My Citrus Quilt top is done!

Finally,  after much procrastinating my Citrus Quilt top is done!  I really, really love how it turned out.  The bright colors really pop against the white.  My favorite part is the scrappy border.   It measures about 64 inches wide and 75 inches long. The hubs is happy about it too because he can finally stretch out under a quilt without his toes peeking out at the bottom.

This is by far the biggest quilt I've made and I can't wait to quilt it.  I've started piecing the back using some of the scraps leftover from making the top and some other fabrics from my stash.

I'm linking this up over at Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it Up Friday.  Have you finished anything this week?  It doesn't have to be a sewing project.  Have you been bit by the Spring cleaning bug?  If you have tell it to come bite me b/c I need some encouragement!   Have a great weekend!
