I am so excited that I finally finished this quilt, a little early, a little late, whatever! I made a pledge okay?
If you’ll recall, I had started piecing this last December in a frenzy and all I have to do is set a date to have everything else I can’t control, wreck my timetable.
Nevertheless, I was able to put it together before 2014 but not before last Christmas. Being that I always over-think how I lay out quilt blocks, my daughter (11) was helping me out with that, rearranging repeating patterns and colors. Because I was working with a jelly roll and charms pack, I had to “re-design” some of the blocks like those below.
I added a little Rick Rack detail on this one.
And made a box design here.
The backing is flowers, perfect for Spring if I wanted to flip it over!
I did all the quilting after the New Year (except for one block) and bound it just this week. I feel so accomplised because not only is this the largest quilt I have made to date, but it was completely hassle free!
Yep! This one is a keeper!
