April 2015 Lovely Year of Finishes

Yippee!!  I am so glad I finished my quilt this month!  This quilt was made by a group of quilters in my little town.  Our challenge last year was to make a row quilt.  We got to choose our own fabrics and make the first row to determine the width of the quilt, then passed it along to the other ladies for a month so they could make a row for our quilt.  I chose to try a low volume quilt using creams and tans with a pop of color using sage greens and burgundy.  It was made with a very special friend in mind, so it matches her living room. 
Here it is hanging in my local quilt show that happened last Friday and Saturday.  After the show was over, I took it to my friend to "show" her.  She loved it and then I had to show her the back and then had her read the label which showed that it was hers.  She was so surprised and cried.  Best reaction EVER!!! 
I am linking up with Fiber of All Sorts for this Lovely Year of Finishes!
