Laughing Out Loud Top

I finished sewing the top for my Laughing Out Loud quilt on Sunday. Here it is, draped across the fence in my yard. (The "points" on that bottom edge will be trimmed away.) I will be adding thin borders all around.

It's funny, but looking at this now, it doesn't seem LOUD. It seems more "user friendly" and a lot less "in your face" than I thought it would be. I am very pleased with it so far.


Only after I sewed the two halves of the quilt together did I realize that I had forgotten to add the little sashing square at the end of one of the rows. Oops!

It's fantastic. And honestly, since I'm more of a muted colors kind of quilter, I thought it would be TOO much. But you're right, now that it's done it's just happy and wonderful. Great job!

Lynne, I have loved watching you make this lol quilt. It is funny how the black and white sashing disapears. Oh I really really like this quilt.

Oopps! So what you missed a bit. We would not have noticed. It's lovely. I think it's lively and fun. Well done.

Absolutely fabulous!! The riot of color contrasted with the black and white fabrics is P-E-R-F-E-C-T!

wonderful. sometimes it does take a step back from the (nearly) finished product to bring a true admiration. i like the way some of the blocks boldly jump out at you and others seem to hide or blend into the sashing.

It's beautiful! No, not "in your face", but bright and happy. I love the black & white sashing. I think Freddy and Gwen would like your interpretation of this one.

Fantastic! Remember what the Amish do... no such thing as a perfect quilt.

I love it! All of the black and white is so much better as a neutral sashing than anything else you could have used.
