Last week I showed the start of a very bright quilt top. I was able to finish the piecing this weekend and I'm happy to share a photo! I love how this turned out and seem to have drastically overcut the strips so I can play with more of them. I was making a throw size pattern called Fair and Square into a queen size and kept cutting without planning ahead! My sister will be the recipient of this quilt eventually. Sorry for the crooked photo.
My year with the Quiltmaker Scrap Squad has come to a close. This past year has been such a rewarding experience, using a provided pattern and making it scrappy. For the last quilt we were allowed to choose any quilt Quiltmaker had published. That was a hard decision, but one kept calling me, Vintage Sunburst. This was the original photo:
Here is my version that I named Pie in the Night Sky.

I will be doing a complete Scrap Squad recap of my quilts later in the week so be sure and check back!
I am working on finishing the top of the Quiltmaker Bitty Blocks that were a year long monthly row quilt on their blog last year. I decided to take my quilt apart and make the sashing a bit narrower. I still have to get the last two rows down. Here is the photo before I started taking it apart. I have shown it before. It was going to be too long and skinny.
