This quilt top has waited a LONG time to become a quilt.
The six inch squares of vintage fabrics were ALL TOGETHER.
The batting was cut to size.
They were folded nicely together.
a very. long. time.
I'm calling this a FRIDAY finish...
Even though the binding needs to be hand sewn on the backside.
Don't you love that gingham with the flowers??
I love the pieced backing.
(did not love piecing it.)
When you begin making a big quilt
(this one is 88"x88")
you go into it with a LIGHT HEART.
You don't think about the future
You enjoy the moment!!!
It is NOT lighthearted when piecing the BIG backing....
sandwiching the BIG quilt
quilting the BIG quilt!!!
It's done now.
I can stop complaining.
I think I'm spoiled.
I've been making too...too many baby quilts!
