I made great progress yesterday, during the snow day on my Riley Blake Challenge quilt. We were one of the lucky ones, not to lose power during the snow/ice storm we had in North Carolina.
“A fine day” quilt top is done!!! Cheers and celebrations, as I did not enjoy having a deadline that is for sure.
I changed my original design, as I loved the rectangular improvisational blocks and did not want to take away from them. I have just started using Instagram (ml_wilkie), and loved it as a process/feedback tool during making this quilt. Thank you to all those who offered advice for block color choices and the sashing aspects (or no sashing as it turns out).

I was so excited to get snow photos too, however we get so much sun in our yard, so it was hard to avoid shadows. In the end, I hope this one in the shadows (indirect light) works.
Here are the links, to my other posts, if you are interested in the progress of this quilt:

I am trying out spray basting, so this is already basted. Now, onto the quilting and binding!! Linking up with Amanda Jean @ Crazy Mom quilts for Finish it Friday + TGIFF which is being hosted by MR @ Quilt Matters, this week.

I love how all the colours come together! I can definitely see the different times of the sun in the blocks 🙂
Fantastic! I love how those lovely bursts of color are all nestled next to each other!
Spectacular quilt—such clever design work!!
