The tropical quilt is completed!!!


I finally finished my quilt! This morning I had my husband Luke hold it for a quilt photo shoot :)

This is the quilt front. I wish I could tell you EVERYTHING about the quilt, but I can't :( I am giving the quilt away to someone very special to me and I don't want to risk writing the person's name in case the person stumbles across my blog. Here's what I can say: the quilt is a "mystery quilt" which I started in July and finished this month. My quilting instructor told us to buy dark, medium dark, medium, and light fabric is specific quantities. Each week she would give us another step, but we had no idea what the end product would look like. I am so happy with my color choices!

The back fabric looks like the ocean!

I quilted it myself primarily by stiching in the ditch.


Here is an up close shot of one of the quilt blocks.

I have put the most time and effort into this quilt, much more than any other item I have made and I am so proud of it!!  I must say, it's hard to give this away, but it is going to someone that deserves it and will appreciate it. This is my second quilt and there will be many more to come.


  1. Wowza! This is one AMAZING quilt. It's so beautiful. That will be one very lucky (and happy) recipient!! Great job!

  2. Thanks, Debi!!! I am so proud of it, I just wish I could be there when the person opens it!
