2012-2013 Mystery Block of the Month

To say I am excited about this finish is an understatement.  From the minute I found out that the 2012-2013 Mystery Block of the Month from www.fatquartershop.com was going to use Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille I couldn't wait to begin.  I finished the quilt up last night and took the photos this morning. 
 
 






Two of my favorite blocks in the quilt.  I love, love, love the grey and red one!


 
I purchased a different fabric for the backing than the one that was offered in the program.  The grey pebble fabric in the photo above will be the backing.  I am making a phone call to a new (to me) long arm quilter who is much much closer to my house to have this one quilted.  I have been quilting my own quilts for the last 3 years and decided it was time to have one quilted by someone else.  The best thing is that this is mine, all mine.  I have never made a quilt for me, they always go to someone else.

How exciting! I am working on mine, but I didn't order the finishing kit. Yours is the first one I've seen finished. I love it!
