Finished after Four

Yes, it took 4 years but I finished it. This is a Christmas quilt I started for Christmas 2005. I had it all pieced before Christmas. I had it all layer up by the end of January 2006. However, it took until March of 2008 before I paid someone to quilt it for me. Then it took until July of this year before I added the binding. And now 2 nights ago I finished whip-stitching the binding. Finally done!



Once upon a time it was to be a gift for someone. But's mine...too much time has gone by and now I'm definitely attached to it.

Another quick sew project was the bag below. It's storing all my volunteer (school stuff, and Girl Scouts) folders. Cute, quick and instantly gratifying.


I have a couple more quilt projects in the works. One more that is more than 4 years old...maybe 6. And another new one. Both are Christmas related so they will be done this year.

  1. Beautiful quilt, I wouldn't be able to give it away either ;) Nice looking bag too. Glad to see I'm not the only one with quilt projects that are as old :)
