Friday finishes

Another finish! And I love this one.....

If you remember, this is the "Origins" fabric that I bought and then saved for a long time because I couldn't bring myself to cut it up.  Then when I did....I hated the quilt top..and cut the blocks up into little pieces and sewed them back together!!  Well, it is now finished!! And  I am very happy with the finished product!

I used up the extra bits for a strip of piecing on the back..

It finished at about 60"x 72".  And now it is one of my very favourite quilts!!
I think this earns a link up to TGIFF !!

  9. Wow - yellow and green and black. Not a color combination that I would have ever in a million years thought to put together, but it totally works! I love the "rail fence - but then you look closer and it's so much more" effect you got on the front, and the back is just adorable.
