Skill Builder BOM Finished!!

It's finished!  I love how it turned out.  It was a fun BOM and I enjoyed learning new skills and practicing some that I don't do very often.  I really like learning the freezer paper method for paper piecing, so much less paper to peel off at the end. 
I just smile every time I look over at it.  Hopefully it all washes up well.  There is always that slight fear when washing a new quilt for the first time.  They have all held up so far, hopefully this is one does the same.  

I love the back too.  It is fun with the different blocks of color.   I still can't decide if I like the quilt as you method as well as quilting a whole quilt though. It is much easier to quilt smaller blocks but I don't know if I like adding the sashing at the end.  I have been wanting to try this method here.  I will have to test it out one of these quilts.
It's so exciting to have another finish to add for the year.  Hopefully 2015 is just as good.

  1. Holy Cow that is one gorgeous quilt! I so wanted to do that BOM but just couldn't fit it in.
    I'm working on a QAYG quilt but just log cabin blocks… and I'll have to add the backing at the end.
