He should look guilty, he was playing with an open pen on my new quilt!
The 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.
For the back I used a piece of fabric I had been
hoarding saving for years. It’s not water waves, as it appears, but rows of Queen Anne’s Lace in several greens, white and metalic gold. I finished it with the border fabric and another green. I was afraid of the signatures on the front fading, so I made a label for the back with all the names and locations.
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.
This quilt is 56″ x 82″, and should be great to wrap up in during cold evenings, or whenever I need a Twilty hug! Thank you, everyone, for your beautiful blocks!
I”m linking up to Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.

It came out so beautiful Valerie! And the best thing about it is it was made mostly by friends.
