Converging Corners - A Finished Quilt!

Oh you guys... this is one of those quilts that I've had on my mind for well over a year.  Ever since I saw my fellow guild member Cherri's version of this quilt, I wanted to make one!  I love the inspiration I get from my friends, don't you?

The quilt block I used is called Converging Corners, a tutorial done by Ashley at Film In the Fridge.  This is a good block to use up scraps!  I had so much fun making this quilt. I started off with the Lush fabric line by Moda.  It has birds and deer on it, with a paint by number look.  I loved all of the colors in it, and those fabrics are my center squares on each block.
This is my first "rainbow" quilt I've made.  I decided to add purple to this quilt last minute, and I'm glad I did.  Purple isn't my favorite color... but this one needed every color!
This is the first block I made.
Then it slowly grew....
and grew!!
I decided to free motion quilt a large flower in each 14" quilt block.  It looks really cool.
I used this beautiful Anna Maria Horner print on the back, it looks so gorgeous.  I am now on the hunt for my next big project!  This was a fun and creative one for me, loved every minute of it!

Wonderful quilt! Those colors are awesome. I also used that AMH print on the back of a quilt. It needs to be used whole, don't you think?
