I started this quilt two years ago – god, was it that long ago? – and finished the quilt top straight off. Then it sat around sadly waiting for me to purchase backing and binding fabric, and batting. Then, I purchased backing, but not enough. And finally, two years later, got it quilted!
The quilting is imperfect – I didn’t draw out any of the lines like I intended to, but instead, just eyeballed long lines across the top, as you can see from the photos. But in my estimation, a quilt two years in the making is better finished imperfectly than never completed at all.
Last night, I sewed on the binding. Wrong. And now I may be slightly short on it when I go to wrap it around to the back, but we’ll see what I can do.
This second photo is of the back of the quilt, where I added some extra squares to use them up. Sorry for the blurry iphone photo!
