Oops, a little wind gust...
Much Better... Gramercy & Friends Finished Top
I really, really like this one. Maybe because it's so tailored, not at all frou-frou. This one's on the waiting list of a local long arm quilter, Jane, who does amazing work with her computerized system.
This top actually has 25 different fabrics in it, and used a total of 8-1/2 yards. Seven of the fabrics are from the Gramercy line by Art Gallery Fabrics, and the rest - the friends - are coordinates from stash and various other lines. This project was inspired by the FQ bundle of Gramercy I won at STLMQG's Sew Me St. Louis event last October. Thanks, STLMQG!
A reader commented on the irony of a blog named The Colorful Fabriholic featuring such a neutral quilt. This quilt was actually an exercise in working with value. It's all about the placement of light, medium, and dark. OK, so I've taken a break from brights with these low-chroma neutrals, but now I'm ready for some color again!
In other quilty news, Zenia over at A Quilted Passion, has finished her version of my Broken Chevron pattern, which she named "Walk Like an Egyptian." Thanks, Zenia, for pattern testing for me.

These finishes are whoop-worthy so I'm linking up with Whoop Whoop Friday at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
PS - Also whoop-worthy: I get to go visit new grandbaby CJ and my son tomorrow. Whoo Hoo!
