Triangle quilt top finished........

It is finally sewn together!  I'm so happy with it.  For new readers here is the post with the inspiration.  I worked on this quilt over a 6 week time period.  I planned on using all different fabrics but in the end I repeated two.
There are a couple older rare Kaffe fabrics in the project.  This is one of my favorites.











Here is another rare print.  














It ended up about 79" x 95" and it was a challenge for me at 5'1" to get this up on the design wall for its photo session.













I took a few more nature photos but I'll just show one today.  This is the third color Columbine that I have.  This color is growing in a couple different places but I like the backdrop of the stone on my house for the photo.

My daughter's property with a named waterfall in NC is going to be on a TV show.    Here is a link to the Facebook page for all of the details.  You don't have to have a Facebook account to read it.  I will be going out there for the reveal date.

So amazing. I know you love the red, yet the blues are so beautiful. It has a glow along with the shimmer.

The top looks great Wanda. I love the effect of the colored designs being "shattered" and how it causes such a vibrancy to the quilt.

If you don't mind, I would love to use the finished picture of this quilt as my desktop background. My office has pictures of favorite quilts, patterns; my desk contains notepads with inspiration for quilt making. I really need something for my computer and would love to use this pic.
