One Top Done....

I finally pieced together my Black & Limey...all blocks were done and hanging beautifully on my design wall all through January and into the first few weeks of February. I took a 2 day trip with a friend to the ocean and put it together! I love how it has turned out! I plan to have a friend quilt it for me, unsure what and how to quilt it yet. I made the borders as wide as the blocks - 8", to show off the design in the fabric. I'm very happy with the end results:


I have another Black/White top to work on as well, that is from a UFO over 2 years ago. I'll pick it up next!

This is beautiful! I love the layout of your quilt top and the lime green really makes it pop.

Great job!

Oh I love it. Your border fabric is super. You were right to make it wide to show off that fabric.

The quilt is lovely! I was wondering if you knew the name and manufacturer of the black and white border print? thanks, carolann427@aol.com

So, so pretty! Looks like a pair of shoes at the top the same color. :)

I love this - what a nice easy block.......I saw that border fabric in a store a couple weeks ago and fell in love with it - had to get 3 yards!!!

Thank you to everyone's comments! Ya'l know how to make a gal feel good :)

Carolann, the fabric is from Northcott, called Califon - by Mark Lipinski's Home. The only 2 pieces that aren't is the gray background and the lime.
