Another quilt top finished!

I’d designed this one in Illustrator a couple of weeks ago. It was very quick to sew up once I got started.

The only step that’s a bit more difficult is squaring up the bias piecing.

But I put the finished piecing up on my design wall, mark where I want to cut and then I cut away. Admittedly it would be really hard to do on a quilt that’s too big for my design wall. This 60″ x 75″ large throw pushed the limits!

I can’t wait to quilt this one – the quilting is going to add so much to it.

One another note – check back here Monday because I’ll be launching my 4th Annual Action Kivu fundraiser! Can’t wait to see you then.

    I live in Colorado and those look like Bronco colors to me. I like it.

    I was just wondering if it was Action Kivu time again! I’ve never tried piecing like this and it looks like fun!

    Looks great! I especially love the dark background color. Can’t wait to see how it quilts up.
