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!
