It's a flimsy finish!

Before I get to the flimsy finish - the New Bloggers Blog Hop has started over at Plum and June!  Head over there and check out all of the great bloggers on the hop today AND she is having a give-away! WAIT! Don't leave yet! You have to see this! :)

OK, not going to blather on, just going to do a brief recap. . . here is the design I made in EQ7:

Previous posts here and here and here it is!
I'll square up those sides when I am done quilting.

Paper is still attached to the back which makes the flimsy hang a little better, another bonus to PPing! Who knew?

I'm testing spots and angles in my back yard ;)

This spot, at this time of the day is pretty darn good! YAY

Must remember this spot.  The colors are coming off perfectly.

I tweaked color placement a bit, I liked this better. And once I made the decision, unless I was willing to start ripping, they were staying put. I did enough ripping with this one. . . A LOT of ripping.  Matching those seams and points was a bit tedious and here's what I learned - the more I obsessed about it as I was sewing, the further off my sewing was! Need to chillax! I looked at the rows for a long time before I sewed them together. . . pondering. . . shaking my head. . . knowing there was no way I was going to get them all perfect. And I didn't.  And that is OK.  It is finished now and it looks exactly as it did in my head - don't you love it when that happens??

I ordered the backing fabric. . . for some reason they decided to send it on the slow boat. . . It's not going to be here until next week :(  

I'm off to finish the backing for the strip quilt top and get it quilted.  It's feeling neglected ;)  Linking up with Lorna for Let's Bee Social, Lee for WIP Wednesday, Kelly for NTT and Amanda Jean for Finish it up Friday.

Until next time, keep on quilting!

    I'm looking forward to seeing your super quilting too.

  4. Your piecing is so makes me want to give you a big hug. What a big difference between the two pictures - shade and sun. I usually prefer shade to take my pictures. However, your quilt in the sun really shines. They all do. You shine :-)

  5. Love the last photograph of the quilt top - it looks great!
