Happy Birthday

 My youngest son turned 21 this week and I finished his Topsy quilt just in time.




I haven't been able to get outside for proper photos yet, but I took some quick photos when we tried it on his bed yesterday. 





It's the biggest quilt that I've ever made, so I had it custom quilted by my friend Rayna Clinton from Tui Song Quilting in Wellington, New Zealand. We chose the pattern together and I'm really pleased with it.  It's called Snakes Hexagons by Sharon Perry.



I put the wide back Onion Rings by Brandon Mably on the back and I love that too. 



I used the queen size Topsy pattern and used some of my fat quarters, but I added more blocks so the quilt is 100" wide, and almost reaches the floor on a queen sized bed.  All will be clear when we get outside for some photos. I promise to do another post with better photos.


Now it's time for the Peacock Party.  What have you been up to this week? Feel free to link up a recent blog post below.

Every time I see this quilt on your blog or IG I just love it. It's such a great design and the colors you've chosen are wonderful. It looks perfect in his room. I really don't need another project added to my list but this one is in the running for future consideration.

It looks so good in his room, with the rich blue walls. Love that onion layers backing fabric, too!
