It’s done! And I love it.

I got Adam to take the pictures because clearly his camera is better than mine, and I wanted these photos to look different from my usual standing-over-project pose that makes it look like a narrowing hallway towards the top. So the whole thing is based roughly on the Any Way You Slice It quilt from Denyse Schmidt Quilts. I didn’t use a pattern, though, and I only made one kind of square.

The book uses a great cross-hatch pattern that I’m finding impossible to measure out myself, so I think I am going to send this off to be quilted. My mom told me she has a rule that she only quilts small things herself. Everything big she sends out. This sounds like a good plan to me.
