Lantern Quilt

 
My Lantern Quilt is bigger than I originally planned but I'm pleased with the size because I can use it on my bed.  Don't look closely at the quilt because I haven't buried the threads yet, but I wanted to link up to Quilty Habit's Lantern - a - long Linky.  http://www.quiltyhabit.blogspot.com/2013/08/lantern-long-linky.html

The backing is polka dots that blend with the mix of colors from the top, and since I had made 2 extra Tinkerbell blocks I used them on the backing.

Thanks to Jessica of Quilty Habit for this fun design.  I said I wouldn't join any more qal's this year because I wanted to work on my ufo's but this was a fun and quick project.   And thanks to Sharon of Vroomans Quilts where I spotted the qal button.  Love that quilting community. 
 
God Bless You.

I love it Joanna. It's nice to do something simple at times and it has made up so quickly, that it is done and not a UFO.
