I wrote about receiving this bundle of "Miss Kate" and the backing yardage back about 2 weeks ago. This was an unexpected gift and I couldn't wait to cut into it. I threw all the fabric in the wash immediately and started planning where to go with it. I KNEW I'd use a Schnibbles pattern...that was a given since Carrie Nelson herself had gifted me the fabric. I went with "Lincoln" and all I changed up was adding 1 extra row to make it a little longer. Anyone that knows me knows I'm not a fan of square quilts :) By the time the weekend was over I had all the star blocks made. Over the next week I made all the rail fence units and got the center of the quilt finished.
And then it sat............ Moving day came and went, baby shower day came and went, then I had to clean....seriously, I need a cleaning lady :)
BUT, yesterday I decided it was time to get it off the design wall and ready for the quilting.
I cut all the piano key borders and attached them to the white skinny borders.....
And, voile by 8:00 last night I had the quilt finished and the backing made.
I'll be taking this beauty out to post office today for it's trip to NY.
I'll post a better picture when it comes back from the quilter and when the sun comes out...if it ever comes back out.
