before:


I joined the quilt along at the Old Red Barn Co blog.  It was a terrific opportunity to have deadlines for each part of the project and lots of support along the way.  The final product is a little bit wonky but it's cheery and bright and all mine and I love it.  Fabric line is Washtub Butterflies.

I love it!  I have fabrics from that line as well and I've been trying to think of a quilt design that would work.  I love the simplicity of this design.  You have definitely inspired me!!  Grin

I love simple quilts.  This one is really special.  Love your fabric selection and the back of the quilt, too.  I really like how quilt backs have evolved.  Great job!

I love that you quilted it diagonally like that!  It looks so great!

I love the simplicity of the design and the bright colors. I'm putting together one of these right now with some of my stash and enjoying it a lot. I love the idea of diagonal quilting and might give it a go instead of sending it out to my usual longarm lady.
