I pieced this scrappy top at the beginning of the year, had it about 1/3 of the way quilted and noticed my tension was whacked. I'd used black thread (on black fabric) and I just couldn't see it well enough to frog it, so I ended up scalping it... that was the first time I'd ever resorted to a razor blade!

Then I reloaded it and quilted it, so at long last it's done! This pattern is called "Flower Boxes" by Heather Mulder Peterson. I used up some of my really old scraps in this one!

LOVE it! Worth the scalping. I have a crib-sized quilt waiting for that treatment. Funny I always have something I'd rather do...

The black is great, I never tire of squares, and the quilting is excellent, worth the effort.

Really attractive! I'm not a quilted, but your quilt made me think, maybe?

Thanks everyone! I use all my quilts, they're made to be used, abused and enjoyed :). Once they get too ratty for the house, they go in our vehicles. Picnic blankets, road trips, whatever :).

I LOVE the pattern and the choice of fabrics was really inspired.
Lovely work on your part. It's great to see what can be accomplished.

Funny, I don't remember being absentminded.

Great work!

What batting did you use - it looks like it has some real loft to it?

I love the black -
