quilt #2 for swaziland

swazi quilt  top #2, backlit

finished this quilt top at 7:30 this morning. it's based on the new wave quilt by oh, fransson! i say "based" because i pretty much just looked at the picture and figured it out because i hate following instructions. nevertheless, credit where credit is due.

see that fabric? remember awhile back when i won some anna maria horner fabrics on a giveaway? i've been hoarding it for awhile, sitting in dark closets and rubbing my hands together while chuckling to myself in a creepy fashion whilst daydreaming of how i would put it to use. this seemed like the time and place.

i like taking pictures of these things with light shining behind them, even if the quality isn't great. hopefully i will look good quilted, but i'm just going to keep pumping out tops for awhile before i start that part. i can only handle so much of that quilting rack and the wedding quilt was so crazy that i need a good long break.
