"OZ" Did It!!

After years and years of collecting and saving and finding the fabric...

"Oz" did it!

The Wizard of Oz Quilt that I made for my sister has been gifted!
Yes, she did love it, which makes me very happy.

I should explain, I tried to follow the sequence of the movie by starting with sepia, the I made a rainbow to signify arriving in Oz, then back to sepia when she arrived home.
On with the show!

Finale lay out. ready to sandwich and quilt.


DONE!!!!


Now for a hundred pictures!!

I DO need to mention, boy was I in a hurry to get the photographed and wrapped. 
These pictures are just plain bad!!
So sorry....

First time putting a block on the back but I just did not want to leave this picture off the quilt.















WHEW!!!

Do you feel like watching the movie now, LOL! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.

  3. I've been waiting to see the finished product! Love the blue you added for the background. Now I'll have to drag out my yardage and do something with it. My son has been the tin man twice and the lion once in a local annual production. Love it!

  5. Brilliant, Jane. What a wonderful way to showcase Oz. I'm betting your sis was "over the rainbow" with happiness to receive it.

    Happy New Year!
