I finished the quilt that I showed a couple of weeks ago. I don't remember when I started this. I spent about 2 years collecting up the fabrics. The top went to my retreat weekend, 3 times, I think. It is amazing what a concerted effort will accomplish, once I decided to get it finished.
I am a big believer in the idea that done is better then perfect. I called this quilt "Thank You For the Music"
It is a very large lap quilt. I think it measures about 58" by 72". It is a gift for the child that caused me to learn to read music, long after I ever expected to learn. Music played a major part of both our lives for the years he was growing up, starting when he was 3. He is a man now, but I think he will like this.
There are notes and music and paw prints, and jazz playing cats. Even the binding and the sashing have music notes.
It even has a label.
The pattern is "Magic Tiles" by Kathleen Bissett. Someone told me it was quick and easy. I didn't find either of those things to be true. Since it took me years to get it finished, I can see how much my skills have improved in just one quilt.
