I finished the top of the mini-me Bars of Gold quilt. It is exactly the same as the larger one, though unlike the larger one I can fit the whole quilt in my camera's viewfinder without standing in Alaska! I actually think I like the smaller one more than I like the larger one but I won't be certain until I finish both.
I'm really happy with the way both quilts came out and I've certainly learned a lot. I need to figure out what I want to do for the backs of both quilts. In the meantime I think I'm going to take a break from quilting and work on something else.
