Neapolitan Finish

It's the most beautiful fall day today, very warm, but cooling off in  the evening. I'm determined to enjoy eating my lunch and supper on the deck while it is still possible!

I've got a finish today! Neapolitan is bound, labelled, and washed. It's ready for the use of our guests arriving next week.

I'm very satisfied with the way it turned out. It's got just the random look I was trying for. I learned a lot along the way: from calculating the sizes of the blocks so that they would fit together, to learning a new FMQ pattern for it. (See my last post for the tutorial.)

I'm waiting for more fabric for my spinning stars quilt along baby quilt, so I've pulled out all my strings and started work on a scrap quilt. It will be mine, all mine, to snuggle under on the couch.
I'm using the pattern in Sunday Morning Quilts, Candy Coated, as a guide. I already see some changes coming!

Till next time,
