whoop whoop Friday - H2H Plus quilt top finished

(post linked to Sarah's party at Confessions of a Fabric Addict - check it out!)

I have been slowly plugging away at this quilt top for several fragmented hours...but Thursday late at night during a productive bout of insomnia, I finished it!  Then I stood back pleased with myself. Because I really like how the fabrics pulled together and there were so many times I wasn't sure. And many rearrangements on the floor layout...followed by a series of seam ripping corrections to get the balance and layout just right.

We are going to redo our garden with a clothesline, and I can't wait. But what my family doesn't know is that my primary motivation is to have a place to hang quilt tops and FOs to photograph outside in the natural light without fastening it to a fence or just draping it over a table...  Although it just occured to me that I haven't tried laying it out on the grass - that might be pretty.

Anyway, here is the top!!

I'm planning to back with a solid blue accented with a strip of scraps from the top fabrics. Not sure about the binding yet.

Have a great weekend and I wish you all time to do somethings that make you happy!



  1. It's awesome! Such bright, happy colors!

  2. Great puzzle quilt - color placement with these will drive you bonkers! Nicely done.

  3. I love it. It is very bright and colorful. Great Job!

  4. I love it! You did a great job!! You might consider scrappy binding - with all the colors in the quilt, it might be just the ticket! Whoop whoop!
