"Colors"

I swore I wasn't going to post this for awhile, but I just couldn't help myself. This little quilt turned out so neat and I love it so much!! Originally I was going to quilt it myself, but when I got done piecing it, I was too afraid that I'd mess it up.....especially with all my math in figuring out the perfect back for it, so off the the quilters it went. I just got it back on Thursday, so I bound it yesterday and bribed my husband to hold it today. (Those are his feet in the one pic., not mine. I'm the photographer in this operation.) Tee-hee!! Finished, it measures only 43x56 inches so it's a nice little lap quilt.

And the back...note how the colors could go round and round and round...

And naturally, I ALWAYS take a close-up:

In case any of you want to make one of these for yourself, I found this pattern in the Atkinson Design book, "Allegro". And it's not very hard at all!!!

Now I better get a-sewin' because I'm almost out of new stuff to show you. (And I have company coming tomorrow too, so it'll be a day or two before I can even get the machine out again.) E-gads!!!

Absolutely beautiful! I have that book and haven't had an opportunity to make the quilt yet. I just love her patterns, very well written and simple clean designs. I just love your quilt front and back!

You could make that top scrappy too. What a great idea. And a very lovely quilt.
