The top, that is. It's windy here so this is the best picture I could get. 

It's bigger than I expected it to be, which is funny because I was worried it would be too small. It measures 66" x 78". 

I chose to go scrappy with the sashing because I hate am not fond corner stones. Knowing that this quilt would need way more dreadful corner stones than I wanted to deal with, I figured out a way to get creative so I could avoid them. 

This particular fat quarter stack had 20 fat quarters in it and each fat has almost half left over. It's always surprising to me to see how far fat quarters can go. 

For now, this quilt needs to be put away. I need to focus on Christmas and make some decisions on what to do, if anything, for gifts for the ladies in my family. Last year I made them zippered bags. I'm drawing a blank this year...Anyone have any good ideas?


  1. What a beautiful quilt! I love the colors. So cheering!

    Be sure to stop in at Cranberry Morning and enter my 5-Bar Handcrafted SOAP'n'SUCH GIVEAWAY.

  2. It's really beautiful and you sure did whip that one up quickly.

    I'm like you. I have to put some of my projects on the back burner for a while to concentrate on Christmas. It's coming up way too quickly!

  3. Personalized mug rugs and matching mugs are always good ...have you made those for them?? your quilt top is lovely...!!

  4. I'd known it right from the beginning, this would be lovely.
    And it absolutly is!! Thumps up :-)

  5. love those color so ''provence''. those wheel like flower = wow. Love it just love it!
    I'm sure your christmas gift will be perfect!

  6. You have another beautiful finish, that pieced sashing is a great call!
    Christmas ideas: jammie bottoms with t shirts, pillowcases in themes the person likes, a case of their favorite soda, table runners, hot pads, mug rugs (I did see that was already suggested), You'll do something wonderful I'm sure ~

  7. This is just beautiful! And I really love the scrapy sashing. I think I'll so that sometime.
