A Friday Finish



I actually had this quilt finished earlier this week but have had no time to post. It has been a very busy but very good week! So in celebration of a good week and an even better weekend to come, here it is! Tuscan Leaves. If you are in Austin, Texas the weekend of September 17, 18 and 19, you can see this quilt in person. It will be hanging in the Austin Area Quilt Guild Show. It will be a great show!




And of course, I pieced the back! How could I not? I LOVE a pieced back! It just makes my skirt fly up!!!
Have a great weekend and happy quilting!
