Two years in the making!

I started this quilt top over two years ago. I kind of set it aside and didn't work on it for months at a time, but decided it was time to get back to work! We had a snowy, unexpected four day weekend (no school due to the weather Thursday or Friday), so I took advantage! I finished hand-appliqueing the last couple of blocks, and then got them all sewn together, along with the border. Now it's ready to layer with backing and batting and get to hand-quilting! I haven't made a quilt since I made a log cabin quilt for my Mom and Dad when they retired in 2002, so it was about time I get busy! This will be for our bed, and I am excited to get it done! I got the design from this book:

I love her designs, and think I'll have to choose another one to make! I picked my book up at a craft show, but I see it is also available on Amazon.

Hope you had a great, relaxing weekend too!

Your quilt is Beautiful! Can't wait to see it all finished!
The quilt you made for dad's retirement is so special to us, and so beautiful, a family heirloom for sure! We had never had a quilt for our bed before! It is so warm, and has been especially cozy to sleep under with our winter weather in the teens and -14ยบ.
Thank you again and again....
Love You,
Mom and Dad
