I joined the Finish Along at The Littlest Thistle for the second quarter in 2014 and my list of projected finishes is here. This is my second finish.
Pattern: Jigsaw Quilt by Pam and Nicky Lintott from "Two From One Jelly Roll Quilts"
Top fabric: : Bella Solid Sand and "Metropolitan Fair" by Barbara Brackman, both from Moda
Backing fabric: : "Prairie Rose" by Sue Daley Designs for Riley Blake Designs
The block is simple: one large and five small HSTs, made from 2.5" strips so each small HST measures 2 by 2"
In the photo below the block construction shows up more clearly. The large print triangles were cut from two strip-pieced jelly roll strips of the same colour; the solid triangles from a 4.5" strip. I cut all the triangles, large and small, using my Omnigrid 96 ruler from paired strips - one solid, one print - lying right sides together.

I got rather carried away and made one block too many! Now I have a themed label.
I stitched the information on the label by machine having reinforced the back of that piece with fusible Vlieseline H180. I stitched the label on after quilting and together with the binding, but I think next time I make such a large label I'll appliqué it before quilting. Such a large overall quilting design wouldn't make the label illegible; it would hold it in place better.

This is my second finish for the second quarter:
As far as the Finish Along goes, I'm behind schedule. It's time to move on to putting the borders onto Celtic Solstice and getting the quilting done.
