another colour explosion!

A few progress photos first . . .

And here's my completed 'bohemian on point' quilt top. I've used a scrappy selection of both Anna Maria Horner and Outback Wife fabrics, and repeated a few fabrics too. Some blocks merge, some are busy, others not so, and some blow hot & cold, while others are a definite light/dark combo.

I had some self doubt moments about halfway through, but then a few sweet quilty friends gave me some +ve feedback {thank you} and I continued to the end. My finished top measures approx. 54" x 68", without borders.

It's an explosion of colour that's for sure . . .

. . .  but it does make me smile!

Linking up this weekend for another 'peacock party' over at Wendys
and over here at alyciaquilts for 'finished {or not} Friday'
