A Finish :: Floral QAYG

I'm trying to finish things up instead of letting them linger. My QAYG class went well last week. Now I have completed the quilt.

The blocks (all but three of them) were given to me by my mom. The kindest way I can think to phrase this is "these aren't my favorite fabrics." I don't have a lot of realistic florals but do have a few. I used them to make three more blocks and used them on the back, as well as some other fabrics I set aside for a charity quilt.

It took me a while to find a joining strip/binding fabric in my stash that I thought would go with these blocks and fabrics. What I used was not my first choice, but it is what I had enough of in my stash.

Interestingly enough, I don't dislike the finished quilt. It is not my style, but it is nice. Hopefully someone will like it. The finished size is about 49" by 62". It is bigger than I anticipated, but a nice lap size.

I was curious to see how it would wash up and I'm pleased to say that it washed up beautifully.

I am sure that someone will truly love and be comforted by this quilt. I like the wide variety of colors and patterns in it.
