"Box Kites" - DONE

Today is a lovely warm day to celebrate the finish of my "Box Kites."  It ended up about 72" x 88" - I really didn't want it that large, but apparently I am not planning well enough.  This is a Bonnie Hunter inspiration, from one of her books. 

DH held it high, but almost not high enough.  We've had so much snow, mostly melted now, but the result is a lot of MUD!  I had to jump in and hold up the bottom to keep it off the ground.

I really LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the diagonal lines we see with all the  light "kites".  Each border is MQ'ed differently in light-hearted, happy motifs.

That is just so pretty! I guess I did not know about that Bonnie pattern...where have I been?!

Would you send me a close-up pic of your borders? I love to see new-to-me quilting ideas. I made up a new one on my latest machine finish, my granddaughter’s quilt.

A very happy finish. Good thing you kept it out of the mud, or this pretty thing would have become "dark & dirty".

Another lovely finish. You have a great color/combo sense and your quilts are so inviting!
