Done for now

Well there are no washing line photos, on account of how it has been belting with rain all day, but this is done for now.  Here's a kitchen floor photo instead.


For those of you interested in such things, I do have a little fabric left, but many are completely gone and if you could see it close up you would be able to tell that quite a few of the triangles across the top are made up of two, or in one case three, little pieces.  But I made it to the end, which is all that really matters.

This goes into the box to wait for quilting now and I'm going to take a few days to concentrate on my current quilting project and to consider my little squares with circles before I start on something new, although I am already eyeing up a particular pile of fabric.  

In the meantime, I'm linking up with:

Watching this grow has taken us and you on an incredible journey, but I reckon sleeping beneath it will likely bring you a whole heap of travel dreams lol
Well done indeed girl : )

It's just lovely and I'm sure it will become even more lovely while it cures in the quilting pile.

Wow! Stunning! Now, I wonder how you'll quilt this... 😀

Monica said...

When you said that you wanted to add just another row along the top, that made sense to me. But, I had no idea how to make that work! But you have made it look easy. This is just right, a firm finish and perfectly tied into the rest. Great job! This has been several months of steady work, it must feel wonderful to finish it up. :D
