There are so many projects (like Diagonal Madness) that I've put to the side until "after the holidays," I felt totally driven to finish the quilt I'm making for the great granddaughter of a cousin in PA. And, in spite of a million Christmas things that need to get done, today I finished it.
I'm just tickled pink (or fuschia) by this quilt. In an earlier post I had issued a plea for help in arranging the fabrics in the design, and my sister had come through with a great design for the 6 fabrics I had laid out. But, once I got working, I could see that 6 fabrics were too many and so spent a lot of time on the choice and placement of the fabrics. I love it. I'll get a back and label ready and bring it to Jan to quilt and she will make it shine even more.
