I loved all the steps as they were released. Then the big reveal at New Year's and my love chilled. A lot. This is by far the busiest quilt I've ever put together. So I set it aside and let it marinate. A while. Earlier this month, I felt ready to work on it again. I'd seen other people's versions and slowly fallen back in love with it. And now that it is finished, I do truly adore it. Cassidy came out to look at it when it was finished last night and claimed it. Which is funny, because when the reveal came out, she was in the same boat I was.
I think a lot of our love for this quilt comes from the fabric choices and color choices I made. I made sure to go with crisp colors, very sharp. I toned down the yellow just a tad by using the lavender in the border. I just love every tiny piece of this one!!! I'm so, so happy to have it done.
Either tonight or tomorrow, I'll get outside for a photo shoot of both of my flimsy finishes this week so I can blog them and put them to rest. Now I don't feel guilty at all about the other 12 WIP's in that stack I told yall about. :)
Today I'm linking up with Fabric Tuesday at Quilt Story, Show and Tell Tuesday at I Have to Say, WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced, and Let's Bee Social at Sew Fresh Quilts.
Also with Crazy Mom Quilts!
