Top #2.....

FINISHED!!!!.......   Delectable Mountains

It was a good sewing day. The snow must have energized me! :)  Somehow this top seems bigger than the pattern. I'll have to measure, but really, does it matter?  The purple border is crazy, I've never put a purple border on a quilt before, but out of the "maybe" fabrics that I had enough of this is the only one that really looked right. And isn't using what you have the purpose of the "scrappy" style?  Lord knows I have enough fabric to use up!

I also worked on blocks for another quilt today. Sewed the block quarters into block halves. There are lots of seams so there are MANY quarter-inch seams to press open. I know I said I was going to start a new project when I had two tops finished, but maybe I'll work on those blocks for a while....I seem to be on a roll.


  1. The purple looks great on the quilt, and "shopping" from stash makes it even better.

  2. I like the purple border! it is beautiful! and what a great quilt~!

  3. Lovely, every colour and border too, and those fabrics show off the pattern just right.

  4. Isn't that the greatest pattern! I have made two quilts following Bonnie's instructions and helped my friend make a third. The colors in your are just beautiful!
