After about a year!!! this quilt is finished! The hand quilting took the longest, but with the help of my mom, aunties, grandmas, and friends, we got 'er done! My mom designed, and my grandpa made a large quilt frame which we set up in my basement to quilt it.
The back is made from a crazy assortment of flannel pieces that I had laying around. This rust and aqua rose flannel by Anna Maria Horner is one of my all time fave prints, so I included a big chunk of that.
Hopefully I'll get some better head on photos yet, it's just kinda hard to hold up such a huge quilt! (I think it's around 90" square.
and then on a completely different topic, i wanted to send out a little 'thank-you' again, to everyone who takes the time to leave comments on my blog. (and if you wondered where I disappeared to and didn't reply to you, we were visiting family overseas and just returned)
i chose two winners from my previous granny square post, and you will each receive a book and a fabric stack if you wish!
i'll list your names here, so please contact me with your address if it's you. after a week or so, i'll pick a new winner if i don't hear from you.
i've decided that i want these little gifts to be a thank you for taking the time and effort to comment, and also for those of you who visit and read this dry quilty monologue regularly, so that's why i'm conducting a giveaway in this strange way:)
so here's the winning names:
contact me if you're one of these names and would like to receive a bundle!
