finished top

Hi, Heidi here,
the top is finished and I'm quite happy with it. It's grown bigger than I planned, but that's the problem with liberated triangles. They try to escape :-))
The two colours I showed in my previous post were the only alternatives, they were the only ones in my stash of which I had enough.
The colours in the phote aren't very good, the blue is much more richer and the light reds do sparkle ( as you some of you predicted ).
It will be basted and quilted later this year, but I already see some quilted triangles in the blue background :-)
Tonya, thank you so much for setting up this challenge and thank you all for the help with the colour.

Befreite Dreiecke ( liberated triangles ) 44x37"
Oh, and probably I'll shorten it a bit

The trouble with these sort of blocks is they tend to escape, but it looks as if you've got them under control.

Beautiful photo.
