I've been working on getting my brown and blue blocks into a top and now they are! I started this quilt at least two, maybe three years ago. I decided it needed to be bigger so I put it on the back burner for a while while I gathered more fabrics. This is earmarked for Quilts on Valor in Colorado. I still need to piece the backing but I'm tickled to have found enough fabric in my stash to make a backing for it. Hum, the blues are less vivid in person. This is "Shoe Boxes" by Atkinson Designs.
