Turning Four-T top finished

Whew! My Turning Four-T top is entirely finished, and I just love it! Last night at 11.30pm I had put three of the borders on and was just too tired to stitch any longer. Any other day there is no way I could walk away so near to being finished.

And here is a close up of a few blocks and the backing fabric I chose. At first I was thinking I may not use it, but the more I see it, the more I like it.

I've just come home from Lizzy's, she's going to machine quilt the top for me. Lizzy always does a wonderful job, so I can't wait to see it when it's finished.

And the wonderful news is that I can now get back to working on other projects, and even make a Nearly Insane block or two if I choose!

I've never been a huge fan of the T block but this quilt is beautiful!

Vivian said...

The top is lovely. I'm surprised how much movement and variety there is when looking at the entire top.

I agree with Jenny--I need to make a traditional block top. Enough of my misc adventures lately. I want the stability of tradition. Thanks for the inspiration.
