finish it up Friday, 10/19/12

Welcome to finish it up Friday!
Last night at about 11:30 I finished up my super scrap happy quilt top. It wasn't in the plans to finish it up so quickly, but once I started working on it I couldn't stop. My sister thinks I might need an intervention. :)

Be that as it may......I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!

It measures about 64" x 74".
(I can't stop staring at it!)

If you have a finish to share this week please link up! (Remember to link to a specific blog post.) Thanks for joining me and happy Friday!

Cynthia said...

That is wonderful. So cheerful. Can I ask about how big your slabs are? It looks like they might be fairly big. I'm trying to wrap my brain around doing a project like this. I have bins of scraps that really need to be slimmed down!
