Grey Squares Bed Quilt: Finished!

Image

 

I finished the top for this quilt in early December, and dropped it off at the quilters and got it back in early March.  Booo.  But I couldn’t face quilting something this large on my little machine.  But I can’t face waiting that long for a quilt to get back to me again.  Conundrum.

Anyway, the quilt is 8″ grey squares surrounded by 3″ borders of the most gorgeous Amy Butler “Spots” fabric, with some Anna Maria Horner and Amy Butler floral prints thrown in for good measure.  The grey squares are too match my grown up grey curtains.  And now my bedroom / sewing room be done being decorated.  Woot.  I’ll take some pictures as soon as I can clean things up a bit.  And you will see lots and lots of pictures of the quilt on this blog as it will be the background for lots of my sewing projects.

I finished the Allison Glass feathers top on Friday as part of the #feathersqal (took the day off to finish in time for the cutoff – not obsessive at all.  🙂 )

I love it, but am afraid to quilt it – not as big as my bed quilt, but not small either.

So I have a day off today also – going to work on teeny tiny blocks like the one above and avoid, delay, etc.

Or maybe I will just take a nap.  🙂
