The quilt is done!

At long last, the quilt is complete. I mastered the mitered corners and figured out the binding and borrowed my mother-in-law's sewing machine for the final zigzag stitch (in the interest of completing this beast in the current decade, I declined on hand-sewing the binding to the back of the quilt).

Things aren't quite perfect but it is perfectly functional and perfectly homemade. What a wonderful way to start the year – with a crafting accomplishment!


  1. WOW! I am soo impressed - it looks gorgeous. I look forward to seeing and admiring it in person :)

  2. It turned out beautifully, you should be very proud of yourself. It was a big project to take on for the first time, kudos to you:)
