Its done! Its FINALLY done.
Or at least the top is.
(or as my Carver would say, "the topper")
I love it.
The last three blocks were waiting on one more yard of the white. I bought it originally at my local quilt shop and when I got it home thought, "wait, this is a little off white...er...oh well, it will be great." And in fact I really do like the color of it.
Unfortunately I didn't bring the yardage requirements with me and just eyeballed it and wouldn't you know it? I didn't buy enough.
And by the time I went back to get more to finish off my last three blocks, they were out. And every time I went back to get more, they didn't have any. And the color was IMPOSSIBLE to match. I can't tell you how much wrong white, off white, snow, cream, eggshell fabric I have around here.
I finally went ahead and asked her to special order it. And finally I just went in and sure enough, a big fat bolt of white was there. And since it was the only one they had and they had only had one when I originally bought it I figured it was the same.
I figured wrong.
And really, its terribly low quality fabric too. errrrr.......... frustrating.......
But oh well. My friend assured me that it will just be one of those things that will just be one of those sweet things that make it all cool and homemade. That pioneer make do quality right?
I'm hoping as it washes and ages it will blend a little better.
I still love it. I can hardly wait to be in Washington next month so I can spend a little quality at my favorite quilt shop, Bayside Quilting and their long arm and get this baby quilted.
