FO: Zig Zag Quilt Top!

27 03 2010

The unthinkable has happened.

I have finished something.

Something big!

I have been working on my zig-zag quilt top solidly now, most weekends, for the last 2 or 3 months. And I have finally finished the quilt top!

It’s huge! I don’t know why I do silly things like pick such a BIG quilt for my first ever attempt at both patchwork AND quilting! A nice lap size quilt would have been just fine….. but, no. I have to pick the biggest one ouot there!

As I have been working on this I started out loving the fabrics and the combinations…. then I fell out of love with them. They’re growing on me again but I’m still not sure how I feel about them. I’m hoping by the time it’s all done I’ll be passionate once more!

I went over the my parents place today since I literally do not have floor space big enough to lay it all out on to baste, nor do I have anywhere I could lay it to take a picture of the finished top. Even so, I couldn’t wind the clothesline up high enough to get a good snapshot of the bottom row of the quilt! You’ll just have to imagine it!

Oh, sorry, you wanted to see the finished top? Here ’tis…

Getting close!

21 03 2010

I cannot believe it, but I have two big straight lines to sew until I have finished my quilt top. It’s a miracle… I never get this close to finishing things (at least not without a 6 months hiatus somewhere in there!)

I have no photos to post yet since I should now be in bed… but hopefully next weekend I will be able to post pictures of the finished quilt top. Now I’m excited!
