I finished a project!


I finally finished this quilt today. I've had the topper done for the last two years or so. Usually, I start to lose my quilting momentum after I've finished assembling the quilt top. In this case, we moved and I packed away all of my sewing projects and they stayed packed away until recently. The above photo is the back of the quilt.

Here's a close-up. I made this quilt using a bunch of scraps from other projects. So, it is a bit bright and a bit crazy, but I enjoy the overall effect.


Here is the finished project! Now, I've set a deadline of August 31 to finish the rest of my unfinished projects. I still have to complete a small baby quilt for my friend Stephanie's new baby (again, I've finished sewing the topper and yes, I've lost the momentum for now), a crocheted octopus that was supposed to be for Sammy's 3rd birthday (in April!!) and a stack of knitted rectangles that need to be sewn together to create a blanket for Paul. Anyway, this quilt is for my niece, Cecilia. I love the part when I get to give something homemade away and I get to do that today!
