Vice Versa Quilt Top - Complete!

I can't believe it!  I have a finished Vice Versa Quilt top!  Ten months, sixteen blocks, six Kona colors, and a few yards of Widescreen in grey and its done!  

Gen X Quilters Vice Versa BOM (block of the month) info can be found here - and its never too late to start!  And… AnneMarie just revealed she'll be heading up another BOM next year, named Moccasin, and an entire kit is available to purchase - so no anxiety on choosing fabrics! Seriously, you need to check it out!  A gorgeous quilt, to be sure!

And… a few more shots of this top: 

Measures 75" x 75"
I plan on quilting it at Sewtopia (Salt Lake City, UT!) as they'll have some HQ Sweet Sixteen mid-arm quilting machines available to use!  Not to mention a free batting station sponsored by Pellon, Bernina sewing machines threaded with AURIFIL 50wt thread, and even a discount on Moo cards that we get to pick up at the event.  Excited does not cover it, for me! So many extra goodies I never expected!

I've got to say, I'm really looking forward to it!  This little getaway will be my first time away from my sweet little 18mo old girls. A day hasn't gone by in the last year and a half where I wasn't known as "Mama!"   I think it will be good for my heart, mind, and soul to be reminded of who I am outside of motherhood.  And a nap. any. darn. time. I. want. 
Yes, please.  

But will I miss these little faces?  I am sure of it.

Thanks for stopping by!

You know I just absolutely love your colors Cristin. This quilt top is awesome! I can't wait to see how you quilt it when we're at Sewtopia. :) Looking forward to our trip babe!

Thanks so much for all the BOM shout outs too. See you soon!

I"m not normally a sampler type girl at all but your quilt could change that :)

Love your quilt! Great colors!
Looks like yours may be rectangular rather than square...if so, can you tell me how you managed? I have stalled assembling mine as I would rather it be rectangular but keep the same basic layout. Thanks!
