    Quilt Top Finished

    A few weeks ago I posted this photo of a quilt top I had started but I wasn’t happy about the way it was looking -

    I got some great suggestions from so many of you - I was overwhelmed with brilliant ideas! In the end I took it to pieces and started again. The completed top now looks like this -

    I’m much happier with it now. Thank you for your help!

    Oh I think that is wonderful. The additions you made turned something I felt was "cute but blah" into a very bright and happy project. Hard to go wrong with dots and checks as well

    That is a lovely finished top! Beautiful use of a panel.

    That came out great. It really sings. Don't you love it when you get good advice?
