It's finished!!!  I am reeaally happy with how this turned out, it looks much better than I thought it would.  It started as a project to use up material I had lying around in scrap drawers, not all of it lovely; many times as I pieced the blocks I shook my head over the fabrics and colours and thought it was dreary.  But now, looking at it pinned up on my design wall in the early morning sunshine, I'm thrilled with how it turned out.  It looks antique, and interesting and the triangles are soothing and rhythmic.  Looks like I'm in love with the triangles again.

I've cleaned up all the fabric scraps from this quilt, and organised the remainder of the 1.5"strips that were still littering the sewing room.  I have a clear space to work when I start the next project, but for now I'm off to putter around in the garden.  Time for some fresh air and inspiration from my flowers.

Oh gosh that came out fantastic, didn't it? I love this and I'm really intrigued with the border fabric. I have some of that because I thought "hey, border fabric." but I've yet to figure out how to use it. Now you've done it and in fine fashion too.

Very inspiring quilt. A huge congratulations to you and I hope you very much enjoy your time in the garden!

Isn't it funny how the ugliest fabrics add some zing to a quilt? Love this quilt and the borders are great!

I love it, and the creative border. I recently had a quilt machine quilted by a friend, and she loved a particular fabric in it. Yes, it was one that in a big chunk looked fairly nasty, but, cut up, added so much to to entire piece.

A good finish. I would be happy with it too! I like all the triangles in the design.

Great Job! Love the bizillions of hst's, and the neat border fabric.

Kathi 9:38 AM  

Absolutely beautiful. The combination of elements for the border really set off the center- I like the lighter border fabric too. And all those strips cleared away!
