one more finish

I've made a real effort lately trying to finish a few things
{and then I figure I can start a new some thing!}

... and now auntbetsquilt my moderne utility quilt, is finished too
I really enjoyed making this little quilt, and am tempted to make another in different colours!

It's a simple scrappy design,
with large pieces perfect for your special fabrics to shine
and with the 1/4 log cabin and flying geese blocks to add some 'quilty' interest

with Myra  over here at busyhandsquilts this week
and with Ann & Kaja for the monthly 'Ad Hoc Improv Quilter' here


  1. Good on you for getting things finished!! This quilt is so pretty, I love the way the simplicity lets the fabrics do the talking and then mixed pieced rows add a wonderful variety of shapes.
