Block-A-Palooza BOM Quilt Top

I have worked on this BOM off and on since 2011.  It was a online quilt along beginning 2011, and had a total of sixteen sampler blocks from various blog designers, with options of three finishings.  I chose the large appliquéd center block finishing instructions with all the sixteen blocks surrounding it.

Here is the completed quilt top, which measures approximately 60" X 90".  Yes it is a big quilt that I want to go on a queen bed in our guest room.  I may have to add some borders on the long sides to make it wider in order to fit the bed nicely.  I think the center appliqué will look really cool centered on the queen bed!

The next few pictures are close ups of the various blocks surrounding the centered appliqué block.

And now, here  are close up pics of each of the three appliquéd flowers.

This BOM was a complex project, and took time and effort to get it to this completion.  I really pushed myself to get this done, as it is done in one of my most favorite lines of fabrics - Sunkissed by Moda.  This is two of three projects that I am doing with this line of fabric.  You can see the other completed project here, using this fabric line.  The last project using this fabric line will be a real simple "Postage Stamp" pattern, which will lay folded simply at the end of the bed on top of this quilt, and will be a nice compliment to each other.

If you haven't guessed, the guest bedroom is my next big project on my to do list around the house.  It will be fun to work on painting, making curtains, and finishing these two quilts for the bed.  So much fun, and so little time. Smile!
