Double Delight DONE!

Here it is in all it's glory. 80" x 92" too big for my kitchen floor. And way too big for my tiny design wall. There is no one here to hold it up for me except the kitties. And they are busy with the birds at the front window.
I went with the extra 9-patches on the side borders. I love how they turn the corner into a curve as the blocks do!

Corner from my bed. Can you see Baby checking it out. The quilt under the double Delight is the first quilt I ever made of any size. I did not know what I was doing. But it is the only quilt in the house that fits our bed. We like a lot of overhang. It was also the reason I started to buy fabric in larger hunks. I ran out three times while making that old cat quilt. It turned me into a fabricholic big time.
This is not an excuse...this is a fact.

Your DD quilt is beautiful! I'm working on mine. I'm still doing 9 patches. :D

I see you are working on Winter Wonderland too. I finished mine just last month.

So pretty - congrats! The blue pieces make it 'twinkle'! 8-)

I just posted my progress on my DD. Every person's version that I've seen has been so pretty!
