Finally - A Finished QuiltMonday, October 11, 2010
Could it be? In the distance , yes that is really a finished quilt. It has been a long time since I have actually reached the finish line on a quilt.
A little bit closer and you can see it is the strings quilt I started well over a year ago. It was nice to have a break from it, as it was like catching up with an old friend again as I stitched the binding on. I remember those scraps of park slope with a few other treasures in there too. While I mourned cutting into every last piece I had, I'm not regretting it.
A close up of the stippling shows the hard work Viv has put into this. It started out as a swap for one of these for some quilting and became a bit of an epic when the back didn't behave. Viv really has done a wonderful job on this (I've asked and she's open to orders too).
Of course, it wouldn't be complete without a proud new owner too.
