Thanks alwaysinmyroom, It did turn out good. Just make me crazy.

I would think it was big enough then lay the ruler on it, nope so I would have to find more bits in the scrape bin. Then more twisting, turning, and cutting. I wasn't at all sure I was going to get that one finished. I had started with I think four or five colors in it. But the time it was done. Just about every color under the sun LOL

well and wonderment

Since I got the top joined, figured I would give you all a preview of it.  Just need to add a small boarder, layer it and begin the quilting



hope you are all well

That is a fantastic sampler block quilt top!  The colors all go together because they are so bright and happy!  I love the floral looking one in the second row from the top...what is that block?

Dang--I had to go through the gallery again...some of you posted pictures that I missed! Cheesy

All of the blocks just look so good seeing them all together in the first few pages! 

Also, I am going to steal some of your wonky house ideas since I am under the gun to make a wonky house quilt for my sister's Habitat for Humanity charity auction! Cheesy

Okay got the boarder on, and made a pillow with one of the pinwheel blocks that was not the correct size, the one I kept that my daughter had wanted for a pillow

Am going to pick up the backing fabric today or tomorrow, one of the shops is having a sale woohoo,


quilt top, with the boarders, tired to get a better pictures with more light.

Very nice, carolmb!

I imagine that once I put the borders on my quilt, that it is going to be huge, too!

I like that you used a dot to tie all of the blocks together...very fun quilt!
