Another one bites the dust


So, last Sunday I decided to finish my Jamestown quilt. I showed the layout at that time and then all week just kind of sat and twiddled my thumbs because I ran out of fabric to do the 4 corner triangles. Well....yesterday while I was home the fabric came, I washed and ironed it and today I got it all done.... I LOVE how this top came out.....I thought it would be kinda small but upon measurement just now I find it finished up to 86 x 92!!! I do have someone in mind already for it so I best get the backing done and quilted.......

I am going to do myself a favor tonight before I put it off and then never do it....I'm going to cut the binding and have it all ready for when it's done being quilted.....

Peggy, This is beautiful. I enlarged the photo and was immediately impressed with how complex and intricate this must have been to assemble. If you could do this, you can master the "All Roads Lead to the Sea" quilt. Of course, it must wait until after all holiday projects are wrapped up. :)

Ooops, my comment above says from "b" -- sorry, this blogger thing is new to me. I'll learn, but for now just want to say I'm "Barb". I should have signed my name.
