Spring Bouquet. Or, how I spent this month.

Spring Boquet

I have finally managed to finish this quilt. A month after it went on the frame, it is once again off. I’m not going to lie, it feels soooo good to be done this one. Of course, I managed to run out of thread 10 minutes from being done at 11:00 last night, but luckly I work at the thread store and so could just run and get some more. I was not going to bed until that quilt was finished.

This quilt was made by the staff of Quilting From The Heart. I’m really not sure why I took me so long, besides a really bad case of procrastination. The quilting was intense, but really went quite well and wasn’t overly frustrating, I just could get myself going. Until yesterday, when I went like  a crazy person, and finally got it finished.

Mostly I’ve been thinking about things that have happened in my life since I started working on this quilt….

Anyways, I’m very excited to be able to start something new today. This is what I have on my design wall right now, but I’m thinking I’m going to play on my longarm today. Or maybe not. Who knows.

Later days,

  1. Wow, that is intense quilting. Congrats on the finish.

    Love the Spring Bouquet design. I chickened out on doing one and just did a single block as a wall hanging.
