Finished quilt top

In an effort to clean up the work area by reducing the pile of works in progress I finished piecing a quilt top today.  I posted some layout options over the last few days, ( but I kept the original as planned.   I do plan to do a few more tops with this block in the future and I will use some of the other options.

With the added borders It finished at 64″ x 76″

Here are a bunch of pictures of the top. (click pictures to enlarge) I really need to take pictures in daylight to get truer colors, the colors are duller without a flash and brighter than reality with a flash.

Hand quilting will have to wait a while on this one….I have too many in progress already.

Now on to the next pile in the mountain

Happy Quilting

    Climb every mountain
    Blocks loose and sewn
    Follow every colorway
    Every quilt top you own
    Quilt tops, they will need
    All the time you can give
    Every day of your life
    As long as you live…..

    I can hear Teddy ki-yi-ing on the chorus.

    The pink quilt is the one I wanted to make. I even drew a template for myself. Too bad it didn’t work. It looks so simple. Oh well. It’s a beautiful quilt Tim.

    Great choice for borders!

  8. Love what you did the border. I’m so pleased you could squeeze it out of the scraps.

    First time I’ve seen a border like that; I love it, and no waste to boot which I also love! I lost the bet about which pattern you would choose. My choice was one of the symmetrical ones even though you said you would probably choose asymmetric. But I can see why you would choose this one. It is symmetrically asymmetric.

    I’d almost forgot about that second one, great to see it ‘in progress’ again!

    I’m curious, since this was from an effort to ‘clean up’ your workspace, how do you store your finished quilt tops? The ones that don’t get quilted right away. I’m having trouble with those adding to the mess…

    Say hi to Teddy.
