This finished quilt top has been a long time
in the making.
I'm not sure when I began appliqueing the blocks,
but it was a least two years ago.
A little work would be done,
it'd get put away for a while
before being pulled out and a little more
work would be done.
Earlier this year I decided it was going to be finished.
Finally, it's a completed top.
I am pleased with the finish,
but had the most difficult time finding the outer border fabric.
Do you ever have something in mind
and nothing works because it isn't that?
I'm not sure how many quilt shops I visited,
how many online sites I checked and
how many times I looked at my stash,
but nothing was working for me.
Several pieces of fabric came home with me and were scrapped.
Finally, I found this piece the other day.
While it isn't even close to what I had in mind,
I'm pleased with it and think it looks nice with
Now to get it quilted!
