Design Wall Monday 5/27/2013 - A Completion

I finally have a finished quilt. I had been working on this one for awhile..you know the one with 168 flying geese. I even did them the "old school" way, which meant a lot of triangles and trimming, but it is done. It even has a label.

It took be forever to quilt it. I was just stitching in the ditch but my brain couldn't figure out a simple way to do it. Finally, after hours of turning, twisting and shoving from here to there I found a simple way to zig zag a bigger area and it went pretty quickly after that.

It is now washed and ready to take to work tomorrow, since it was a sample.

I tried to get a picture on the side of the deck but of course the wind picked up so I had to lay it down. Oh well.
I am going to try and get the baby quilt completed today and then I have to start on Dear Jane. I have 10 blocks due by next Wednesday and I haven't started on them yet. Guess I know what I will be doing this week. I really hate procrastinating but I can't help it when these days.
For more eye candy head on over to Judy's.
