Group Quilt Top is finished

The quilt top for next year's auction is finished! 
The pattern is called "Warm Breeze" and is by Sarah Maxwell and Dolores Smith. It is in the McCall's Quick Quilts magazine Feb/March issue.
















There are 85 whirlygig blocks in this fun quilt top made from 6 quilters' stashes. Even though each quilter's 1/4" seam is different, we managed to get the blocks together quite easily. 
The only guidelines we used in making the blocks - use bright fabrics and a blue background. It is interesting to look at the quilt and try to guess which quilter made which block! You can see that everyone's definitions of the guidelines were different :)  But it all works together.
We are ahead of schedule this year so there will be lots of time to get the quilting done over the winter.
