Well this poor quilt top has been sitting around for a few YEARS waiting and waiting to be quilted. I started this as a high school graduation quilt for my nephew. It was # 5 on the bottom of a pile of 5 quilt tops . I finished the other 4 over the past 8 months, and now it's time to finish up #5 !!!
So, I'm linking up with W.I.P.Wednesday at Freshly Pieced since this poor quilt top definitely falls into the category of a work in progress !!!! (and then some !)
Anyhow, this is a simple quilt that I put together without any sort of pattern or instructions; I just wanted to let the fabric do most of the work. And since my nephew loves to fish, I found a few fun fishing fabrics and added to those. Now to machine quilt it ...... maybe straight lines or maybe long wavy lines to look like a river or waves on a lake. But, first I have to piece the back ; there's a plain off white center panel that all of his friends and family signed at his graduation party . It's not quite big enough for the backing, so I have to sew on some borders ......which I'm determined to squeeze into tonight's schedule since I'm trying to do Pat Sloan's "Sew for 10 Minutes a Day Challenge" !!
Ok .... I'm off to do some rearranging of "the schedule" so I can sew for 10 minutes :)a
Be back soon!
