Central Park Cracker Box Quilt

I've been quilting my Central Park Cracker Box Quilt this week and think it's my favorite quilt so far!  I love the bright, cheerful colors in the line.  I decided to do some echo quilting in the empty spaces and outline the solid rectangles.  It's a lot of stop & go work, but it's turning out great!  I'm about 2/3 finished.  I pieced the back, and you'll get to see that later on.  I reallyreallyreally want to get this quilt finished by the end of the week because I'm moving next Friday!!  I can't believe how fast time flies (esp when you need to pack a bazillion boxes).

Oh wow, your Central Park is wonderful! I didn't even know about this fabric line. Guess I'm out of the loop. :P I can't wait to see how your quilt progresses!

I love the quilt but really love your quilting of it. I only do straight line but I've had trouble with my machine not cooperating for echo quilting like that. Beautiful!

The quilt piecing looks great, and I love the echo quilting. It makes the fabrics stand out nicely!
