One More Greek Key Finish.... and!! Finished ( or not) Friday!!!!

 I fell so in love with my last Greek Key, that I just had to start another one...

and now that one is Completely Finished.  Yay !!!

On this one, I fell back to my favorite color - Plaid... and

then I found a border print of EAGLES!!!

I had enough of the Eagle Print that I could do the border so all the Eagles are upright and flying the right way.  I personally think it looks pretty cool 

Each block is a different plaid
Because - a girl can never have too many plaids!

A side look at the quilting - I used a Star panto - 
Confetti Fire works on the back

My cell phone got really old - I have a tendency to not upgrade those things - but apparently the one I had was going to no longer work soon, and they had a huge sale - so I got a new phone .

I wanted to test the Camera Quality on it - and you know what?  it is NOT bad!!!!

I am no good at calling people, horrible at texting people back - but ... I think I will probably remember where this phone is more often cuz I LOVE the camera!!!

I hope you had  great First week of 2022

Your Plaid quilt is wonderful! Pretty star quilting design too. Fun to have a new phone/camera ;))

Cathy said...

From a distance the fabrics don't read plaid so glad you showed them up close and personal. The Greek Keys are wonderful but then when you show they are plaids - wonderful x 2!

Kate said...

What a fun finish! Those eagles really make the quilt and the plaids are such fun. Are you going to give this one away as a QOV? I'm not sure I could. The phone camera's are so much better than they used to be. All the SITs photos from our photo challenge are taken with her phone.

This quilt is beautiful, great job! Happy stitching!

Kat Scribner said...

That's a really cool quilt, Alycia. I've never made that block. They look great in multiples. Have a great weekend !

The Colorful Fabriholic said...

Congrats on your Greek Key finish! I never would have thought of plaid for a Greek Key design but it totally works and the quilt came out great. I especially like how you took care to make all the eagles right side up in the border. Way to go!

Another beautiful finish, Alycia. I enjoy the close ups to see the prints and the quilting. Happy Stitching in the New Year.

Great eagle fabric border and fabulous finish.

Linda Swanekamp said...

Pretty sharp looking quilt- colors, contrasts, border- all winners.

Yvonne from Quilting Jetgirl said...

What a great way to start the year. Being able to keep the eagles all upright in the border is such a beautiful touch!

Cynthia Brunz Designs said...

Great finish Alycia!

Snowcatcher said...

Gosh, this is gorgeous! Love the border print, too! Perfect! And I'm glad I'm not the only one who uses a phone primarily as something other than a phone!!! :)

Congratulations on your finish. It looks fabulous and I agree- a girl can never have too many plaids. Happy quilting.

Loretta R. Webre said...

Alycia, this quilt is beautiful. Is there a pattern for this?

Bonnie said...

I'm not much for using the phone to call anyone but I'm a big user of text and the camera. In fact I don't have any other camera. I really like your new greek key quilt. Laughed as I read all plaids when the next pic or two was a blue and white floral! I must admit I think your plaids look great in the block.

Linda said...

It's so beautiful! I love the plaid - it translates as solid from a distance. Perfect border and backing!

Vicki W said...

The Greek key block is so nice and the Eagle border fabric is really special!
