Done!

Done, done, and DONE!


I'm very happy (can you tell?) to finally have this one done. The colors still aren't exactly true, but the little sunshine we have today is thin and fleeting.



This goes to the quilter on Thursday.

The pattern is Blooming Nine Patch from Tradition with a Twist: Variations on Your Favorite Quilts by Blanche Young. I followed the pattern the whole way, no variations on her variations, so to speak. The directions were clear and easy to follow. This one finishes out at about 72" x 82". I played around with the idea of adding borders, but I am leaving it as it is.

I hope you all are having a great weekend.

One word for this: LOVELY!
It's in my colors and I feel like I am underwater when I look at it. Sort of like a mermaid. *smile*
