Back from the long-arm quilter sooner than I expected. (And I must say that I am now spoiled by custom quilting; I may be hard pressed to go back to all-over designs, even though my checkbook doth protest.)
|Custom: each t-shirt's design carefully outlined|
|Binding by Linda. THANK YOU!!!|
I worked out the ideas for this quilt in September of 2012. Finished putting together all the blocks in a crazed dash in September 2013. Put the border on in January, then sent it off to the long-arm quilter. I usually say I have a 3-year timeframe for quilts, so I feel positively speedy with this one.
I had time to put the binding on during a mini-retreat at the end of May, and I was blessed by my friend Linda offering to do the hand-finishing for me. (I owe her. Big time.)
Just to reveal the age of some of my fabric: the binding print says "Millennium 2000" on it. (Gee, how old does that make it? And, let it be known that this is only one of two millennium-themed fabrics in my stash.)
Linking up with Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday, being hosted this week by Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts. Finishes don't happen often, so I gotta go celebrate!
