Second Wind - a Wicked Late Kaleidoscope Finish

I've been way behind on the Kaleidoscope Quilt Along with Don't Call Me Betsy... started late, fell off the bandwagon, delayed, delayed...
then Candi at Raccoon Creek Quilts posted her UFO challenge and got my bum in gear!

I busted most of this out last week. It's called Second Wind because a series of late night second winds got it done. Remember my rule of 2? 2 A.M. and a 2 liter of mountain dew? Totally happened here.

Without further ado...

Second Wind!






And, to match my grandmother's Ogee quilt and tie them together a bit, I've placed a small bird in the bottom corner of the backing:




Fabric is Lola's Posies by Riley Blake Designs, with a bit of Kona Caribbean on the front, Azure on the back, and Free to Grow (Mod Green Pod) as the binding. Interesting fact? I won Lola's Posies and Free to Grow. The only thing I bought for this quilt were the solids!

Ooh, I love that blue background color, and the little bird. I've been seeing so many of these finished quilts around that now I really want to make one too, even though that quilt along is long done!
