Indian Trails - a fine finish!

I am so delighted to be able to share my OMG finish for March.   Here is the original post committing  to the One Monthly Goal with Elm Street Quilts ..............

http://scrapboxquilts.blogspot.com/2017/03/indian-trails-omg-for-march-17.html

It was another huge endeavour where I spent many an afternoon quilting on this one.  I used the walking foot in some places;  then I grew into FMQ.  It might be hard to see in the photo.  I FMQ a design in all 82 black & white squares on the quilt.  I also used FMQ with a very long ruler to quilt on the outermost border and the gold separating trim.  I didnt get a photo of the back, but that has a mix of lovely black and white print fabrics.  It took a few very large pieces to get it covered.

This monster ended up  92 x 112.  The colorful arrow blocks are all scrappy strips and pieces.  It began as an RSC16 project over at SoScrappy.  DH and another very tall man needed to stand on chairs for me to get a full photo at church, and it still dragged on the floor.




This huge finish is a celebration for me so I am happily sharing this week  over at:

Monday  --  Patchwork Times
Saturday  --  Soscrappy

I'm wishing you lots of creative time.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
