Bella Skill Builder Quilt Top!!!

Today is a pretty fun day, because after 9 months of working on blocks for the  Bella Skill Builder we are not putting them all together!!!!   That means a finished quilt top, eeekk!!!   And I didn't do the same finished layout as hosts,  Fat Quarter Shop and Sherri McConnell but I am still so loving it!!!!  I just wanted to really play up the color graduation in those blocks and I think it turned out so fun ;)

This has been such a fun quilt along and has really pushed me to try some new skills, and I am so super happy about that.  And I had so much fun playing with all of the different Bella Solids to create the fun tone on tone effect in each block.  I just love it!!!  And  now all that is left is to quilt it up.  I have a few ideas but I haven't for sure decided, but I do know it will be using lots of pretty colored threads!!!!   My goal is to share the finish for next month, ya know, build a block each month, only seems right to quilt it and share it next month :)  

And that is my Bella Skill Builder quilt top!!!!  If you are following the original layout, you can find the  free pattern for putting the quilt top together right here.  And also pop on over to the  Fat Quarter Shop's blog, Jolly Jabber  for lots more Bella Skill Builder Quilt Top fun from lots more blogger friends ;)     I am so excited to finish this up this month.  Time to get quilting ;)  

Have a Happy Quilting Day!!!

  3. Gorgeous Melissa!! Love how you changed up the quilt layout, and showed what all can be done to make it our own. Beautiful fabric colors in each of your blocks!
