It is Finished

I actually finished this last week, just haven’t posted about it yet.

In case you missed it, you can see close-ups of the blocks here, here, and here.

I just love the gray with pink flowers. It was on sale for half price a few weeks ago, so I bought a whole bunch of it. (You might recognize it from my purse.) I think it was just perfect for the lattice between the blocks. I also used it for the quilt’s binding (the small strip around the edge that hides all the raw edges).

The plain gray for the border and the gray with purple flowers was also super cheap, so I bought tons of those two fabrics also. I haven’t used them for anything else yet, but they’ll make great elements in other projects later.

    Fabulous! Is the quilt for you to keep? How many hours would you say it took?

      Thank you! Because I love this one so much, I am going to keep it. That means donating a couple of the older ones though – we already have WAY too many quilts lol! Each of the 12 blocks took probably 30 minutes of cutting and an hour of sewing. Then probably … 2-3 hours to put it all together, 2 hours to baste and mark, and maybe 5-6 to quilt and bind. So I guess around 30 hours altogether.
