Also as usual with these retreats, I overestimated how much I would get done (even assuming no illness), but at least I had lots of bits to choose from. This quilt was one of the first projects I tackled, and I'm so very pleased to have it done!
This WIP dates back to 2012! I won the blocks in a block lotto at VMQG, and pieced the top shortly thereafter. One seam was a bit foofy and I planned to unpick it but that's where progress halted. Then I came to my senses, and put the project on my 2013 Finish Along list for Q4.
I quilted it with a leafy, viny motif...
and added some flowers on the ends, with a nice big sun for some sunshine.
It's called Reading in my Garden because those stacked strip blocks really do look like books, don't they? The quilt measures about 57" by 53" and I think it will go in my daughter's room.
Hooray for longtime projects getting finished up! Stay tuned for another finish or two. I was productive!
