Sweet 16 QAL Quilt Top Complete

The last week has been busy. My husband's sister is trying to sell her Mom's house in Oklahoma so that they can move to Texas to be closer to us. We have been serving as "house hunters" for her on this end, driving to several places to check out houses and properties. As much as I love house-hunting, it takes time from my quilting, and I am selfish with quilting time! So I am late to the Sweet 16 Quiltalong linky party for this week but I've been there in spirit.

I completed the final row of the Reverse Rainbow Starburst in blues, and I love the transition from dark blue to teal to light blue. It may be my favorite row.

I had a couple of starts and stops on a choice of color for the borders. My husband helped me finally decide on blue and white to frame it. I added a final border of Draw Near Paint Pallette by Quilting Treasures, which is one of my favorite fabrics - I love the little paint boxes and color names.

The quilt top is complete! Today I will piece a quilt back and then decide on using white or a color for the binding. Can't believe it is already Wednesday!


  1. Hello Linda! Congratulations on getting your quilt top finished! It looks beautiful and I love that last row too! Fabulous colours!! Enjoy the rest of the week and I hope you get some quilting time! :) xx

  2. A beautiful quilt and such lovely color blends. You both did well choosing the borders. Enjoy the weekend.

  3. I love the Reverse Rainbow in blues. Wow, this is my favorite combination of colors. You really do astound me with all that you manage to accomplish.

    1. Awww Pattie you are sweet. :) I love the combo also - thinking of doing an enitre quilt in blues!

  4. Oh, its gorgeous, Linda! Such a great design!

  5. I'm sorry to hear you have had some rough times in life lately. Nice to hear that you are back to your quilting. Hope it is soothing for you while you are healing.
    Love the rainbow quilt! Last year I made a scrappy rainbow patchwork and love the bright colors. The back of yours is gorgeous! Enjoying reading through some of your older posts!
