For now, let's just enjoy the finish! Working to accomplish this finish accounts for my absence from blogging these last couple of days.

"The hills are alive, with the sound of . . . relief! Gee whiz, but I sure dragged my feet on this quilt.
The bed in these pictures is a double bed, consequently this king-size quilt hangs off at the bottom and on both sides.
I have written about this quilt in previous posts, but just to quickly recap: Even though I'd never previously used the quilt-as-you-go method, I would say this qualifies as just that. After sewing all the strips together in long vertical sections, I machine quilted each section vertically in random distances. I tried to keep the stitching straight, but I didn't obsess about it if there were wiggly parts. I had to mentally think about how I would close the back after I'd sewn the front together, and this caused me lots of consternation. I eventually figured it out, and I am happy with the results. I will put together a post later to explain the process more fully.
