1st Finish

I finished Hot and Cold, a quilt top I made in May 2008.  This quilt is wonky string blocks made with hot colors in one set of block and cool colors in the alternate blocks.  I'd started quilting it the Fall of 2010, having half of it completed.  For some reason, I set it aside and never got back to it until now.  The quilting is free flowing wonky lines to keep with the theme.  I used two different threads while quilting to coordinate with the blocks.  I found the perfect binding fabric in my stash that I cut on the bias.  These are not the best pictures of this quilt; it a little too large to photograph inside at home.  I'll try to get a better photo at work later this week.



  1. Great quilt. Glad you got back to it and it didn't languish unfinished forever.

  2. This is a very fun quilt. Love the name! Good job getting it finished.

  3. I love the colours in that quilt. And the free form string piecing.

  4. Love the bright colors. Congratulations on your 1st finish!
