Delicious Finish

My Honey Honey top is finished!

Honey Honey top is finished!

Sorry about the crappy picture. I finished this one at about 3:30am, and couldn't wait to post about it! Can you spot Charlotte? She was helping ;-)

I trucked through and finished the rows and borders in one sitting. It was pretty quick, except for all the pinning! I'm a little particular about my corners - remember these?

I fiddled around with the block layout for about a week or so, trying to even out the values and trying not to put prints in different color ways next to each other. That didn't work as well as I would have liked, I tend to find a print I like and buy it in every color it comes in ;-)

This baby finishes out at 71x86, and the solids are Kona white and candy green. The prints, of course, are Honey Honey by Kate Spain.

It might be a while before I will quilt is one, I forgot to order backing fabric, so that may take a hot second... Decisions, decisions...

  5. I never order backing before the top is finished. I feel like I dont really know the quilt until I see the top done and it is just one less decision I have to make early in the game! I know - total weirdo! This top looks awesome! The quilting will really pop it!

  9. I absolutely love your quilt! Is it the Whim one from a thimble blossoms? If so I just bought that the other day - thought I might give it a go with some muddy modern fabrics like Center City. Bt then I love your version so much too! Thanks for sharing it with us!
