A Small Finish

I put the final stitches in the binding of this little quilt last night.  The top has been finished since late 2006, but the history of the quilt goes back all the way to 2002.  I originally planned to make a mini jewel box quilt, but I wasn't pleased with how it was turning out, so the components of that quilt got set aside.  In 2005 I repurposed the four patch units into this little quilt and finally selected a border from my stash in late 2006.  Such a long time just to get this little quilt to flimsy stage!

I got it quilted in December 2009 during my quilting frenzy and now it's bound and ready to use.  It's a nice size for a small table topper or wallhanging.

Small or large, a finish is a finish. Congratulations, I'm not sure I could have stuck with it like you did. It's a cutie!

Oh, that is a pretty one! Great job getting it done..the older ones are always the worst to finish up. Doesn't it motivate you to get more done, though??

Congratulations on the finish! Isn;t it amazing how long it takes to finish a quilt! Great color combinations!

Happy sewing!
