I finally finished my Texas Braid quilt. I am so happy to have this one checked off the list of UFOs.
I think this has been one of the longer running UFOs that I’ve had.
It got stalled out as I was too chicken to do the feathers in needed in the quilting. Then once I finally started, I wasn’t very good at keeping at it….as I always tell Carver, “It happens”.
The quilt is from Bonnie Hunter’s book Scraps and Shirttails. I’ve wanted to make the quilt for FOREVER (well at least since I bought the book).
One thing I’d like to point out is this…My reds are not all the same shade. I had about five different reds and wanted to use them up. I did…they are all slightly different shades.
The quilt is big but not as big as the pattern suggests. The pattern makes a king sized. Mine is 98″ or so across.
Here is a closer picture of the quilting. It’s far from perfect. It’s acceptable and I’m okay with acceptable. What’s the saying done is better than perfect?
Carver was here when I was taking pictures. The second I laid it out, he was all over it.
Then Gannon came and then…..
It was a wrestling match. Those boys….
Note: Carver dressed himself.
…and there has to be a Rosie picture. I couldn’t decided if I liked this one…
or this one better…
What do you think?
Do you have a quilt that languishing…why not pull it out and finish it up? I sure feel better that this one is done.
