This is a queen sized quilt I put together from the blocks I received from rounds 3 and 4 of the quilt block swap. As you can see I had some beautiful blocks to work with.  My partners did a great job of coordinating color and I received a large number of fussy cut centers, which I was a wonderful surprise Cheesy.

 This is by far the largest quilt I have made and it is far from perfect.  My sewing machine had too be replaced half way through the quilting process  Undecided, so it has taken a long time to put together, but it is finally done!  These pictures are kind of dark, but in real life it is s big and bright and I am very happy with it Grin

The quilt. As you can see it covers my whole bed (It was kind of dark when I took these pictures, it is a bit more vibrant in person).


I got some "extra" blocks that I incorporated into the back of the quilt. Then I decided to to add some extra fabric squares when I realized I did not quite have enough backing fabric Tongue 


I was rather excited about the mix of colors on the binding and here you can see a close up of the back which had tiny squares that seemed like a good fit for the motif


And some details of the blocks:

It turned out fabulous!  The bright colors really do go together well!

Hard to believe that so many different quilters "made" this quilt...you did a fabulous job of pulling us all together!

Love how you did the back as well...it is interesting from both sides!

I hope my garden fence quilt goes together as nicely.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful quilt!

Ditto-ing all of the above.  So cool seeing blocks I made with those from so many others all together in a finished piece.  And extra kudos for a really great reverse side; I love a pieced back that could easily be seen as a top!

Love how all the blocks came together! You did a great job on the arrangement and, as waterbaby said, the back could easily be seen as a quilt design in its own right, especially with so many of today's minimalist quilts. Think I'm going to have to request the garden fence block in our next go-round.
