SAJOU TOP FINISHED

Lori at Humble Quilts is having a link party today for people who have participated in her QAL to make the Sajou mini quilt.  I didn't start until yesterday, so I haven't had time to layer and quilt it, but I do have the top finished.

I had set a few fabrics aside over the last week or so and yesterday I decided to at least do the first part of Sajou.  The center fabric was something that I picked up in the scrap chest at my LQS.  I decided to use a lot of black, grey, some pink and the lone green on the top right corner.


After picking a black border, I decided to use another favorite pick from the scrap chest - the pink print.  I just love that fabric!


Oh, why not finish the top while I'm at it!  I picked out another black border, some purple fabrics (maybe you can't see it, but there is some purple in the pink print) and some green in the corners.  And finished it right before supper.


OK!  it's interesting!!  Thanks, Lori!!  I will link this to your link party.

It's very pretty, though not a "normal" layout. But I like it! I like that it challenges the standard of quilt layouts. The colora are beautiful and I love the pop of green in the corners. Good for you for a (top) finish - I'm sure it will be quilted in no time!

A very pretty combination of colors.
I love that pink print, too.
Nice job, Ruth!

What fun fabrics you've found for your Sajou mini. I miss that little scrap chest at your LQS, I remember it well!

I like your color combos. The purple and green frame the center perfectly. Great job!

So Katie likes the green in the corners; I like the tiny little squares in the black striped border, and I love the triangle outer borders! The whole quilt is very pretty! Glad to see someone got a finish; wish I could say I have one. ---"Love"
