First 2017 Finish!

Monday evening, I finished (including washing) the 2012 Designer Mystery BOM. (How many years has that been a quilty resolution?)

Just as a reminder, I used the blocks for this quilt as hand work when I was waiting places or watching football, so all the blocks are hand pieced. Here they are in no particular order.

I had also purchased the finishing kit. This is the Fat Quarter Shop’s original design for setting the blocks.

I’m not sure why, but I just didn’t feel like this was the right setting for these blocks and fabrics. I was able to use the fabric in the kit to do something a little bit different.

These were taken in the sunroom on a cloudy day. My husband generously held up the quilt for these pictures.

I am so happy with the way this looks! And I’m happing to finish a longterm project!

Quilt on!

    FABULOUS!!! I love this quilt and it came out so well. I agree that the on point set is perfect for it. Great job! I am thrilled that you were able to finish it finally. I know it has been weighing on your mind.

    This is lovely, Gretchen! I don’t like to work with blocks on point, but it was the right decision for these blocks. Still love the sashing!

      I keep finding myself drawn to blocks on point. This could be bad…
