    C'est Finis!

    Well, my quilt is finished and has been delivered to my best friend and her husband. Before I left their home, they had installed it on their bed. I'm glad I added the 6" wide black border and the cornerstones rather than just binding it.

    I celebrated by coming home and starting on a variation of the double slice layer cake quilt.

    Oh, the name of the pattern is COLORES. I have named the quilt COLORES SUNBURST.

    The whole thing lying on my lawn! I had DH hold it up for me, but he couldn't hold it in a way that showed the cornerstones. It perfectly fits a queen sized waterbed, and ended up being 87 x 87

                        It wasn't really difficult, per se. The fabric is cut into 2" strips, then each strip is subcut into 2", 3.5", and 5" segments. The pattern came with a "map" to show how to pay out the pieces, which came in quite handy. Rather than sewing together the rows, you sew each column, then sew the columns together. Because there are so many little seams, it took about 45 mins to an hour to assemble each block.
                        If you can't see it from 50 yards away on a galloping horse, it doesn't matter.

                            Dear everyone:
                            THANK YOU! I just got an email from my best friend which says, "I love my quilt! It is so bright that every time I go into my room it makes me happy!"

                            I couldn't ask for higher praise than that.

                              Very beautiful!

                              I love when the colors pop so much, it is very hard to get nice black fabric overhere....I know is'nt that strange......cotton is so thin here and solids are very hard to get.....but some day I will find nice black fabric and make a quilt with lots of color, I might save you pictures if that is okay with you.
                              This is one of my favorite quilts, super job well done!!!!!
                              It ain't no sin to be glad you're alive!
