It’s always a bit bittersweet when I finish a top I’ve been working on for a long time. Remember, this is the one I had all put together except for the borders when I started the purple/gold version for my friend! Do you ever feel sentimental about finishing a quilt top? Maybe it’s because I know I have to clean the sewing room a bit before I can go on to another project but sometimes I find myself dragging out those last few stitches.
I really love this quilt and it’s hard to believe I’ve made two of them, back to back, and won’t be keeping either of them. Chad had asked for this one one day when he saw it on the blog on the design wall post so this one will go to him.
And just to prove to you how totally color coordinated I am around here, look at the pencil I was using!
Exact same shade of purple and black! Seriously, it just happened to be the pencil I picked up but it was funny to see how well it matched the quilt.
That’s the end of the sewing for today . . out to the garden to see what needs my attention. I’m praying the squash need picking again! I picked two grocery sacks full this morning! Can you guess that grasshoppers don’t like squash?
