Another Finished Quilt.

Another finished quilt!! YIPPIE!  This one started out as one of those 1800 quilts where you sew 2 1/2 inch strips end to end to end....Of course I just could not do it as the pattern stated.  I inserted 2 1/2 inch squares randomly along the strips to add more character.  When I finished the quilt was waaaaay too long for the width.  So I took 18-inches off of the length and re-added the borders.  (I forgot to say that I made the borders then did not like the length compared to the width.  Thank goodness for seam rippers)

I really like the look now.  I used up a lot of my pink and brown 2 1/2 inch strips and 2 1/2 inch squares.

Label attached....Quilt Complete!
 I also had time today to put out some of the fall quilts in the dinning room.  I love my fireplace mantle quilt.
 Happy Quilting,
