Design Wall Monday--A Finished Top

 It's Design Wall Monday.  See more design walls on Judy's Small Quilts and Doll Quilts blog. 

The Greenpiece BOM is a finished top at last.  I sewed the last border sections on with only some difficulty, namely that I trimmed before I should have and had to add an extra piece to the bottom border.  Then I sewed the bottom border on upside down.  Sigh.  Directional print...

So satisfying to see it all together at last. 

I love the way the border picks up so many of the block colors. 

The join I had to make in the bottom corner blends in pretty well from a distance...

...and is just a little more noticeable closer up. 

Lots of leftover fabrics from each month's kits will go into the scrap bins and fat quarter drawers.  I will have to purchase backing but plan to send this out to be professionally quilted.  

Mini has been waiting a long time for the Greenpiece quilt box to be emptied, LOL!

I think we all have one of "those" borders. Your quilt turned out beautiful! The border really does add the finishing touch.

What a lovely finish! The border really accents the center and makes everything shine.

So beautiful, Annie!
Of course, there had to be an "upside down" moment along the way.
I think you did a great job piecing the floral.
You should be so proud of this--I think you must be. :)

The border and the blocks go together so well. Good piecing of the border - had to hunt to find where you had pieced it. Beautiful quilt!

Your Greenpiece finish is beautiful -- what an accomplishment! Your applique is just exquisite. And seeing your kitty taking up residence in the project box reminds me of a picture book we had when I was little, "My Cat Likes to Hide in Boxes!" :-)

Absolutely gorgeous! It looks almost painted rather than done with fabric. Congrats on a beautiful finish.
