ALOYF February Finish

Whew!  I was seriously thinking this would not get done.  I realized about a week into the month that there was no way I had the time to do the custom quilting I had in mind, so I went with this loopy all-over pattern.  The texture is so yummy.

I really like the gradual change in the colors.  I'm still a little in awe that I totally used scraps from another quilt for this top.  {These were originally dessert rolls of Circa 1835 that I used for the Flower Patch Quilt Along a couple of summers ago.}

I ended up piecing the backing a little because I didn't buy quite enough of the gray fabric, but had plenty of the green binding fabric.  I like the way it turned out.  The only thing really left is the label, but I haven't decided what to call it yet ... I think it'll just stay on my desk until I do as motivation.

  1. Congrats on your finish. It turned out really great. Love that back!

  2. I like the loopy design. Your stitches look so even too. Very nice! And congrats on the finish.

  3. It is nice to get things finished, isn't it. Names? Hmmm. I see 'fading paving' in the colourwash and parquetry-like pattern.

  4. I like, I like and the pieced backing is so much more interesting. Congrats to you on the finish.


Thank you for stopping by! I love to hear from you. Come back soon!
