Believe it or not but it's already Friday and in Blogland that can only mean one thing - TGIFF. This week I'll be hosting as M-R and Laura attend to other matters but, luckily for me, I've had a finish lying around for weeks that I've been meaning to blog about but... well... yeah.
Regular readers may remember my unfinished ticker tape doll quilt from this post. Back then I was feeling rather distressed about the way the pieces had started to angle towards one corner but after a few nice comments and some kicks in the backside to just get it done I finally forged ahead.
The great thing about this style of quilt is that it is a fantastic scrap buster. It also is rather quick and easy as it uses the QAYG (quilt as you go) method, which essentially means the "piecing" and quilting happen simultaneously. Gotta love that!
As this doll quilt is destined for my friend's 5 year old daughter, Miss A, and her donkey (you remember Ruby, right?) I went with zig-zagged edges to make it a little more secure and up for all kinds of crazy adventures.
The zig zags leave a funky yet subtle effect on the back with I really like. :)

Ok, that's enough from me - now it's your turn. What finish/es have you got to show off this week? Link up below and share the excitement.
EDITED TO ADD - the finished size for this doll quilt is 17" x 20". Sorry for forgetting to put that information in initially. I seem to always forget the important stats. Duh! :)
