Finish Five,part A
This quilt top is the main reason I joined the Finish a Long. It had been languishing way too long. It is my daughter's wedding quilt and child number three is here. :( I learned a valuable lesson on procrastinating. I can't even find the book that has the original wall hanging directions. I just made it bigger and got overly clever with all the colours and 'flowers'! The wedding saw all but the last row and a half done. Then she sat. and sat and SAT! enough. But even with the April deadline I dragged my feet and that has put the other ufo's behind. BUT...
She is done and I will be putting her on the second quarter list for machine quilting and the final part B. The binding is worrying me. Why did I let DD talk me into all those curves???
The north rooms are also in part A mode. I am slowly putting things back. I need to think about some kind of curtain for the sliding doors. on the other hand... Privacy isn't an issue so I'll make haste slowly. lol I am also deciding about darkening the table under the mirror and the round dining room table. Then there are colour decisions for the hutch and bookcase.
I hope to roll through some starched strips through the binder later today for the next twoquilts. Is that a finish line just ahead???
