As promised...

Here are a couple of photos of my latest finished quilt! Yippee...a finish!! I love how this quilt turned out.

It's bright and cheerful and yet a bit on the pastel side - at least it seems that way to me. Not normally a color palette I use. It's based quite loosely on Kaffe's "Ice Cream" Quilt although I didn't vary strip widths as he did. Each strip is 2 1/2" wide.

The quilting pattern is called "Interlocking Daisies" and it's perfect for this simple quilt. It's not too heavily quilted as to be stiff as a board - it's flexible and soft and cuddly.

 I used Kaffe's Spot in Lavendar for the binding and I just love the polka dots as the finishing touch!

I made this quilt because it was an easy one to take to class to work on and it's turned out to be one of my favorites!

I love this quilt It is so beautiful. There are just too many pretty fabrics. I would love to cover my walls with them but must settle for looking at them and someday using in a quilt.

So pretty. The fabrics are just busy enough to make the edges of the seams soft looking ... no hard lines of change. Lovely colors.

Just Beautiful Terri!! Love the fabrics you used. I've been thinking about making a 2-1/2" stripped quilt. I have lots of leftover batik strips that would look nice. How big is this one?

Kaffe does make gorgeous fabric, and you put it together beautifully. This looks like something he would have designed -- you captured the essence perfectly. And I DO love the binding!
