I have a quilt finish. I’m happy this one is done and in the books. Initially I was excited about this. It was suppose to be a wedding present…with my foot surgery I lost steam. This all started when I saw a great quilt that Mary at Country Threads made.

Well I wanted to make the quilt bigger of course…..you know me. I can never settle with a small quilt. So…here it is. I apologize for my photos. I’d been waiting for a brighter day but one hasn’t happened yet. I’m tired of waiting so…these are the best photos I can do.
The quilt is big too so there isn’t a place to take them nicely either….gotta love Iowa winter.
Mary had originally straight line quilted her’s but I chickened out. I felt the straight sharp lines needed to be softened. What do you think?
I don’t think it was a wrong move…the straight line wouldn’t have been wrong either. Sometimes there isn’t a wrong choice…just two choices.
I’m glad to have this one finished. Now I need to send it out.
It’s a late wedding present. I couldn’t finish it with my foot. Then I didn’t have a back and then…and then…and then. You know how it goes….
This quilt was awesome for me. It helped me clean out my solids. I used all sorts of shades and colors. Nothing had to really match. I also cleaned out lots from my bright 2 1/2″ bucket. The quilt was definitely a great stash buster.
Today I’m hooking up with Crazy Mom Quilts.
