5 of 12 Tops finished

This top was made last June, but now it is a fully fledge quilt.

If you look too closely, you will see that my points aren't that perfect but never mind. This was my first half square triangle quilt and I was really happy with how it turned out.

It was made with a scrap collection I bought online. I don't have much of these sort of fabrics, fresh, bright and pastel and realised it when looking through my stash for binding. Luckily I had bought this stripe a few months ago when I was looking for bargains. The backing is all dotty, more from those bargain fabrics I bought at the beginning of the year.

It took me a while to decide on how to quilt it, but then went for this really simple FMQ pattern which I was really pleased with. I used the same wadding as the last quilt which has a really high loft, so the quilting really stands out.

Another thing of beauty. You're on fire this week Shev.

How come I look at your pastels and think "Freaking Gorgeous " and I when I look at any Im using I think "Blah". The quilting is the bomb!
