I really do always start out with good intentions. This quilt is one of those things that I started with gusto and then... well... It has been sitting in my sewing room folded up for a few months now. I pieced the whole thing (it's a large queen) and that alone took quite a while! I was so happy with how it looked that I really wanted to hand quilt it so it would be even more special.
This quilt it for my cousin, Latha, who I babysat (along with her siblings, Shannon & Saylor), every summer for four or so years. I got to be close with them, even when they didn't need babysitting anymore, really just transport to and from activities. Latha is now in college at BYU-I and this was supposed to be her highschool graduation present. Oops! I figured since I wasn't finished with it, I'd just give it to her once school started, but then we moved and I was super sick for a few months. Now I'm not supposed to lift anything over 3-5 lbs. This quilt definitely weighs more than that, and I have to move it around a lot while working to re-position the quilting hoop. So for now it's on a back burner. I don't know how it'll get quilted after the twins are born, but I'm trying to think positively! So here's hoping Latha gets this quilt for her far off future wedding (maybe)! *Edited to add- She is married and still quiltless! I suck!
Just not anytime soon! Enjoy the pictures!
