Delighted


The Scrappy Stash quilt top is finished, and I'm officially in love.


There is something so wonderful about putting a quilt top together. Going from here...


...to here...


...to here.


I hadn't expected the top to turn out as large as it did when I first started putting these blocks together. It's just shy of queen size, and my darling husband has said that he doesn't mind a bit if we let this one become the quilt for our bed that I've been meaning to make for almost a year now. I am so delighted at the thought of waking up to the sight of these beautiful colors every morning. 

And now on to the quilt back...

Linking up to WIP Wednesday.

  11. I love the way the blocks look, all sewn together! The fun aspect of this quilt-along, to me, is the way each person's blocks are completely different and unique! Your top is gorgeous!
