Finished Paintbox Top

Last weekend I was in Las Vegas for a girls trip. We had so much fun. The weather was so warm. I even got a little bit of a tan.

Then it was back to work.....That was mighty hard after the late nights and little sleep.

and then this weekend I was able to finish my Paintbox Quilt Along top. I can't wait to finish this one. It turned out better than I anticipated. I struggled with what to put between the blocks and settled on kind of a stone color. I think it frames the blocks nicely. I had a hard time getting a good picture of it.

I made it with 63 blocks instead of 80.

A little better look at a section of blocks.

It took a little longer to put this together, but I am really pleased with how it turned out. This is kind of a different look for me. I'm not used to using the colored solids. A step away from the muslin. May try some more of this look. All in all a good weekend in the sewing room. I sure do like to sew.... :)
