Another Finish - Is it late or is it early?

Another finish this week! I"m sooo happy! I've loved this pattern for ages and never took the time to make it - and Thanksgiving I think is my favorite holiday! So finally last summer I made the top, and had it done in plenty of time to finish it up for last Thanksgiving.

And then it sat, and sat, and sat some more. It collected dust, got burried under new fabric, got moved around, got burried under other projects - you get the idea!

So the last few weeks my mission was to finish it. And now it is done! Quilted, sleeve on, binding and even washed!


I guess the question now is - Is it late or Is it early?

Lovely! Late or early, no just right on time as you planned (wink, wink). Like what you did with the backing.

Definitely early! Great quilt.

Great job Dawn. It must be such a good feeling that you finished the quilt.I love the result it is so folky. I am thinking of to take some time for finishing a few quilts. For me as a handquilter took that hours! I don't know if I can resist my fabrics to play with.

That is really adorable Dawn! Love those plaids and stuff! I have to mention your tiny blocks in your previous post--they are wonderful! I can't even fathom doing such little blocks. Good job!
