My most recent finish is the quilt top from Alycia's Dakota Inspired mystery quilt-along. This one wasn't much of a mystery for me because I didn't start piecing mine until around the time that Alycia was giving the clues for assembling blocks.
Dakota Inspired, 67.5" x 83.25"
I always enjoy Alycia's mystery quilts because the piecing is fairly easy and goes quickly. I didn't have enough of any single red fabric, so each red churn dash is a different print. Some are red, white & blue prints, others are red tone-on-tones.
I added a border that was cut at 3" wide to finish off the outer edges. I love the way the dark blue fabric frames the rest of the quilt.
My best spot for taking quilt photos is with the quilt or top hanging off the railing of our back deck. It can be tricky if there is too much wind or sun, but I was fairly lucky out there today.
I'm linking up with Can I Get a Whoop Whoop at Confessions of a Fabric Addict and Finished or Not Friday at Alycia Quilts.
