Tessellation Debut

The blues and yellows pop right out at you---very mesmerizing to me--OK I am drooling a little I know, but I am so proud of this one!!  These are all Joann prints.

The backing came out looking like an ocean of serenity in three different shades.  The light blue side is a sheet that was taking up space in a closet.  How sweet is that!!  This was my first pieced backing and I am in love! 

I used Hobbs Heirloom, (not my fave), but it was worth a try and it made the quilt very heavy for those cold nights coming our way;)  The quilting was done stitch in the ditch style with Sulky Sapphire and bound in polka dots.  The results of the binding were fabulous!!!
This baby is finally done after sitting on my side table for 3 months waiting to be sandwiched and quilted:)  What a sense of accomplishment  **BIG smile**


It's the middle of the week already--September is closing and October's fall season is upon us-I am in love!! 
Time to go sandwich that Lucy Goosey quilt and quilt it up.  I am having my friend Steph shadow me today so she can learn the process.  She has a simple top, her first one, all ready to go.  Should be really fun hanging out and getting some work done;)

Enjoy your Wednesday,

It's beautiful! I love your pieced backing too. And those dots for the binding are just perfect. Just noticed that inner border, which really ties in well with the blocks. Cool project!
