Finished is a small exaggeration. I haven't clipped odd ends of thread and have to do the label but, yes, I've finally got this quilted and bound. Phew! Seemed like a long haul for a throw size quilt.
I honestly don't understand why I don't get true color with my camera. This was outdoors on the lawn in nice sunlight but the pink is all washed out, it's really a very vivid pink. I think I need a new camera. ... some day.
So tomorrow I'd do the last bit of cosmetic surgery on this. Then I have my May journal quilt to do. It took me a long time to decide what to do but now I know and can get it done fairly soon. And I have small things that I guess are properly called "quilties" to make. They'll be pretty quick too. Then I can go on with a paper pieced quilt I've had on my "Unstarted UFO list" And I have other ideas rolling around in the old cranium too. Always fells great to finish something.
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!
