finished quilt top...

I finally had a chance to take my finished quilt top outside for some pictures.

Even outside this is one of the most difficult quilts to get a true picture of.

The colors are much more vibrant in real life.  Once it's backed, bound and quilted, this one will go on the sofa in the living room.

Fortunately I had enough 2 1/2 inch scraps to make a pillow for the recliner.  I love when that happens.

Next up is a sweet dress for the local quilt shop and then it's time to get busy on Christmas gifts.  I have some gorgeous Riley Blake fabric for purses that I can't wait to get started on.  I guess I better get back to my sewing machine now.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

It's beautiful, Patty.

It turned out so beautifully, Patty. I love what the simplicity of the white fabric does to the make the colors even more vibrant.
You will enjoy it for years to come.

So beautiful! This pattern is one on my list to try. It looks fairly easy and modern, but I love it!
