I started this quilt in 2006 when I joined the Utah Quilt Guild's statewide round robin exchange. I have some fun blocks in this quilt from about 12 other ladies from around the state of Utah. I have spent the last few years off and on making more blocks. Well, last week I finished making the last few and put them together. With these blocks, the quilt measures 72" by 84".
I added one small dark blue border the other day, so now I am just waiting to find that perfect red and blue print to add a larger second border. It will end up at 88" by 100". I started this quilt with intentions of it going on my bed. I think that is where it will end up!
I am such a fickle woman, because now that the veggie, perennial, and shrub catalogs are showing up in the mail, I want to think about yard work! It doesn't help that we still have NO snow, when the yard is usually buried by a foot of it in January! It makes planning projects so much easier when I can see what I need to see! Actually, I think I may take the shovel out today and see how frozen the ground is, and play in the dirt for a bit if I can!
