DOUBLE DELIGHT - FINISHED

I'm doing the happy dance LOL __ can you see me? FA LALALA !! I'm all finished with the Double Delight quilt from Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville site ( at least the top is done! ) And,,, I really really like how it came out!!DSC02293 Those mitered corners kicked my butt! I worked and worked on them but they finally look great! Here's is one corner DSC02292 and here is another DSC02296 I didn't take pictures of the other two cause they are in the grass.. but I think they came out just swell! AND it doesn't ripple when I had it laid out on the floor.. it is all nice and flat just as it should be !! HAPPY DANCE!! The quilt is 83-1/2 inches square, bigger than I planned but that's ok - I had plenty of fabric to work with.... and it was all from stash! A true stashbuster quilt!

I have a whole lot of the apple fabric left, so I'm going to use it for the back,, and there just might be enough to make a couple of pillow cases ( OH! guess I have to get the left over fabrics, like the greens and reds, too! )
Once again,,, playing with fabrics and designs in Electric Quilt makes the idea look good when it becomes reality. Whoo-hhooo! (( I'm too sexy for this quilt, too sexy for this quilt... LOL ))
I think I'm going to use the dark green for the binding,, that should look good.

If you remember, my friend tirane93 and I were making the same quilt in different colors...
HEY, tirane! got yours done yet??
