That's it. The whole enchilada! Well, not the WHOLE, quite -- no backing, no quilting, no binding, no hanging sleeve ... but the piecing is done! Whoopee! Hurray! I did the math, it came to 1520 pieces. A few were sacrificed to make the center square and a few others to square up th corners. So a nice round 1500 will be close enough. This is the last time I'll bore those who read this frequently with this quilt. I'll drudge on and do the necessary remainder but I'll show other photos and talk about other things hereafter. What a big sigh of relief!!!
This strip quilt was made using drier sheet as the foundation. This quick and easy method is always fun because I can choose exactly which piece comes next but will always be surprised when I put several together and see the patterns formed.
The mid-70s are a surprise! Part of me remains in the 50s -- age, I mean, not decade of 20th century. It's a joy ride, new experiences land in my lap and I've become a better quilter, poet, writer than I expected. It's a rich life for a person never rich financially. Hey, this is what the mid-70s are like!
