It's Finished!







Blues and Greens Quilt is based from an Amy Smart pattern and is 90" x 65".  I had many interruptions while working on this quilt which made it seem like I would never get it completed. I am so happy to have finished it that I want to share it. There are so many linky parties happening. Today I have linked up with Martha at Weekend Doings who is hosting Let's Get Acquainted Monday Link up. I spied many beautiful quilts from those who hooked up there this evening. So much fun! Like a party! Tomorrow will be Connie at Freemotion By the River and Janice at Sew Cute Tuesday. Will I get any work done tomorrow? Wednesday WIP Wednesday is link up day with Lee at Freshly Pieced and Friday with TGIFF and with Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict her, Can I Get a Whoop! Whoop! All their buttons are at the very top right column. Join the parties and link up. See you there!

    1. Hello Jules! Thanks for stopping by. I have made it to your blog a couple of times and left a comment. I'm not sure if the comment kept - I sure hope it has. I'm having trouble getting back to your darling blog site. Brave one taking up the Dear Jane quilt. I admire that you have.

  6. This quilt looks beautiful! It caught my eye right away on the Freemotion by the River linky party.

    Your blog is absolutely beautiful. Did you hire someone to do it or did you do it yourself? It is the prettiest I've seen! I love the paisleys and your header.

    1. Thanks for all the compliments! The blog is a template from the Cutest Blog on the Block. It's a fun place to visit. I'm working on organizing it better though and making it more accessible. Still needs some work. I love all the wonderful social media buttons that are available now. I haven't had time to do much with them yet.

  7. I'm in awe of anyone who actually completes a quilt larger than a baby blanket. That is a stunner. Great job!

    1. Thanks *Skooks* (ahhh I learned from your site that it means "little girl.") Love it! Thanks so much for the awesome compliment on blues and greens quilt. I've actually done larger. Lots of back, neck and shoulder aches! LOL.
