Finished top

The piles of squares from this previous post are now this finished top, complete with cat. She's the quality control specialist around here.
It's the brightest quilt I've ever made, but it should match my oldest grand-daughters room perfectly, with its hot pink and lime green paint job. It's taken me a little longer to put together than I planned, but my deadline changed so I lost momentum a little. I thought it would be for her 8th grade graduation / confirmation and would be needed this Sat. Then I found out that Pierce doesn't make a big deal out of finishing 8th grade and her confirmation is postponed until Sept. That leaves me plenty of time so maybe this top will get put aside for a while and I'll get a few others quilted. I'd kind of like to have a few in the Tilden Public Library's quilt show this year. At least I want to if gas stays half way reasonably priced this summer so I don't go broke going back and forth.

  1. Dear quiltfriend,
    I got your mailadres from, and I have a question to you.
    My sister is, after an exiting period, finaly pregnant of her first baby.
    Now I would like to make a bright-colored quilt for her. To welcome the baby to this world
    with a quilt from patches from all over the world. I try to collect scraps of 12x12 cm (5x5 inch).
    Do you have a piece of fabric that may be suitable, perhaps you would sent it to me.
    I would really like to use it!

    Many thanks and warm greetings,
