Another WIP finished

And this one I am keeping!  I love Heather Ross fabric too much to give it away.  This is my favorite quilt back ever!  I wanted so badly to do something uneven and crazy on the back, but I just can't let go and do it.
I have learned so much since I started this quilt last year:
Accurate cutting is extremely critical.
1/4 inch seams are extremely critical.  Evidently one of my sewing machine feet is not 1/4 inch, so this quilt is a mess.
Squaring up your squares is extremely important
Ironing is crucial
Make sure your fingers quit bleeding before you finish hand sewing the binding, dang me!
I love white!  It makes me so happy to hold a white quilt.
I also got some fabric, some from my LQS. Willow layer cake, fox hollow, botanika (2 yds) I am so in love with this fabric, a little bit of Avalon.


  1. See that fat bald man floating in the ocean, I die! the back is pieced together so much better than the front, hurray for progress!

  2. I LOVE it!!! Especially the fat man and the goldfish. I always wanted the goldfish. And Willow is one of my fav lines, so soft. Glad you're keeping this one!! Can't wait to see it in real life :)

  3. It is FABULOUS! Front to back, up and down, in all ways fabulous. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
