another finished top

I have finished my top and I'm happy with it. It sort of took on a life of it's own from what I first envisioned. It was very liberating for me. I decided to use my original words instead of being my usual unliberated self and making new ones. I was very happy with my words when I first made them but then as I started to see everyone else's, mine didn't seem so great anymore. Sometimes, envy isn't such a good thing.
I'll be quilting this by machine since it a good size....I'm thinking baptist fans. Not sure what color thread to use.
I think all the quilts that have been posted are awesome.....it's so inspiring to see how everyone else has made their words and used the different patterns and colors. I'm very glad to be a part of this challenge. I wish everyone a very Happy Easter.

Gorgeous, vibrant quilt! I love the wedges in the border.

Yes, I love it when a quilt takes on a life of it's own. Mine almost always end up differently than I first envisioned. But that's okay, because it's usually an improvement :)

Love it! I have log cabin envy! ( Luckily, I know the cure!) How do you do baptist fans by machine? I am struggling with this.

Absolutely FANTASTIC!

I totally understand your comment about "envy" and thinking what you did isn't "good enough" or needs to be "redone" ... goes on at my house all the time (and I keep trying to pack it up and ship it off!)

You should be very VERY pleased with your flimsy!!!!!
