barn raising

i really am in LOVE with this quilt! it is my hubby's new favorite!! he loves the bold and bright like i do! :) i did a simple straight line quilting on this and LOVED it. it's nice to do something different every once in awhile. i sure do wish i was a better photographer.
i don't know it you can see the pattern (from quilting) on the back - it is sooooo fun!!

i tried to take a bigger picture of it but i don't think that you can see it. but the back is fun and it was a duvet that i bought at a second hand store for 6$. it was queen size and it has made two backs for me. the other one went on the oh cherry oh quilt.
i used some of my last bit of katie jump rope. i have just a bit left to go in a star quilt i started last year that i did carry over into this year. this quilt was supposed to be square but i didn't want a square quilt so i took two rows off from each side. to me it worked and i was happy!!! hope you have a great day!!

  11. I really love it. Great way to find a backing. I'm going to start looking around better. Guess I never thought of cutting something up for backs. And yours is so cute with the colors of the quilt.

  21. Isn't it special to find just the thing you need to finish a quilt.
    At first I thought you had found Oh Cherry Oh fabric. It's even better as the price states.
    I love thrift stores.
