I’ve finally finished the quilt top. It had a bit of a hiatus this month after I pieced together all the rows at the end of January. I don’t know why, exactly. Well, yes I do. I got so many great new books for Christmas and my birthday that suddenly this project wasn’t as exciting to me as all the new shiny projects in these books. And unless it’s a project that’s going to eat up a big chunk of time, I try to finish a project before starting another one. So somehow as a result I just didn’t work on anything. But once I picked this back up last night I was excited about it again.


I finished it around 2 this morning, I just started the sashing after dinner and decided that I would NOT go to bed until the top was finished.


This is the top before I put the sides on. This sashing was a challenge, not all of the squares are perfectly aligned. And I’m still not entirely sure what the finished measurements of this quilt will be. But I’m really happy with it, and I’m glad the top is finished. Now it’s on to the actual quilting stage. I haven’t picked a binding fabric yet, either.
