After a day away from my project I am back at it. As I pin the final pin and stitch the final stitch the full picture comes into view. I like it! It screams my mom with it's colors and patterns. At this time I would like to notify the Sewing Hall of Fame of my availability for induction. Ok, I may be a little far away from that, but there actually is one. :) Who knew? I did however finish the final two planned rows around the quilt. The final size is 5'4" square. My mom is 5' so it should be big enough, but a little bit bigger would give a little more fabric to tuck up under the chin on the extra chilly nights in Michigan. Fortunately that decision will be made on another day.
So there are the next two steps in the process, and what my fabulous model looks like wrapped up in it. Isn't she cute. All I need to do is decide if it needs another border for a little extra size, attach the back and add some tied points.
It is amazing to see what you can create if you step outside your comfort zone and spend a couple hours here and there on a new project. Of course it helps to have a great teacher to help you.
Working together Todd and Andrea have created a delightful world of monsters to share with the world.
