A Finish and Closing in on 500!

I finally finished Alye's quilt! And just in time, too! She's reaching so many milestones all at once! Turning 18, going to the prom, and then graduation. Remember all that fun? Anyway, here's the quilt.
It's approximately 62x71 after washing and drying. It is based on the double slice quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Co., but I added sashing. I did straight line quilting close to this design.
And here's a view with a bit of the back showing.
The back is all the floral fabric. My daughter said it was cool because the front looked more modern but the back looked a little old fashioned.
Stay tuned cause I'll be participating in a blog hop soon and will have goodies to show. Also, this is post 498! Two more til 500! I am going to just rope it into the Giveaway Day through Sew Mama Sew so stayed tuned for that as well!

Wow. Beautiful quilt. I really like the way you did that and the colors. It looks really cool laid on the steps like that too. :-)
