A Full Finish Post

I did a quick post last on this quilt at the beginning of the week to get this in for the FAL - Q3 deadline but still needed to take pictures of it in daylight.  This whole getting dark earlier and having to work the daylight hours is always a bummer.  But I did manage to get some taken before the sun was completely gone.

Here it is:

I LOVE IT!  This quilt was my first bee I have done.  I did need my arm twisted to join.  It was not a fear of making other people's blocks but what would I pick for my own.  That is what I stressed over.

My month was March and I knew I wanted to do the rainbow colors since I had done a swap at the end of 2012 on flickr.  My first on line swap as well.  I love that!  All those pretty fabrics and colors and I only had to buy one yard.  That seemed like a great plan!  I then scoured the internet to figure out the perfect block. This block is called the Depression Block.   I was a little worried about all the HST's but everyone did a great job.

Here are some close ups of a couple of my favorite blocks(really there isn't one I don't love)!

There are actually 14 people in our MMQG bee so I had to only had to make six extra since I wanted it bigger.  I still have a stack of charms remaining for another rainbow project!

For the back I used a piece I had bought last year with the quilt in mind but of course didn't have enough so I used up the black and white prints.

I knew I had wanted to do a black and white and had just bought the one from the Architecture line.  Not necessarily for this project just to have.  Now I wish I would have bought more!

I know a lot of pictures!

Last one!

Quilt finished at 67" x 82"
Really no good name. Hopefully that will come to me.

  1. Very pretty! Lots of pictures is always good in my opinion :)

  2. Very nice. Love all the colors. For a name suggestion, how about something to do with diamonds are a girl's best friend? Kind of corny, but catchy! Of course, that's a name that would depend on who's getting it. :)

  3. Gorgeous quilt :). I love the colours and the pics. You can never have too much photos :).
