A finish of sorts...


We had our Thanksgiving meal on Wednesday for convenience...so Thursday I picked this quilt back up and continued on with the binding.  I laid it in the chair while I went and did something else, and came back to find that Bubbie had dragged it to the floor for something to lay on.

I wrestled it from him and finished it while we watched the Saints Game...


My daughter took it home the next day.  She chose the fabrics and I made the top.  And then she paid to have it quilted.  It has sure been a long road from start to finish.  I cannot even think how many years have passed...



Here shows the top when it was finished in Feb of 2016.  Keep in mind that it took me a while to make the top.  Every where we went, we looked for batik fabrics.   I would guess at what she would like, knowing that if she didn't like them I would be happy to have them in my collection.

Great that the beautiful quilt is finished at last!! Good work.
How funny that Bubbie was able to pull it down so he could lounge on it.

Beautiful! I love the pattern and colors. I sure does feel good to finally finish those quilts no matter how long it takes.

Rose, it is beautiful! You do such amazing work and the batiks are so pretty! I sure understand it taking a long time. It takes me forever to complete a big quilt. I love the picture of Bubbie on it. Cats really do appreciate quilts!

The quilt is beautiful. You know I'm new to this process and am finishing Nic's kid size quilt. I'm pretty sure I'd never be able to quilt a queen size unless I get a different machine with a longer neck. I admit that I am learning from this process Our Thanksgiving was quiet. The first one ever that we didn't spend with family...just ourselves . . and the dogs.
xx, Carol

YAY!!!! It's done! It is so beautiful Rose---I know your daughter loves it. I have a quilt top my Mother made and I do need to get it quilted. Maybe I will do what your daughter did---never thought of that.
Now that Thanksgiving is over I suppose we have to start with "Merry Christmas'.
