Tassels - Complete

Tassels - Complete by capitolaquilter

Tassels - Complete, a photo by capitolaquilter on Flickr.
Well here it is - so exciting to share this quilt. Thanks to an amazing - and wonderfully exhausting day with friends I have a photo shoot to share. This time it wasn't the beach/redwoods tourist trek like with the QuiltCon charity quilt with Anne but rather the picturesque meadows with Sue.

Tassels has been a long time coming since the tutorial and deserved a proper introduction to the world. The gorgeous blue sky and open fields of Corralitos was the perfect setting.
I could not have asked for a warmer day for galavanting around .....
mid-70's mid-February, that's my kind of weather
Thank you Friends+Fabric=A Modern Stash Bee from April 2012 for all of the great blocks.
Linking up to Finish it Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts and TGIFF at Sewing by Moonlight.

Officially off the list! The completion is especially sweet because this poor quilt rolled from one quarter of Finish-Along to the next and then into January AND February of A Lovely Year of Finishes
