Back to business

I finished off this quilt.


Did I mention I love it?


And that to reverse the balance of yesterday's post I'm feeling...

Toile backing - I've been quilting so long I can remember when toile was in. Maybe it's gone out and come back in again. I don't know. I don't think it really matters.



...there should be less words...



...and more pictures.



Because that's what you've come here for - right?

Linking up to Finish It Up Friday

  1. DY-NO-MITE! Love love love that layout of drunkard's path. And the colours are spectacular - it's interesting that the light values make the figure and not the ground. Love it!
