Last week I told you about the start of my emergency quilting.
The quilt took a bit longer than I wanted to get it finished, but life got in the way. This is the season of barbecues, graduation parties and fishing, so sometimes priorities get shifted.
I managed to finish the top and quilt Sherry's quilt on Sunday, but the binding wasn't finished until Tuesday night. The hottest day of the year (so far) and I'm under a quilt, sewing down binding. Of course.
But it's done. And it took an extra day to get a photo, but finally, here's the finished quilt! It's even got a label!
I decided not to do the outer border because I was pressed for time and I think the quilt turned out just fine without it.
I love the variety of hand-sizes, the variety of ways people signed their blocks and even the guy who signed his "upside-down" adds variety and personality.
It finished about 46x57, which is a nice lap-sized quilt.
The hubby will take it and drop it off tomorrow. But first I have to try to get all the extra cat hair removed that seems to be in super-excess around here. (I can't blame them, as hot as it's been, I'd be getting rid of anything extra I could to cool off too!)
Now I can get back to work on the Baltimore Album challenge block (started) and the monthly UFO (cut out). Maybe this weekend? I hope to have more photos soon.
