It took me a long, long time to get the top and backing finished, not because they were difficult or time consuming to put together, but because I went on vacation, work has been hectic, and I trained for (sort of) and completed two half marathons. I was supposed to do a third half marathon after Thanksgiving, but I didn't feel like getting out in the crazy traffic to go pick up my race packet (lame...I know).
In any case, I picked up the quilt after the quilting was completed a couple of weeks ago, made the binding and finished sewing it down earlier this week. It was a little grey this morning, but I thought I'd snap a couple of pics while it was on my mind. Ta da!
The quilt finished at 66" wide x 76" long and was backed using Kona Amber with a pieced strip of leftover fabrics as an accent. It was quilted in a swirl pattern using the same amber colored thread for the front and the back.
I haven't put it out yet, since my Christmas quilt is occupying the couch until New Year's Eve - that's when this new quilt will take it's place in my living room. I can't wait!
