(almost) Friday Finish

Hedgie love
Remember this random red and aqua quilt which I started for no particular reason other than I felt like it? The top is finally finished after having started it a couple of months ago. I really don't like projects hanging around like this. I'm always worried they'll end up in project purgatory, so I'm glad the top is done.

The quilting will be next but since that's my favorite part, it won't take long as long as I can carve out some time in the schedule. Famous last words, right?

As it turned out, It was quite a bit of work to piece all those strips together since I needed 80 of them and that was only half the work for the block. I like how it came together though. It's been named the Stepping Stones quilt by my son.

Happy Sewing!

Your quilt is beautiful. I'm working on getting things completed. I find myself so easily distracted but one project at a time is my new motto...easier said than done.

I love this! I am working on a quilt VERY similar in pattern and love to see how it looks in different colors. Do you know how you will quilt it? I am looking for ideas and would love to hear/see yours!
