Monday, Monday...

It. Is. Done!

This weekend I finished the Odyssea Quilt:

I decided to go simple on the quilting and stitch in the ditch around the big squares and little squares. I think it turned out really nice! The back is just the print. Originally I had a strip of pieces from the front framed with white strips on either side to go on the back, but after I had them sewn together and everything laid out I didn't like it so much. I like the simplicity of it just the way it is.

And here is the big wonky pinwheel quilt on the design wall:

I think it is totally freaking awesome, and I hope to finish it before next week.  Now of course I can't be working on only one quilt at a time, so tonight it's time to choose new fabric and a new design to work on. I think I'm going green or blue this time. Not sure yet though.

I just love the Odyssea quilt! I keep meaning to make one in a similar design - it's one of my favorites!

Thank you, Mary! I put off doing this design for too long. I love the way it turned out.
