You Are My Sunshine

My Happy Quilting Quilt-a-Long quilt is finished.  I made it using Sweetwater's Sunkissed.  I have decided to call it "You Are My Sunshine."  I absolutely love this quilt!

Here are some close-ups of the blocks...

I also pieced the back.  I love doing pieced insets on the backs of quilts.  For one, it saves on backing fabric.  I was able to back this quilt using 2 yards of fabric rather than 4 yards.  The inset is made up of half-square triangles left over from piecing the top.

I have entered this quilt in our local guild show in a couple of weeks.  It has some issues, so I don't expect it to win any prizes, but I love this quilt and want to share it!
