I won and I'm so glad I did. I finished the quilt top!!! It's too bad it will probably take me another year to finish the quilt, but at least all those tiny squares are sewn into our queen size quilt. I must say...I love how it came out and I know I will love it even more when it is totally finished.
It has a very mid-century modern look to it with the solid colors and it's rings. I love that.
Now, all that is left is to make a quilt back, quilt it together with some batting, and bind it. Advice from any sewers...do I have to sew the binding on my hand to "do it right?" That alone will take me a year...
With the finish of this project I bid my sewing machine...adieu. It is safe to say I won't be needing to do any more sewing until after the baby is born, home, and settled a bit. But, as I've said before, my number one rule for myself is...to find time for myself doing what I like and make sure my kids see me enjoying these things, so tiny baby Lapour will soon see that it's Mommy has many interests.
Very soon I won't be calling it an it...according to the midwife today, "You will be having this baby tonight or tomorrow night." Well, ok.
