Finished the Scrappy Blossom



The Scrappy Pineapple Blossom top is finished! Not a very good picture , but I did a cut 1½" dark red inner border and the outside border is cut 3½" navy blue print.

I pieced a backing from the leftover pieces of homespun and brushed cotton from the Buggy Barn tree skirt and a couple of FQ's of brushed cottons. It turned out dark and doesn't show up in a picture at all, so you'll just have to take my word for it! Also made the binding. Just need to make up a label now and oh, yes, quilt it!

And, I've decided to start posting my quilty new years resolutions as I think of them -- kind of a test to see how long my good intentions last -- I'm going to post them on the right hand side of my blog!

Beautiful! The dark border really sets it off nicely. I just scrolled back - looks like you started this on November 27th! Wow, you worked FAST!!! It has been fun seeing this pattern worked up in different color schemes. It is definately on my to-do list!

Cheers!

I'm working on a scrappy blossom, also and I love how yours turned out. A bit envious that you have yours done, but happy for you.VBG The grandkids are lovely, and I applaud you for making the effort-joyful- to make such wonderful memories with them.
