First completed top in 2013!

I was so excited I thought I was going to cry!   With our many moves the past few years, homeschooling, 2 surgeries, starting my own longarm service and now moving my mother nearby; carving out time for my personal projects has been difficult.   I was overwhelmed that I finally got this one done!   This pattern works up fast, I just have not had many hours to work on it.   I started with an assortment of fat quarters and was not too sure how some of these would work together.    Ideally,  I would swap out and make a few different blocks for some of these, but on the other hand I think the look is interesting and DONE is always good.   Oddly, when you view the quilt from any of the 4 sides... the color layout looks different!    I have not decided which view is my favorite.



Here is a pic of the blocks in progress.   The close up show the colors a little more accurately.   I like the flow of this layout, but it was looking out of balance when I started laying out all the blocks with very different backgrounds.

 
Now, to decide on a backing fabric, quilting design and thread!
