I'm Done! Almost. . .
Last night I finished my quilt! Well I finished the quilt top. Now I have to move on to batting, backing ,and binding. That will be a process too-I'm sure. I still haven't decided how to back it yet.
For the most part it all worked out really well. It was my own special style of quilting. As I worked along (and made mistakes) I kept thinking, "I bet a real quilter would go back and fix that." But what can I say. I'm a casual quilter, so I made a casual quilt top.
I used every single piece of the fabric (24 fat quarters) and kept my informal pattern going up until the very end when I had to make a concession to finish it up. But I think it looks fine, and I am sewing together the final bits of scraps to make an accent strip through the backing--I really hope there's enough for it.
