I made a block here and there until I finally decided in July that it would be so much more efficient to get everything cut out, start chain piecing, and get going on this quilt!
So I went from this - in July -
to this - two weeks ago -
to the finished flimsy just a couple of days ago! Hooray!
The blooms are from eight fat quarters of Good Neighbors, by Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts, for Connecting Threads. I chose the pink, lime green, and turquoises for this quilt. The gray background is called Gray, also from Connecting Threads. I think the white is the same fabric as my favorite purple that I used back in March and it is actually a white on white that looks like bubbles. Hard to see in photos, but it is a fun fabric!
I'm really happy with the way all of the blocks came together!
One thing I love about Cynthia's pattern is that you never work with triangles, just stitch and flip squares in the corners of each basic piece. And yet, look at all those pretty triangles!
Yesterday, I went shopping for batting and backing, and found this fun swirly gray which I think will be perfect.
Hopefully this week, I can get the layers put together and basted. I'm excited to get to the quilting - I've been dreaming about how I'll quilt it! Do you ever do that? :)
Hope everyone is enjoying a relaxing and fun Labor Day weekend! Although I hate to see summer come to an end, I do love September. It must be because I am a retired teacher! I'll be linking up to Cynthia's party over at Quilting is More Fun than Housework tomorrow. Go and check out all the fun projects that the Oh Scrap! quilters have been working on!
