My Happy Quilt

This quilt makes me SO happy! It is made of some of my favorite things: triangles, batiks, and Kaffe Fassett fabrics. I really enjoyed making this one. It is 50" x 70". I pieced the top in March, 2007, basted it in Aug. or Sept., quilted it last week and finished the binding last night. That means I got it done in less than a year. After showing you so many from 10-15 years ago that I haven't finished, I feel this was an accomplishment. Below is the detail shot of some of the fabrics.
I didn't have enough of either of these fabrics for the back so it is pieced and I love it.

Visual happiness ~ I agree. The colors are bright and prints are fun. My eye is drawn to the green flower print that dances through the colorful field.

Ooohh Wanda, another great quilt! At first glance I thought it was all triangles and then I saw, full squares, half squares and fours. Wonderful fun and very very inspiring.

What wonderful colors! I like the design, too - triangles and squares. They all fit together. It does present a very happy feeling. One more UFO finished. Great way to begin the year.

Oh, Wanda! What a feast for my color-starved winter-dimmed eyes. It makes me happy, too!
