    I put this quilt top together one weekend in February. The quilting ladies at my church get together one a month for a Friday night, Saturday quilt day. In February we do a group pattern so there were 8 of us that used this same pattern but of course all different types of fabrics. I just finished sewing on the back of the binding last night.

    close up of the beautiful fabrics. You can't see them so well in the picture of the whole quilt

    I used the extra pieces from the blocks to piece the back together

    The quilt is beautiful, and you did a wonderful job letting us see the fabric to begin with, and the transformation from yardage to a wonderful top and backing.
    Good job!
    I love the pattern.

    We all used the same pattern. Everyone used different fabrics but 3 of us did decide to use oriental fabrics with black sashing.

    Every year we have a "Ladies Spring Luncheon" the weekend before Mother's day. We hang all our quilts, that we still have our possession that we finished that year (between luncheons) We hang them all over the "Activity Center" for the luncheon and then move them over to the "Worship Center" for Mother's day. We have people sometimes who come to church on mothers day to see the quilts hanging. It is really fun to have several of the same pattern all hanging up at the same time cause we all have different tastes in fabrics and stuff.

    In the picture of the whole quilt you can't see how pretty the fabrics are. I think it is because all of the fabrics have some gold etching and maybe it reacted to the flash of the camera or the lights in my room. It looks blurry to me!

    In the close up pic the squares look wonky, they really aren't it is just sitting on top of another quilt that was just bunched up on my cutting table, I was too lazy to remove the other quilt or fold it before I sat this one down to take a picture
