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 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.

You quilt is beautiful!! I have always admired that type of quilt but have never made one myself. Your colors are gorgeous.
