Bloom Bloom Pow: Show Off Your Finished Quilt!

It's time! Time to finish your Bloom Bloom Pow quilt and show it off! : )

I'm so pleased with how this quilt turned out! It really did come out exactly how I pictured it. That doesn't happen all that often. : )

And I want to thank everyone who quilted along with me! It made it even more fun than it would have been. 

And I am SO very impressed with the Bloom Bloom Pow quilts you guys have come up with! Here are just a few of the gorgeous quilts that have popped up in my Flickr group recently:

As always, I love seeing how a pattern of mine served as a jumping off point for others' creativity. : )

But of course, these aren't the only cool BBP quilts out there! Link up your own Bloom Bloom Pow quilt using the linky below. This way, we can all enjoy each others' creations! The linky will remain open indefinitely, so no worries about hurrying to finish. And your quilt doesn't even need to be completely finished in order to link up—I'll leave it up to you when in the process you link up. All I ask is that you link up ONLY ONE TIME. And yes, you can link to a Flickr photo if you don't have a blog!

Thank you again for making this quilt-along so much fun. Enjoy your Bloom Bloom Pow quilts!

Beautiful! And great photos too. Thank you again for hosting this QAL. And I also finally figured out how not to be a no reply blogger from one of your previous posts. So thank you for that too. :)

I love the pearl bracelets for the BBP! Looks terrific! This is def on my to do list! Are the instructions going to be available for a while?

It's great to see all those different variations. Good idea about the open linky!

OPQuilt said...

Lovely! I especially like seeing it outdoors as that tells me the long Wisconsin winter is over and you are fully into Spring. I've seen lots of these quilts in your Flickr group and around on the web, and I have to say I like the "trimmed off" edges the best. But maybe that's because I use my quilts, and I think varying edges are interesting, but not preferred (for me).

Bravo to you for another great project!

Oh, Ms. Midge! Wow! So gorgeous!

How fun to see my quilt up there! Thank you for the QAL, I had a great time from start to . . . well I'm working on that finish :-). I couldn't decide on the backing so I was up at SuperBuzzy (my LQS) with the top and we brainstormed some of my ideas for backing. I just really need that collaboration :-)!!

Karen said...

Love them all!!! It's on my to do list:)

A Quilter's Mission - Vicki said...

WOW, they are all wonderful! What a great pattern.

Kristy @ Quiet Play said...

Love seeing all the different quilts! thanks for hosting such a fun QA!

MsMidge said...

Oh how exciting! Thanks for sharing my quilt! This has been the best quilt along ever! Well it's my first! lol.

Jeneta said...

What a fantastic lineup! I am still always impressed at how different quilts can look when using the same pattern but different fabrics!

Pat said...

I love them all but I WANT your tree. It is the perfect place to show off a quilt.


It's so good to see so many different interpretations of the same pattern. It makes me think about how individual creativity is such a wonderful thing, and how different everyone's tastes are, and yet all look really fabulous. xCathy

Trish said...

They are all so gorgeous!! I am super jealous of the talent here!

Sarah said...

Oh they're all lovely, but Laurelar has nailed it! Those colour, that background, the clear sunny day, it's just perfection.
