I am in the process of giving my blog a makeover, so please pardon me as I work on it as time allows. Just two weeks ago I finished a quilt that just happens to be the very first one I ever pieced, years ago. This was actually some of the first quilt shop fabric I ever bought. I had never heard of Moda, Thimbleberries, Marcus, Red Rooster .... you quilters know what I am talking about. Once you feel the quality of the good stuff, especially when you iron it or feel it moving under your fingers while sewing, well, I was hooked. I fell in love with this Kansas Troubles fabric from Moda. I has been pieced for so long and I do not have any selvages to look at, but I think it is Seeds of Time. I have had it on my UFO list for "a while now", embarrassed to say how long. I know I have quilting ADD, but I think once I got this pieced I wanted to try to quilt something smaller, such as a potholder or placemat, before I quilted something this size. By that time I had the quilting bug and started stash building. Anyway, back to this quilt, I finally quilted it with a simple stitch-in-the-ditch and put the binding on. I just could smack myself for waiting so long because I love it. It is a generous lap size, 60 x 60, and fits so nicely on the back of my couch or on my deacon's bench.
