Just a One Block Wonder

Well, this quilt is finally done!  Crossed off my list!  Done!
A full shot of the quilt.

Details:  68" x 84-1/2" (before quilting and washing:  70-1/2" x 87-3/4")
Started:  Nov. 2015
Top finished:  Feb. 2016 ... it took a while to find the backing which was accomplished on my trip to Toronto for the quilt show at Black Creek Village in July of 2017.
Batting used:  80/20 poly cotton
Machine quilted by lovely Tella in Scarborough.  

A better look at the size of the quilt.  This photo gives that impression very well when you see it with the other quilts.
The fabric in the outer border (on the right) was the fabric used.  That fabric sure has a lot of movement in it.
The backing fabric used and my label.  Gotta have labels on your quilts!
Close-up shots of some of the blocks.  Making those blocks was something that was really enjoyable to do.  Twirling those triangles around to get that just perfect look while not duplicating a block. 

What else am I working on?  A jelly roll challenge.  This is all that you will see for now as this is a challenge at my day guild and it has to remain a secret until June meeting.  I will take photos and post all about it later.  The itch to just work on this is so tempting.
What else am I working on?  Sewing binding on this quilt using leftover fabrics from my One Block Wonder.  Guess what ... there are still have pieces left of the paisley fabric.  This would be a good time to just cut those pieces into squares and put in my bins ready to use for another scrap quilt.
There are other stuff that are being worked on, but that will be for another post.

Have a great stitching day!

Wow this quilt is amazing....incredible to think it's just one fabric trhrough out! Well done..and the wait for the backing was worth it, it's perfect! Out of interest, how much fabric did you start off with for the top? PS Well done on working through your ufo are having some beautiful finishes :-)

I love your OBW. Some fabrics you think will work and they aren't so great. Your fabric was perfect, just enough difference in the values and parts of the print. I like your border treatment too.
