Georgia Toffee Bars quilt

I have finished the Georgia Toffee Bars quilt from the Mar/Apr. issue (#2) of Irish Quilting magazine. It didn't take long to make and I mostly used fabric that I had on hand. I had to purchase the lively outer border print (not something I would ordinarily use) and I found what I needed at walmart in the precut aisle. The quilt is about 72" by 80". It looks remarkably like the one in the magazine!! I am quite pleased with the way it has turned out, even though the lack of variety of colors (fatquarters) made the colors "bunch up" some. We have had some interesting weather this weekend. Both Sat. and Sun. have been extremely cloudy and rain all day Sat. The temp never got above 68 degrees F both days. I'm glad summer is almost over. The poor kids will have to go back to school soon, and the Comm.Coll Fall session starts even before that!

Hi June, your turn has finally come to choose a prize from my Boulderneigh bloggiversary celebration! I still have the MP3 player or can make you some photo notecards. Let me know if either of those interest you, and send me your snailmail addy.
