A finish?

I am going to call it a finish now, although I'm pretty sure I will go back and do a little more quilting some day in the center part.
I added one of the printed labels I ordered way back in the 1960's when I was doing custom dressmaking.  The backing is one of those impulse purchases when it was on sale at a very good price.

I wish I had some more finishes in my future. I am bad about labels. Your finished quilt is very colorful. Chris

Brava! Outstanding finish...

This is a really handsome piece. The black and white surround really enhances the center color blocks. Good job Wanda!

Gene Black said...

I love it! I particularly love that backing. Especially since you got a good buy on it.

Perfecto... the way the outer border plays with the muted colors! The backing is a nice contrast and surprise. --Annette

That back is fantabulous. Goes perfectly with the super cool front!

If I purchased every quilt of yours that I like, you would be rich and I'd have a house full! This one is a big favorite so far!

Leslie said...

What a pretty, pretty quilt. Those colors really stand out against the borders - just beautiful!

KateKwiltz said...

Another beautiful finish! I love how that inner border fabric looks like it's peeking through some of the blocks.
Fantastic!

Isn't it funny how an impulse buy will sometimes turn out to be just perfect for a project? This one certainly is, and the front - oh, my. It is gorgeous! Love it.

Ali Honey said...

Very Yummy! I love it when someone else likes exactly the same fabrics I do.

Those colours , those fabrics make my heart sing as my eyes greedily devour the colous and how they sit by their neighbours.

Purple Pam said...

I like your new quilt. Your labels are great. They were a good impulse purchase. I hope you stay out of a storm's path, too.

Quiltdivajulie said...

Wow ... congrats on the finish (I have some of that backing ... looks great where you used it!)

imquilternity said...

I'm absolutely loving this quilt! The black and white fabrics just set the center off and make it sparkle, plus I love your color placement.

Pat said...

Like everyone is saying above, you are just too much!!! LOL The quilt is fantastic and I especially like the borders that make the center pop.

Lynn said...

Stunning work...I love how the black and white borders offset the color inside...the squgglie lines give an optical dance to it too. Bravo!

hetty said...

Beautiful!

Another fabulous creation Wanda! I left this image up on my computer for a while without intending too an it kept drawing my eye.

Pat said...

I love the backing for the quilt. And as usual I love all the colors. I am going to have to buy more batiks. I love the quilts that they make.
