Default Yellow/green/blue/red quilt top

My sister asked me to make a quilt for a ladies' retreat at a camp in NC. This will be used as a door prize.

She originally asked me to try to make it like a picture I had which showed reproduction fabrics (I'm assuming 30's), of which I have none. I pulled fabrics in these colors and this is what I ended up with. It is a lot brighter than I originally envisioned, but in the end, the top turned out pretty.

It's quite different from what I've been doing and is really simple--just 5" squares, 1.5" white sashings and cornerstones--all on point. Queen size - 92x98". Although simple, I'm finding that anything "on point" is harder than not on point.

I envy the lucky winner. On point always has so much energy, I think its more than worth the extra effort.

It is lovely! Simple squares look amazing when put on point.

Very pretty. The white sashing and set on point make the blocks pop. I love it.
