Busy, busy, busy! I had this done by 4 p.m. Sunday, well ahead of my goal. I would have kept on working at assembling the quilt, but I need to buy some backing fabric and did not have a car today....alas, RIP my '99 green Subaru Outback wagon, which bit the dust Friday...costs more to fix than it is worth....I loved that car... and #2 son needed his parents' other Subaru to get to work today. So no backing fabric!
Anyways, getting the top done was a major push...
Each one of those seams had to be tied off, beginning and end.
Now the quilt looks like this:
It is about to be transformed again when I add the buttons, which are going to be not only decorative but functional: they will hold the quilt together, serving the same purpose as tying it would.
I'm thinking about backing this with wool, maybe because it is so cold out right now. But I do want to use this quilt for getting cozy on the couch. Wool would be nice for that...and I think it fits the rather rustic theme as well.
I want this bound and finished by Wednesday night!
