Almost Done!



I just threw it down at the foot of my bed to get a quick picture. I need to square it and then I'm going to add a 4" border out of that bird sashing fabric. At least I think I am. I'm going to put it on my bed tomorrow and see how it drapes.

This quilt was so labor intensive, a lot more so than it looks. I'm ready for a really easy project now!!

But at least I met my weekend goal!

You should be proud you stuck with this quilt until you got it done! The border would look super on there if you choose that. I saw this quilt made up and it was really pretty. I hop around from project to project. Someday I'll stick with one until it's done and see what that feels like. :)

Looks great. You have done a supper job. I am like you I hate project that are harder than they look. I am working on one now. Take a look at my blog and see you will see the Midwest Modern quilt. Maybe it harder because I could not cut right. Anyways, love your quilt. you've done a great job.

It looks really wonderful, Vicky. I don't know how it could be more labor intense than it looks, because it already looks daunting! But totally worth it, to look at the nearly finished top!
