Paper Petals Quilt - back

I designed this quilt back in December 2012, and made it up over January and February this year.

Paper Petals Quilt

I really enjoyed using the Noteworthy collection, by Sweetwater, for Moda, to make this quilt.  It was really hard not to share progress pictures and the finished quilt once I was done.

Apart from the back and the borders, this whole 90" square quilt was paper pieced.  No way could I have done this quilting - it was done by the talented Sue Burnett.

I saw this in Fat Quarterly. It is wonderful, I love the colours and your little corners, kaleidoscope quilts are some of my favourites.

Oh, I love this! I've been dreaming of finding time to make a kaleidoscope quilt and I think your version with the little pink sqaures will be a winner! I just wonder why I always get access the Fat Quarterly long after others write about it. I want to read it NOW! PS: Congrats on getting a pattern in the mag!
