Post Numero Uno...

Out of the four quilts that I have started this year, I finally have one that is completely done! The rest are either waiting to be quilted or are needing some binding attached, which means quality time on the couch watching True Blood or MasterChef :).

This quilt started because I wanted to start a new quilt, but I didn't have anyone in mind to give it to and it wasn't necessarily in the colors that I would pick out to make something for myself. I was just wandering around JoAnn's one day, they were having a sale on fat quarters and I got enough to make this quilt with this pattern and in a weekend, I got it cut out and sewn together and...set it aside for months. Because it didn't have a home, I just let it sit.

Then there was a death in the family and I felt in my heart that this quilt was meant to be sent to the widower and his daughter as a sort of comfort measure. So I quilted it in one weekend and spent a marathon night on the couch handsewing the binding on. I call it my "spa" quilt and it will be on it's way to a new home tomorrow.

I'm so happy this drifting quilt now has a new home!
