ALYoFinish it up Friday!

"Weathered Wood"
60 x 75

Friday and the end of the month...all is good!
I am posting my finish for the month, the "Barn Door" from the QAL over at Sarah Quilts. I am so happy with my finish. I am even more excited that it was all from my stash. 

It was cold enough outside that the tape kept freezing and letting go so I had to just lay it down for pics. 

I used the other hour glass block on the back and then used more stash fabrics to piece it all together.
I kept with the Barn door theme and tried to quilt it up with a giant "Z" and I think the placement of some of the fabrics lend themselves to the idea of slats of wood. 

It just goes to show that making yourself use what you have sometimes can be surprising. :)  I really love this one and I think it is my largest quilt yet on my home machine.

Isn't it great to be able to make an entire quilt from stash fabrics?? So beautiful, wonderful job. I like the back as much as the front.

Love the colors! I also love getting to use only stash fabrics in a quilt. Good job!
Quilting it in a Z was genius! Love that idea. And, I love the colors. They work so well together. Yay for successful stash use :-)
Love it! The title is such a great match.

It looks great! I really like the wood effect of some of the fabrics. And the back is brilliant. Great idea to add the hourglass. Well done!
