A FINISHED QUILT!

Hurray! A finished quilt!  Fortunately, it's been a little cooler up here in Osoyoos so I was able to finish up the binding on this quilt!  In an effort to use up some of my scraps, which incidentally are becoming completely out of control, I once again grabbed my Ann Kelle prints and made this little quilt...
 
 
I love how this turned out!  I started making blocks with no real plan in mind (as usual)! I ended up putting them together with Kona white for the sashing. I love how the colours pop against the white and how the blocks look like they are floating! Unfortunately, I managed to make only a tiny dent in my scraps!
 
With cooler temperatures forecasted for today, perhaps I can get another one finished! It's normally way too hot up here to sit with a quilt on my lap.
 
Nothing to do with quilting...but here's a photo I took a few nights ago!  I'm really pleased with this picture - I think I'm finally getting the hang of my camera!
 
 

 
Pretty, isn't it!
Linking up with Amanda Jean today! Have a great summer weekend!

  5. Thank you! Funny you should ask...no, I'm not gifting this one. It will probably go to my shop! I have been planning on writing a post about gifting quilts and how I feel about it!
