It's a rare day when I can actually boast that something is done so far in advance of a deadline. My procrastination generally wins out. But for whatever reason this project was calling to me, so I took it up and by gosh I finished it over the weekend.
I have tried to figure out when exactly I made this quilt top, and my blog is no help at all. I took about half a year off from blogging back in 2010, so I wonder if perhaps I didn't make this quilt top during that stretch. I have it listed in 2011 as a finish, but I don't see any posts about making it which is odd. The pattern is from an old Spring/Summer 2010 Quilt Sampler magazine; it was called Carefree Romance. Even though I don't seem to know the exact date I made it, I do remember that it was super fast and easy to make.
This link is about the first History Day demonstration that I did - I began quilting this quilt top that day. Thinking that this has taken me over 4 years to finish is somewhat embarrassing. I worked on it for a good while after that History Day event. Then it likely got put away until one of the Olympics came on. I seem to like having a project like this for times when there will be lots of TV watching.
I put it on the UFO list for 2015. I was tired of moving it out of my way all the time. It came up as the February project, so I put it in a portable frame on Friday morning. I took it to JoAnn's for our Friday morning get together. I knew I was really close to being finished, and through the remainder of the weekend I just finished it. Binding and all! Whoo-hoo!
End of story. Finally.
Happy Quilting, Friends!
