This quilt has been sitting around for some time. My husband told me he wanted a larger wall hanging quilt for his office so I started this in early spring of last year.
Then my sewing machine went on the fritz and had to be taken in and was AWOL for about three weeks. During that time I was able to piece on my other vintage machines but was unable to FMQ so I ended up with a stack of tops..... this one ended up at the bottom of the pile since I had no real deadline for completion.
I had the back pieced and ready, the pretty blue binding waiting, I just could not get it under my machine until this week when I got a sudden burst of energy while re-organizing my sewing space. I decided a couple of projects needed to either be completed or start paying me rent.
So now its done, headed to the office to brighten my husbands day!
I am linking to Sew & Tell Fridays. All week I was thinking about this forum and that I wanted to get this quilt done on Thursday so I could take pictures outside and have ready to post of Friday.... now click above and see what other people have been working hard on to share with you!
