New quilt on the line


A recent quilt top finish.



That will be headed to the quilter just as soon as I find the time.

P.S. Cause I know you'll ask . . . the blocks were made from a tutorial online and the rest I just made up.  Most blocks are consist of a Henna Garden print from Sandi Henderson for Michael Miller Fabrics and a polka dot.  The solids are Moda Bella Goldenrod and Moda Bella Little Boy Blue.  I prefer the Moda solids to Kona because they have a softer hand and more color consistency from dye lot to dye lot.
