Thank-you, Snowstorm, for making me stay at home today. I am finished the quilt. Finished. Fin. Finito. Wow, this one has been a long time in the works. I think at least five years. Not because it was hard, but because I get bored easily; and I learned how to crochet; and I got a paid job; then I left paid job. It's just one of those things - I know I'm not alone out there.
I said in my last post that I was getting tired of this and did not like it anymore. Well, I changed my mind. I love it. The colours have been a real treat to work with these past few days when I look outside and know that Spring is a long, long way off yet. Throughout all the quilting I imagined this in our someday lake cottage. Lots of good energy went into this for sure.
It is almost the right size for a twin sized bed; a single would be just perfect. I photographed it on a double bed just to be able to see everything. The backing is a pretty pink I bought a whole year or more after I bought the other fabric. I think I was very lucky to find such a good match.
I was originally going to make binding out of the pink floral; but when I finished quilting the top everything was so flat I could just fold the backing fabric over and sew it to the front. Easy, peasy.
Someone else likes it too; or perhaps she's just trying to get my attention because I have been devoting my time to this and not her.
Here are all of my quilts together. Stacked so neatly I feel more proud of my efforts than ready to point out all their flaws. I thought this would be my last bigger quilt, but I have a feeling there are more to come. Just not too soon:)
