First I want to thank all of you who emailed me and left comments regarding my last post. I tried to respond to all of you but in case I missed someone then .... THANK YOU !!! Your words of enouragement and advice were very helpful and appreciated. As corny as it sounds ... it did make a difference in my life.
My time at home has been extended another 2 weeks for now. My physical problems remain the same but my perspective and attitude have changed tremendously in the past week. Amazing !!
Now on to my finished quilt top:
That last stretch to the finish was an effort .... this is the first bed-size quilt I have done since returning to quilting and I love the end result ! The top was too big for me to handle for a full picture but when it comes back from the longarm lady I will get a full picture of it.
There was a huge mess all over the house when I was done! OMG! I was further blessed that my DH did not offer one complaint about. He even helped me clean it all up by vacuuming. What a sweetheart!
I was curious as to how many different fabrics I used. A scrap here, a fat quarter there and ended up with over 100. Here are the leftovers:
I still need to make a matching pillow sham, but am taking a break from these little 6 inch squares for now. I have an "Origins" layer cake to make into a D9P. I told you I was addicted to the pattern!! It is simple, easy and quick. Yeah !!!
