King Size Paint Box Quilt Blocks Finished!

It was so gratifying to finally finish all of these 64 blocks.  There are 4 blocks in each set (2 positive, 2 negative), with 16 color sets (light and dark).

The block design is a slightly modified Paint Box block from Elizabeth Hartman. Soon I’ll need to decide on the sashing and borders.

New Quilt Completed!

I made this quilt for my niece, who just graduated from college.  I like the back almost as much as the front. Put it in the mail to her today.  Hope she likes it!
