Finished New Orleans Quilt!


Fresh off my sewing machine is the finished queen-sized New Orleans Quilt!  I'm afraid that even with helpers, I don't have the best place for quilt pictures, plus we live in a very windy part of the world, which poses additional challenges.  Sorry about the shadow, and the wind.  It's in the wash now.  I'll see if I can get some better pictures later, but don't count on it.

Here's a picture of the back.  I had to order all of the fabric on line, so my strategy was to buy twice of every color so I had enough for mistakes, and for a pieced back.  Sure enough, I miss-cut a huge piece of the yellow, so when I planned out the back, the center yellow piece was the biggest yellow cut I had left.  I only realized after I got it all pieced together that I had inadvertently created a big fried egg in the center of the quilt back :-P.  Oh well.

Speaking of eggs, my kids are too old for the Easter Bunny, but I don't think you're ever too old for dyed Easter eggs.  I'm off to boil up some, and hope that you all have a nice Easter or Passover or nice Spring week-end!

Happy Easter! Love the New Orleans quilt, the quilting looks so pretty on it. And I love the big fried egg on the back. ;) Fried egg didn't even cross my mind, really. Have fun coloring eggs. xo
