Deciding on the final layout has been one of the hardest parts of making this quilt.
Seeing the Swoon-along appear in Blogland was obviously all I needed to get this one made and off my "to-do list" for 2012. But, as can be seen here I have already added another two to that same to-do list.
I committed to make the quilt on Monday 9th after a fall out with another project.
I had fabrics picked from my stash on Thursday 12th
I mucked up one FQ when cutting and had to substitute :(
but, now I have a completed Quilt top,
with colors so far out of my comfort zone,
but I am so happy with it.
It is such a beast that I can't get my clothesline to go high enough so it doesn't drag on the ground.
and being that the colors are so far out of my comfort zone
I thought I would run with it,
so what do you think of such a bold choice of backing fabric?

Now for the quilting.
It is booked to go to the quilters
but not for the quiting job your might expect,
something a little different
........ more on that soon :o)
