I have been working on this quilt for what seems like years, though it has only been about 9 months.
However, I have been saving fabirc pieces for nearly a decade for the "someday" quilt. Well folks, someday has arrived. This post is actually a few months overdue, the finished quilt has been on our bed for more than a month. I am a bit behind what with thefood preservation, garden cleanup, MAT's tonsillectomy, DOT's learning to walk, tattoo coloring, and other general life things.
Anyway. This quilt has been slow going and a whole lot of fun.
Then I laid my batting ( the poly blankets)
THEN I locked the cat in the basement, and RELAID the poly batting and then laid the quilt top over that and secured it with tape.
On to the pinning! PIN ALL THE THINGS!
So once again Watermelon was whisked away to her room and I folded it up, and stored it in a bin in my workroom, for 4 months. Yes, thats right. Then 2 months ago I got the itch, about the time I did the receiving blanket quilts, I decided to hand tie this quilt too. I will most likely go back and hand quilt it since I now have a quilt frame, Thanks MOM!
So, its been a while from start to...mostly finished, but it is done-ish, and I love it. So does Watermelon.
