So Long, Farewell

I'm glad to say that the Hopscotch top is done.
 I love the palette.
Rather than deal with templates, I borrowed my friend's 60-degree ruler, and just measured and cut.
I think this is the first time I pieced triangle blocks, but they weren't hard.
I'm pretty pleased how it looks all stitched up.
And isn't there just something about a quilt top blowing in the breeze on a sunny day?
But now it's time to pack this baby up and check in with my long-armer. A simple pieced backing is made from Domestic Bliss by Moda; the binding, Kona Medium Gray to match the triangle points.
Come back soon, Hopscotch!

Linking up with Fabric Tuesday.

It's gorgeous and I love the grey. Did you sew strips and then cut? Just trying to figure out how the little grey diamond gets pieced ; /

Everything about the quilt is fabulous - the binding and backing will be the perfect final touch. Simply must give this pattern a try after seeing your top.
