Thought I would Never Finish

 My initial plan was to be sharing a quilt finish today.  But I am going to have to settle with just having the finished quilt top to share.



I really loved this project when I started it.  But as I started making the blocks, I realized they took quite a bit of time to cut and sew all those tiny flip corners.

I thought I would never finish all the blocks!



But I did finally finish them this week.  And I have to admit, I am really pleased with how it turned out.

This project really cleaned out all the big chunks clogging up my blue scrap bin and the flip corners ate through a lot of crumbs.

Hopefully this weekend I can get the backing sewn and maybe I can get it quilted next week.

Now I can move on to something else!

  1. That quilt top may have taken longer than expected, but it looks fantastic! That is one of my favorite color combos--dark blues with bright yellow and orange accents.
