It was a tremendous amount of work, but I am glad I did make it. I did it by "block of the month". I really did finish one block each month. It is the only way to actually finish something of this intensity. I think there ought to be a medal just for completing!
It is all hand appliqued' and hand quilted. I hope it will be passed down in my family! For now it is at the Barstable County Fair, behing exhibited this week. Do they have a category for perseverance? i think I would win!
I have some gorgeous batiks waiting to be sewn into a table runner. I also have the altenate pieced Christmas blocks that I did along with the above quilt....waiting....... It is a busy time of year, and the summer is way too short. So...I will grab a few sewing hours soon....stay tuned, and enjoy the HEAT!
