Text Top Finished

The blocks I made during my weekend retreat last weekend
are sewn together and the top is completed!
This quilt is so much fun to look at and see what the blocks are saying.

The pieces with color are making circles throughout the top.
Some of the color is subtle and blends a little into the background.

It took a while to collect all of the text fabrics and
I was able to find some fun pieces. 

Here are some of my favorites...
just happenstance... not fussy cutting.


This top is ready for quilting.
I found a pretty orange fabric for the backing and binding.

The seventh block of my applique quilt is finished.
This block has a lot going on in it
and it's not my favorite.

This block will be added to these...
only five more to go!

Happy Friday!
Happy Quilting!

LOVE the "text" quilt...such an interesting and clever idea to incorporate text in with the other blocks....Bet it's great fun to get up close and personal with this piece.

What a fun quilt Ramona! The bright colors looks so great against the low volume background! I love that some are vivid and other tend to fade into the background a little bit. You know I'll be waiting for you to finish this so I can pin it on my low volume quilting board!
your applique blocks are just perfect - really wonderful work and i love them all!
