Several years ago!!

Yes, several years ago everyone was making Stack and Whack quilts. Our Bee had a class on making them so I started this quilt. It took me awhile to get all the yellow star pieces added and the borders.....BUT......it has been sitting in my cupboard for years just waiting to be quilted.

I found some burgundy brushed cotton fabric on a really good cLeaRaNcE sale that I thought might look good for the back.

I think the appeal was that one fabric could look so different in each block.


For the most part, green is the dominant color so I used it for the border also.


Here is a view of the back and the great quilting. This quilt was quilted by Laura Erickson of Orem.


It is nice to see the stack of "to-be-quilted" quilts going down. But, oh boy, there are still so many that need backing and quilting done. (And to think I used to finish a quilt before I started another one!)
Right now Toma has 2 of my Christmas quilts that she is quilting and I am making the backing for a tree quilt (started 19 years ago), and my friend, Janine, and I are working on a quilt made from the worn out scrubs of a girl that works with us.
Today I was kept busy bottling peaches. They look almost as beautiful as a quilt.
Happy Quilting! Lynda

I have always admired this quilt. It can even make ugly or unusual prints look pretty cool! Thanks for the share! :-}

I love the effect of these quilts. I have made some blocks, which I turned into a bag, but never a full quilt. Yours looks beautiful, I love the colours.
