Diana's quilt

I finally
finished this quilt!

I made the top last summer and decided it was not quite right.
So, it's been folded up with my quilt tops
waiting for an occassion!
An occassion came!!!
Yeah!
My musician, USC alumni/fan friend had a birthday!
The colors and theme seemed just right for her.

All I had to do (cough, cough, sputter, sputter...)
was to add a border, quilt and bind it!!
Isn't that gold swirly quilting fun?
It was fun and I don't usually really enjoy the
quilting step that much.


I even had that nice yellow in my stash for the back.
It kind of softens the quilt without clashing.
I'm especially proud that I was able to finish this
without a trip to the fabric store!
That probably means I have way too much fabric...
???

  5. Very pretty! I was just looking at a book earlier today that had a picture of a small trip around the world quilt -- in Amish solid colors. I'd really like to try this pattern one ofthese days.
