It's finished and I am just tickled pink with this quilt. I love everything about it... the colors, the fun and sweet fabrics (including the birds), the old fashioned tumbler block, and all that scrappiness!
I love the mix of lime greens, soft and bright blues, yellows, low volume fabrics (including two text prints and my favorite chicken wire), with a little red and pink thrown in. The finished size is 41" by 47".
The back contains a wide stripe of Church Flowers from the Nicey Jane collection by Heather Bailey for Free Spirit. The colors and the beautiful blue flowers in this fabric blend well with the front. I love this print and am so happy I found a great place to use it.
My sewing has been slow going, as I mentioned before, because I am in the middle of repainting my kitchen, master bath and making curtains for the living room, dining room, and breakfast room. As far as I am concerned, making curtains is miserable, but I can never find curtains in the store that are the right color or length/size. Several of you requested pictures of the finished product. Once I get everything cleaned up and put together, I will take and share a few pictures.
I am almost finished with the painting and can put my rooms back together, then I have to finish the curtains. Once all that mess is over, I can get back to quilting.
I made sure I took regular breaks to finish this project. I couldn't neglect it!
I hope you have enjoyed looking at all the pictures. It is difficult to capture the true feel and appearance of a quilt in a picture, but I tried. I love the texture of this quilt (what am I saying... really all quilts).
Here is a list of previous posts containing all the different steps through the process of making this quilt:
