top finished - on to the next one

In anticipation of Lori's quiltalong starting today, I finished this top up last night.
Because I resized the blocks I also had to resize the borders. I think the proportion is okay. For me this quilt is all about the fabric. So much color and so much pattern :0)
I would like to quilt this by hand but at 34 inches square it will take some time away from the 4 block applique quilt I'm currently working on so I may just machine quilt it to get it done.

My DH spoiled me again at Christmas with this book. The pictures are fabulous!!
Happy Quilting!!

I love your finished top! The colors are so pleasing...just the right amount of "pop" and I love how the stripes go in both directions! Really charming!

In stitches,

I really like this quilt. The colors are so perfect, I've been wondering if I should make my own version.

The quilt really sparkles!! Proportion looks great. At first glance it looks like a lemoyne star, but it is made with all hst?! Too cool!!

I really love those half square triangle stars. They look so complicated. The blue really make the stars sparkle. Enjoy your new book.

your quilt is amazing, the fabric choices are PERFECT
and isn't that the best book?
I still look thru it in awe every few days.
it sits on my coffee table in our living room and calls me to come sit a bit and look thru it.
