2016-01-28 11.59.59The Twilters’ Hashtag Quilt is finally finished.  On the Twilters! Facebook group, we exchanged wonky hashtag blocks back in the fall, in a world-wide exchange somehow coordinated by the amazing Carole.  I sent twenty-four blocks and received twenty-four back, from nine states and four countries on three continents.

I added sashing in celery Fairy Frost, and a border from a metalic gold and green fabric.

I think the quilt designs show up best on the the back in these photos.  I drew these both myself, and one was more visually effective than the other.  That’s how we learn.  I used white Bottom Line on the top and light green on the back.

I”m linking up to Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.
