trail marker quilt top

The nice thing about going back to an old, forgotten project is that sometimes it’s a pretty quick finish…

(which makes me wonder why I put it away without finishing it way back when!)

Another good thing is that absence makes the heart grow fonder. When I first started making this one I wasn’t completely sold, but happily, now that I’ve pulled it out and finished up the top, I’m quite smitten!

    Oh my, I don’t remember it, but I, too, love it now! I love that last pic of it laying on the flowers. Nice contrast. (Morgan went above and beyond w/this one…8-)

    It’s so pretty! I love how even though it incorporates a bunch of colors, it still seems very neutral! Beautiful!

    It’s beautiful! I love the combination of colours you choose, particularly the background mix of neutrals which work really well to add dimension. By the way, the field of flowers is quite magnificent as a backdrop…reminds me of springtime in Holland.

    Love the quilt and LOVE the bluebells! I miss that the most from my time living in England – woods filled with bluebells in spring

    Loving this quilt top, the triangles are lovely, I like that it is a little random and as someone said it has movement. I am just finishing up a triangle quilt, nowhere near as nice as this!

    Nothing like neutrals for a calming effect. I’ve bookmarked but I will never outlive my bookmark list. So many quilts-so little time! N
