I started this quilt nearly 2 years ago. And I finished the top pretty quickly. And then it sat and sat and sat. Both because I HATE basting and quilting, and because I didn’t feel a sense of urgency to finish an Xmas quilt in March.
And then Xmas came and went and the top was still a top.
And then there was the great lost walking foot of 2013.
And then I found the walking foot, and quilted this sucker, and machine sewed on half the binding.
And then it sat again for months because I was too lazy to handsew the rest of the binding,
And then last week was Thanksgiving, and so I finished the quilt!
2 years later, I still adore these fabrics. The animals are by Alexander Henry, and they’re just so much fun. Alligators hold special significance for my family, so really, the fabric couldn’t be better. And the polka dot binding makes me smile so much.
I just realized I forgot to get a photo of the back, but it’s pretty generic. I’m so happy to have this done and ready to show you, and use for the holidays, that I rushed out some very bad photos just so I could blog today!
Now, off to the new job…
