Better late than never
Ok, I am a serious procrastinator. Very, very bad procrastinator. But, I do usually get things done. It just may take a while. This quilt, for instance...
This quilt is in the Drunkard's Path variation, called Love Knots. It was one of the first curved piecing I ever did. I did this in maybe 1995 or so. It moved with us from New Mexico to Florida, almost 13 years ago!
I just did an all over loop and meander, nothing really fancy, but this thing was almost too big for my frame! And I was planning to hand quilt this when I made it! I loved looking at all the different fabrics, and I used muslin for the plain pieces. It's amazing how my tastes have changed in 17 years of quilting. Wow.
I love the back too. I made the back up of 10" squares, for a reversible quilt. I have decided to shop my stash. That's very hard for me. But, it's also become fun. A challenge so to speak. So, the "Better Late Than Never" quilt is done! (Now onto the numerous others waiting in the wings...)
