A finish at last

I cannot believe that I have not blogged for such a long time. Where does the time go to??????? What have I been doing - I always seem to be on the run but not much to show for it.

At last I can share with you a "finish". Several months ago my quilting group was given a mystery quilt to complete and I decided that I would be strong and use only fabric that I had in my stash in case I was disappointed in the mystery pattern chosen. And am I glad that I stuck to my decision as I am not a fan of the pattern called Turning 20 and of course as luck would have it that was what the mystery turned out to be.

I finished the quilt last week and even though I am disappointed in the pattern - I think that the blocks are too big for my liking - it will come in handy as a throw on a cold night as I snuggle up to watch some TV.

Hi Karen, I'm not a fan of big blocks usually, but it does look lovely- you have used some pretty fabrics. :)

I agree with Sandy on the choice of fabrics. If they had been 'busy' or bright colours the Turning 20 would have been overwhelming but yours looks welcoming and cosy.
Cheers,

I think it has turned out really beaut Karen and using big blocks would have been a quick way to sew them all up. Love the colours! Hugs Vicki x
