Delirium! Done!

 
 
Its done!  Its called Delirium because while laying on the couch on Christmas day with a fever it suddenly occurred to me how to use these blocks to make a quilt that would be done, completed, finished, and out of the UFO pile!
 
 
 
 
The blocks are from Crazy Mom Quilts 36 block quilt along which she started in July of 2011. 
 
I had 12 blocks made, no intention of making more and decided to use a wide 4 inch sashing in between the blocks and a 6 inch border in Kona Steel.  I like this new color, it is a nice option to Coal which I have used as a medium dark grey in the past.
 
 
 
The back is Michael Miller Flannel Ginger Blossom Bouquet Toss by Sandi Henderson that I had grabbed on sale some time ago and had in stash. It coordinated with the grey and pops the colors on the front.  The binding is Pomegranate Kona, also used in one of the blocks on the front. 
 
It finished up washed and ready to go at aprox 55 x 70, perfect for Daddy and doggy!

  1. GREAT finish! You're very creative when you're delirious - it's a brilliant solution, and I love how it really showcases each of the 36-patch blocks.
