A Finish to Start the Week on Design Wall Monday

It isn't often that I get to start the week with a finish. I hope that it's an omen of more good things to come. I'm calling this my Sweet Little Kisses quilt and in the end it got too big for the wall, hence the wonky angle floor picture.



It looks so fresh and summery and I am so happy to have a nice wide swath of those roses encircling the little kiss blocks.


No two blocks are identical - I decided on the cornerstones all  being the same fabric - make the picture bigger and you can see it is a diagonal print pink fabric with big and little polka dots along with some red, yellow and aqua - so much goodness wrapped up in one little square.

As I was taking pictures Big Dude came by to inspect and for the price of a couple of kitty treats I secured his approval!


I have to put together a back but I'm sure there is something in my stash. I already made the binding using that red gingham check fabric you can see to the left of  Big Dude's tail. So, when I get this back from the long arm quilter I will be ready to truly finish it.

Hope you and me  have a productive week!
Happy stitching-
carol fun

That pattern and the fabrics you used has a very 'retro' feel to it. Neat!
