    "A Box of Chocolates" for my friend Pat

    I took a class on paper-piecing and insetting the finished circles a while ago and managed 12 UFO blocks. Last week, I pulled out the project and made the top. They look like See's Raspberries and Cream to me. The border is made from the 5-minute block. When I got to the corner squares I had NO fabric left over once done, not even a snippet. Whew! Must have cashed in some kharma points.

    This is my favorite quilt top that I ever made.

    It's really pretty! Glad it is no longer a UFO top, now get her quilted and bound because she's a beauty!

    Your quilt is beautiful. I too took a paper piecing class and was happy as could be to be able to make only 3 squares and make a table runner. Beautiful results, but man picking all of that paper out--yikes!
