Topped up Klosjes

Here it is ..... my klosjes are now a top!!! Oh, happy days, for sure!

Looking at this photo taken from far way, I could have placed some of the darker blocks a bit better. I guess that I'm just standing too close to my design wall and didn't see the placement until now. Too late, this is the final layout. I'm very happy with it. :o)

This morning, the top got laid out on our bed and it sure looks good .... sorry, forgot to take a photo of it!

Have a great day, eh!

Oh wow! Stunning! The darks look fine to me. What a fantastic quilt!
My verification word is 'dullswo'. What kind of word is that? It sure doesn't describe your quilt, which is the exact opposite - bright and interesting!

Meredith said...

It looks great. Nice and bright.

Raewyn said...

Gorgeous!! You must be so pleased!!

Teresa said...

Absolutely beautiful...that sure did turn out well. I've enjoyed watching this grow!

I like your rod that you photograph tops on...did you make it? Could you describe it in your blog (or an email) some time at your convenience?

In stitches,
Teresa :o)

Are you going to hand quilt??

Mary Lou Casada said...

Your quilt top is so cool! I think your darks are beautifully distributed. Since I know exactly what you mean about being too close to the design wall, though, I thought I'd recommend a tool (we love gadgets! :-D) -- a Reducing Glass (seen here: http://www.suppliesnet.com/reducing-glass-3-in.aspx) I can stand across the room with it, and it gives me that distance perspective! Blessings!

Teresa said...
