uses are brought together by those repeating white circles. This one is going on my to-do list!

Anja, of Anja Quilts, kicked some free-motion-quilting butt on her latest pillow. The front is beautiful, but you need to click through to really appreciate her wishbone FMQ.

And Alison, who blogs at Little Bunny Quilts, turned the traditional churn dash block on its head with her Dashing to the Chapel pattern.

How about you? Did the past week provide the time to finish a project? Now’s your chance to tell us about it! (No judgment if you’re like me and need to live vicariously through other sewists’ work today.)

The pageant rules are simple:
  • Post your finish in the linky tool. (No links to your own giveaway or linky, please!)
  • Point your readers back here with a text link or use the button above.
  • Visit and comment on other participants’ finishes.
