Woo Hoo!

Another bed quilt in the 'finished' pile!  At left is a close-up of the back.  The quilting was done by Anne Spiotta of Blue House Quilting, Wheaton, IL.  I couldn't be happier with the results - I love the heavy quilting in the quilt top alternate block.  I don't have a nice place to hang quilts for picture taking, so hubby stepped in.  Pictures are a little fuzzy (sorry), but the hired help wasn't interested in 'Take 2'.  The picture on the left is the top - picture on the right is the back.  You're probably tired of seeing this one, but it's finally finished!

           A couple close-up shots of the top -


Jan and I had a great retreat weekend - my personal accomplishments:
binding attached to two bed quilts
six pinwheel blocks
four log cabin blocks
small start on Lori's Midnight Stars

Nice!! This one is going in the file. Our newly formed small group just designated the churn dash block as our year long project. Inspiration abounds!

Wonderful quilt, and I love pieced backing. The quilting is complimentary and beautifully done. Congrats on another big finish.

I like the chrome yellow fabric that you used.

I always appreciate close-up photos so I can see the quilting, and when it's a wonderful, colorful quilt like this, all the better! The chrome yellow alternate blocks & border provide a great contrast.
You accomplished a lot on your retreat weekend.
