It's About Time . . .

Ummm, last spring I think it was, Old Red Barn did a quilt-a-long. I joined in, but it has taken until this week to finish. Hmmm.



Sometimes, when I take a while {forever} to finish a quilt, I lose interest in all of it and ends up not being my favorite. Thankfully, even with the time passing, I still really like this one. The fabrics are fabulous and I believe it is my largest quilt to date and get this-- no puckers on the back! Wow. I am quite proud of myself. ;o)


(Do you like our new tax refund couch? We haven't had a couch for over a year- so glad we have something to sit on!)



Did any of you participate in the quilt-a-long? I would love to see your quilts!

Ohh that's gorgeous!!! I love all the colors. It looks nice on your new couch! I participated too, and umm... Mine is still just a top! I did buy batting and backing fabric recently, but then I got home and thought of something else the backing would be perfect for, so... still just a top! lol

I'm like Leigh, I have the top done, but it's not quilted yet. Here's mine.

I already have the batting and backing, I guess I just need to get it done!

P.S. Thanks for the confession, it's nice to know others out there haven't finished the quilt along yet. LOL

I did one, and for a procrastinator extraordinaire like myself, I'm proud to say that I actually finished it late last summer! Here's the link:

Love the back of this quilt as much as the front!

Congratulations on the finish. Fabulous, fabulous quilt!

I really, really like that a lot!
I think that might be part of the reason I never have UFOs.
1) I can't stand to have stuff laying around that's been started and needs finished. I finish stuff as soon as possible.
2) I might do that because I'm afraid if I let it sit, I won't have any interest in it by the time it's done!
I really like those fabrics!
