A Trophy

. . . at least to me it is!

I took it outside to show the true colors.

On the back I added triangles to act as a sleeve - so I can hang it.

Look at how puckery and yummy it is.
This quilt has been in progress for a while now - each step has posed a new challenge, new skill to master. Well kinda, I'm not a perfectionist - that takes more than I am able to give :) But I have so enjoyed the process, being self-taught I am typically eager to find something new to figure out. So, here's my trophy of learning new skills, and undying effort. At times it felt like it would never end! If you care to look - I blogged about this project here, here, here and here!

My plan is to keep this little treasure, hopefully hang it around here somewhere. I don't know if I could bear to part with it :) To celebrate it's completion, I cut into a stack of Olive Rose fat quarters I got from Valori Wells herself!
