Quilt Top Completed
I know I am way ahead of my August goal, but I just can't leave this project unfinished. Dan probably thinks I am crazy too. I have been staying up till the wee hours of the morning working on it when I should be sleeping.
Yesterday I finished my quilt top while the two older kids were at school. Emma stayed busy exploring Ethan's bedroom and later came in the craft room and kept occupied with some knick knacks she found on the bottom shelf of the changing table I have in there. I had to make some adjustments to the layout of the quilt due to some miscalculations I made to block sizes or directions. I really don't know what happen but in the end it turned out just fine.
I am excited to get the backing piece put together and then have it quilted. One of Dan's co-workers has a machine quilter so I am hoping to see if I can have her do it for me. I just love the look of the free-motion quilting you can get with that. I would do it myself on my sewing machine but I don't have a free motion sewing foot for my machine and don' t know if I would be able to find one anyway. My machine is pretty old.
But here's a full view of the quilt top. . .
