A Friend's Finish and A Kick in the Seat of My Pants!

As I told you on Wednesday, I spent a long weekend with my dear friend Kate. We had a grand time sewing and working on projects. One of Kate's projects was Quokka Quilts QAYGFMQQAL that she started maybe a month or so ago (I started mine in January). She used some of the fabric that she hand-dyed at my house last September. Yummy! Well, she was able to finish her quilt this week.
Kate's Finished Quilt!
I think Kate's quilt turned out fabulous! Now, as I said I started mine in January, finished the FMQ ages ago. Is mine done??!! Nope! So I pulled it out of my substantial WIP pile and started working on it. 

I quilted around the edge of the inner block and trimmed them to 10" squares
So Kate's quilt had some benefits to me, a squarely aimed kick in the seat of my pants to get me moving on my quilt.

I'm linking up today with TGIFF over at Plum and June!
