Delectable Mountain Quilt Top is finished

The quilt top is finished, and I'm a happy camper.

When I made the blocks I decided early on to make half of them complete blocks and half mixed, with two fabrics.  Because I used 21 fat eights, I only had so much fabric to work with.  I'm really please with how the quilt top turned out.  I ended up with only one orphan block; talk about cutting it close!

This quilt top measures 76" x 50", a nice size to use for napping or reading a book.

The rest of today is "cleaning the house" day, because we're having our card group here, tomorrow.   Wednesday we go to San Diego, for one of Bob's infusion appointments, and I'll probably go to the zoo.  I love the San Diego Zoo.  Thursday, I'm hoping to get to the quilt back for this beauty.
May your bobbins always be full,
