Once I realized that the quilt was really and truly done I just kind of stared at it in befuddled amazement......I kept looking at it thinking "surely I missed something.......there has to be a block that isn't quilted yet.....is the binding really attached everywhere......" but all I found were a few spots of blood (quilting is dangerous business folks) and a completely finished quilt. Wow. Just wow......
And of course I wanted to show you a bunch of fabulous pictures of the whole quilt today but Mr. Sew Fab is out of town and it's a two person job to get those photos. Soooooo.....I just draped the quilt over our big chair hoping that I'd be able to get a semi decent photo to show you today.......and I managed to take ONE photo before Emma Jane appeared......
Doesn't she seem stunned that I was actually trying to take a picture that doesn't have her in it? Why would I do such a thing???
Emma quickly demonstrated that she was more than happy to model in this photo shoot. I call this her "don't hate me because I'm beautiful" look.
But she quickly grew bored of her modeling duties and settled in for a nap. Models are so fickle....
Once Mr. Sew Fab gets home I'll have much better photos to show you. I'm actually going to do a whole "start to finish" blog post showing how my little baby that started as a pile of wee little scraps is all grown up now.
Annnndddddd.......I'm almost done with Hooterville. The beaks and feet are done. The applique is done. I just need to decide on the layout and piece the top. And pick a border fabric.....there will probably be a "Help Me Pick A Border" blog post coming soon! I'm actually wondering if I'm starting to become one of those people that actually gets things done in a timely fashion! Dare to dream.....
