    Son's quilt finally done

    I had a lot of fun piecing this quilt. I loved watching the pattern emerge. I really do not like the "quilting" process so it sat around for a couple of months waiting for me to finish. I refused to start another quilt until I got this one finished. I finally got tired of not working on something fun so I pushed my way through and "got er done". The picture taken outside doesn't do justice to the colors. The quilt looks more like the picture taken on the bed. There really is a difference between the reds--for some reason the picture in the sun doesn't show the variations.

    Thanks for looking.

    ​Great quilt! The depth is better on the bed and that's where you will see it most of the time.

    Beautiful. I always finish one before I start another. If I put one aside, I doubt I would ever go back to it.

    I like the way you did this pattern in reds - I've only seen it in multi-colored versions.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    This is beautiful. This is a variation of the pattern "outside the box" isn't it? But like ArtsyOne stated, "I have never seen one with the double boxes in the middle." Can you tell us where this pattern can be purchased? Thanks in advance. Also, would it be possible to take a closeup of just a few blocks?
