A finish!

Here's a recent finish.
If you want to see quilts made with similar blocks....
VERY different SETTINGS....
look over here!

Here's the very first block.
I didn't really know what I was signing up for when I began!!!
Isn't that the way quilts are???
They take us on a trip we never planned to go on sometimes! ;)

I NEVER thought I'd make enough of these...
but I finally did.

I AM happy to have used these fat quarters for the backing.
Number ONE..... I didn't have enough of the RIGHT fabric
and second....
They were gifted to me by a friend
so...... I'll think of her EVERYTIME I cuddle with this quilt!

I DO like the swirly quilting.
You can imagine I was CELEBRATING when I got to this point!!!!
:0
I was So HAPPY to be done.....
PIECING those little TINY Half Square Triangles!!!!!

Now it's DONE
and I can MOVE on.....
Next time I decide to border a quilt with
VERY small half square triangles...
I hope you'll STOP ME!!!!

********

There is STILL time to add your
PINCUSHION(s) to the PARADE!

  1. Love your colorful quilt, Beth. Man! That's a lot of half squares, a lot of work went into this cutie.
    Don't you just find a pieced back on a quilt more interesting than a solid one. I know I do. And more work, too.

  13. Gorgeous, Beth. The colors are so vivid and fun! I don't think two pincushions qualifies to be in a parade, but I'll sure enjoy looking at others' pincushions.
