I've been so excited to finish up this quilt and share it with everyone. Worked on throughout 2021 and 2022 as a project with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilters, it has been on my to-do list for a long time!
50 x 65
Thank you, Angela, our fearless leader of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, for figuring out the blocks and sharing tutorials for all the punctuation marks throughout 2021! I think my favorite row to make was the question marks.
Once all the blocks were made into rows, it was time to figure how to put all the pieces of the puzzle together. That took me awhile, and lots of bits and pieces of background fabric (Moda Bella Pearl) to figure out!
Sometime in October, I finally had everything I needed to finish this one up - backing, batting, and basting spray! I quilted it using the serpentine stitch on my Pfaff - mostly horizontal lines, but also some vertical to fill in the negative spaces. The binding turned out to be some leftover Kona Aruba from my stash which is actually on the front of the quilt, too.
A fun rainbow print from Joann's for the backing.
And now #Full Stop is finished!
A label and a trip through the washer and dryer are all that's needed before I can give this to my 15 year old great niece who is quite a writer!

I’ve enjoyed following your progress on this quilt – and now that it’s finished – it’s so darn cute! Your backing fabric is just as fun as the front of the quilt!
What a perfect gift for your niece!
Oh, yay! What a lovely finish, Diann! I love how you so thoughtfully placed everything on the front. And the darling backing is just so perfect! Yes, I would guess that this was made by a (former) schoolteacher!
This is a big favorite of mine! I love the patterns and I love the colors you chose and how you arranged each symbol! It looks AWESOME Diann! Well done and I think your niece is going to love it!
it turned out really well. I love that backing that you chose for it and the quilting is the stitch I like to use when I go by machine.
Sounds like the perfect quilt for your great niece. What a pretty backing you found for it.
Congrats on a very fun finish!
It turned out so well Diann! I think my favorite is the little periods on the side. Love that binding and the backing too. I didn't know it was for your niece! Looks like the perfect gift for her. Well done!
Great finish, yippee fabric out!!
Love, love, love how this turned out! I'm going to really have to pull mine out this weekend and figure out how to puzzle it together. Thank you for the inspiration!
Hooray for a finish, a fine one, indeed! I never got past the hashtags on that one.

Yippee!!! It is so "stinkin" cute. A quote a dear friend used often. It's a great gift for a budding young writer. I'm sure she will love it. I have mine on a list to complete 2023. I am determined. I will keep a photo of yours for inspiration!
You are really finishing things up!! Kudos!
It is such a fun quilt. Congrats on your finish. Weird to say, but that's an awesome "niece" quilt. I thought it would be good for a teen as well.
