Sugar Bowl Quilt.. my rendition.. Friday Finishes..

I love Gwen Morston's quilts, this is from her book and its called Sugar Bowl. Mine is a little wonky but I love it. It was a little difficult for my novice skills but lucky for me I don't know any quilt police.  I added a wider border than the one in the book because I like it to be a little bigger. I just finished the top and have not got to the batting or backing yet. I started it this afternoon and finished about 4:30. It went faster than I thought it would. There are 21 quilts in the book, I am going to try and make them all. Where I will put them the good Lord only knows but I think it will be great piecing practice.

Here is a little closer view, like I said "it ain't perfect" but its mine and I guess I have to look at it. At least the hubbs didn't think it was a hot pad this time! lol

This is the one from the book, I am not a pink gal but I soooooo thought it was pretty and I love the name of this quilt.
Here is the book, just love this book!
 Blessings Yall! Gwen
