Spools A'Plenty - check

The order with the background fabric I needed to complete my Spools A'Plenty quilt arrived yesterday!  WooHoo!!!!  Today I spent most of the day getting it to the flimsy stage. 
 
I hope you don't mind if I take a few minutes to pat myself on the back.  I've been all over the place with projects and such so I'm quite proud that I finished it.  :-)
I know exactly which fabric I'd like to use for the backing and binding. 
Spools A'Plenty with Tapestry
both by Fig Tree Quilts
It obviously needs a very good pressing so please ignore the wrinkles and such. 
 However, if the wrinkles bother you then by all mean avert your eyes.  LOL
 
I hope your days have been pieceful.  I've been peeking in over your shoulders and you've all been busy, busy, busy.  I do believe your days have been very pieceful. 
 
I so appreciate your visits - come again very soon.
 
In Friendship!

Great quilt, as always, Darlene. I'm glad the police didn't stop you from making this top, it's stunning.

It's lovely! But I can't believe you don't have it quilted yet. LOL! It would probably take me several weeks to accomplish what you do in a day. three Cheers for Darlene!!

I love spools and yours are wonderful. Love the little triangle border too. I have always wanted to do that in a border but I'm not a triangle point maker. Well, you know.
