My Favorite Block Quilt Along–Finished Quilt Tops and Prize Winners!
I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful memorial day weekend! I know that my family and I definitely are. Well – today, finished quilt tops for the ‘My Favorite Block Quilt Along’ were due in order to qualify for the prizes. Let’s see who finished!
Quilt top from KrisTMJ
I used 12 out of the 20 blocks in the quit along. I made a couple of the blocks twice and put one on the back. Kind of scrappy and kind of fun.

The traditionalist in me – I decided to use a sashing and cornerstone setting with wide border. Finished size is 66.5″ x 80″.

Quilt Top by Me – Persimon Dreams!
I purposely attempted to group blocks with similar fabrics together to create a sense of ‘movement’ throughout the quilt. What do you think of this layout? Or would you rather the colors be scattered more randomly throughout the top?
I love seeing how by using different fabrics and different layouts – five completely different quilt tops were created!
So – if you didn’t finish your top yet – don’t let that deter you! Finish it up – we still want to see how all these great blocks go together in all the different fabrics everyone has chosen! I’ll still blog about your quilt so be sure to add it to the flickr group when the top is together AND when it’s quilted!
It’s time – let’s see who won the generous prizes!
I put the four qualifying quilts into the bowl (I disqualified myself from winning) and of course let my adorable kiddo’s pick the winners!
