At last!!  My color challenge quilt top is finished and I love it!!  I would never have chosen these colors to mix together but now that it's complete - it really makes me smile! 

Thank you Victoria for another great challenge that pushed us out of our comfort zone.

Very beautiful! Do the four center blocks have a different background fabric than the other blocks?

What a beauty! I love the anvil blocks in the middle set off with the tiny triangle squares. This is a wonderful setting and it gets me thinking maybe I have enough cheddar background left to do a pieced border for mine.

WOW - not only did you complete this top in RECORD time, but it's a beauty too! Love that sawtooth border, carries out the multicolor/scrap theme. Love it!

I like the way you have put the blocks together and the little triangles to complement the blocks.
