Hawaii Sunset Top Done

I just finished putting the pieced border on Hawaii Sunset.  TaDa!  I always want to skip the pieced border.  By the time the top is done I just want to get it finished and quilted.  But I am always glad that I completed the pieced borders. It is nicely pressed now and ready for finishing.  
 I have this nice grey and blue floral for the back.  I have picked up bits and pieces on sale but never had a good use for it.  Though it will take a bit of puzzling, I think there is plenty.
 These giant tumbler block were my leaders and enders.  I'm not sure where they are headed yet, but They are coming together nonetheless.
 The tumblers weren't out long before Lizzie came to check them out.  I think she approves.  I want to get Hawaii Sunset up and loaded on the frame so that I can work some more on Anna's T-shirt quilt.  She is pretty anxious for it to get finished up now that the missing fabric has arrived.

Your Hawaii Sunset quilt sparkles. Tumblers are a fun leader/ender project. I plan to make a second tumbler quilt.

The green diamonds in the Hawaiian sunset just pop among the colours and blue background. Repeating the green in the pieced border just adds that little zing and sit a truly beautiful quilt. Lizzie seems to love relaxing among the tumblers - a quilt for Lizzie perhaps?

Hawaii Sunset is definitely a quilt with a lot of "wow" factor. Hope you can get it up on the frame and finshed off before you head out for your summer adventure.
