A Sassy Finish


Hurray!  I finished my Sassy Triangle Quilt with time to spare!  The weather cooperated for a bit so I was able to pop out between showers and take some photos.  I really love how the winter grays work so well with the acid yellows and orchid purples.



I was able to use up the rest of this older fabric on the back.  I don't often piece my backs this much but I certainly didn't want to go buy fabric so this was the best option.




For the quilting, I decided to give Amy's Scroll Flower a try.  It must be really similar to something I have a definite muscle memory of as I always headed out in the wrong direction.  Oh well, my flowers have three rows of petals.  What can I say, it was late and my brain was too tired!  
It still looks great however!




This quilt was so pretty laying next to my succulent garden with all of its spring growth and lime green plants.  I am looking forward to another sunny day so I can go out and dig in the dirt!

Paula over at The Sassy Quilter hosted this little Quilt Along.  Wasn't that nice of her!  Final link ups of all finished quilts happens April 25th through May 3rd.  I am really looking forward to seeing all the awesome triangle goodness!


Now on to the next project!  I actually have two empty design walls right now.  
We certainly need to remedy that!

  8. You are my heroine! TWO EMPTY design walls? I wanna be like you when I grow up, lol. This quilt is just beautiful, just glowing, and putting it outside in that setting definitely shows off not only the colours of the quilts, but also of the garden. I LOVE your garden path!! It oozes of serenity, harmony. Now I want to do this quilt along too! Funny, I thought of a similar flower to do on my Scrap-a-Palooza Bar quilt...great minds... :-)
