Tropical Delight

Well, I'm pleased to say that I have finally finished my one block wonder quilt, which I am dubbing "Tropical Delight" this month - more than five years after I made the top!

With all this snow we've been receiving here in New England, a little bright, tropical inspired quilt can certainly bring a little happiness to an otherwise white and brown landscape.

I used a yellow Oliver & S Modern Workshop print for the binding that I had in my stash.

The top was pieced with fabrics that I got from Joann's a while ago.  I'm pretty sure I was actually still in college, so it was probably 7-9 years ago.

The back is not my usual one fabric backing.  The floral you see here is the same fabric on the front of the quilt, just not all chopped up.

I quilted this one using an Angela Walters inspired floral design in a green So Fine! thread.

I'm very glad to have this one all finished - my goal as part of the "A Lovely Year of Finishes" challenge.
