It's done! And... um, yeah - I'm totally keeping it! :) So, with no further delays, I (proudly) present Freebird Window Quilt...
Having an off centered strip down the back is sort of becoming my signature thing. I don't usually plan for it, but for some reason I keep messing up the measurements for the back fabric and have to widen it up. Oops. But I always love the outcome, so... no harm, no foul, right?
I absolutely love the orange fabrics in this line! I think they were the real reason I want to keep this one!
I think the absolute best decision I made on this quilt was to create windows - framing the blocks with white. As I mentioned, I have seen several other quilts with this fabric and they were really - really - busy. I think separating the colors with just an inch of white really made all of the difference. I love the blocks - each with a contrast - but the white frames created a showcase for each block, rather than ending up with a holy nightmare of colors trying to compete right next to each other. Wow, that was a long explanation. ;)
