    What a lovely quilt, wildyard. 40 years together is special..... and a special quilt is perfect.

    I'd rather spend money on my quilting hobby than the therapist.... I'm probably $$$ ahead.... and I'm happy!!

    Congratulations on your 40........ uh 41st year! Looks like they were fun active years. Memory quilts mean so much to the people that lived it and their too. Great finish!

    I really like this idea wildyard! I wonder how many fabrics I could find for my DH... something to think about as I rearrange my stash over the winter. We have our 30th coming up in June so I have some time. Congratulations to you and yours!

    Today's finish is a special one. In January I set a goal of finishing a UFO a week in 2013 and this is UFO Finish #52!!

    Arkansas Crossings is from the book "Quilts From the Heart" by Karin Renaud and this is the 4th UFO I've finished from her book so let's just say it is one of my favorites for scrappy inspiration! I have some leftover 4 patches and lots more 2" squares so I'll be starting another one. Such a fun pattern.

    I'm including a 2nd photo which shows the quilting better. As I was starting to trim it for binding I wasn't happy with how the white X's looked (they were kind of "poofy" compared to the patchwork squares) so I decided to add the diagonal lines down the center of the X's which added so much I thought. I'm getting more confident at making quilting decisions and that feels great!

    Asimplelife: Love that pattern and the border echos every one of your scrap colors. Something about scrappy with a white background or X's always looks so crisp to me. Congrats on the 52nd!

    Agreed! Love it. Adding to the "gotta make me one o them" list.

    Oh, simple.... it's such a pretty quilt. Again, you do such a nice job of putting together bright fabrics that just 'POP'. Love it.

    Thanks everyone! This one has moved from the Project Linus pile to the keeper pile... I'm sure a special person will happen along one day for it. Being #52 and all I'd like to hang onto it for awhile and use it for inspiration.

    My next one is ready for binding but I'm having a lazy Monday so far... it's cold and windy outside and I'm tempted to snuggle up under a quilt for an afternoon nap. Had family home for the weekend which I loved but it always takes me a day to regroup.
