FQ`s are Fantastic! Use them

I had started this project many months ago and Rose Marie loved it and made her own. You can scroll her blog by clicking on her name. I had thought I had it done but when I took it out I had one side row of squares to do.
It is just random FQ`s selected and put together I got the pattern from Simple Graces Kim Diehl`s book her books are so FQ friendly, if you click on her name you will see all her books and the Simple Graces book has this quilt on the cover,
I had lost my bag in my studio somewhere of the fabrics that I had used so could not get the side boarder done…until tonight! I found it and pieced the 2 rows of blocks to make my Pie in the Sky. I had added another row but I think I am also going to put another boarder on the 2 sides I have a piecing idea that I am going to try out.
These are just a few shots so that you can see the fabrics that I used. You would never think they went together…believe me the piecing is all random the instructions in the book was perfect. There is no wasted fabric…LOVE IT!!  just click on the pictures if you would like a closer view.
i have been laying the quilts out on the lawn and DH has come to help me fold the quilts when done. He knows just how to fold them so that the material is not stretched. I think he loves quilting as much as I do.
This one will be my first big stitch quilt that I am going to do. It will be a perfect union….I just have to get that other boarder on both sides that won`t take to long.. I have the fabric now…LOL
