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!
