leftovers quilt top

I finished my leftovers quilt top last night. I REALLY LOVE this one! The odd ball block in warm colors is a very fun addition. It adds just the right amount of ZING!
Today is a snow day and my kids are home from school, which means I had photography help. (Yay!!!) It's really hard to convey the scale of the quilt in the photo. It doesn't look that big, but I was standing on a 4' pile of snow. The top measures 68" x 90 something. So, it's a decent size. :)

Too bad I couldn't spend the rest of the day quilting it........

I love this, I especially love the pink block, just adds that extra little pop. Also I'm totally jealous of all your snow :)

Fantastic! I love the pop of red in there.

Your quilt looks extra-stunning against the beautiful backdrop of snow, Amanda Jean. Fab idea to pop that warm block in there too!

Ah, the pros and cons of a snow day. Didn't get done what I had planned but finished up some other things because the kids were home. And we enjoyed a sledding party with friends.
