As promised, a big finish! Okay, it could be bigger. I just haven't mustered the courage to baste this gigantic monster, so it isn't quilted. But still! This has been in progress so long, it still feels like a huge accomplishment!
Okay, so we had like 10 minutes to do this before Mario had to go to work. And it's huge and Mario wasn't tall enough to hold the thing up without it touching the ground...
So we moved so he could stand on the circle of bricks around the tree. Didn't help as much as we'd hoped! But that's okay. You get the idea, right?
This quilt is for my sister. It has been a loooong time coming! Hopefully she can wait a couple more weeks while I get the quilting question figured out ;)
This was probably my favorite shot of the day. After Mario's arms got tired and we were about to go back inside, I snapped one more. Cute, right? <3
And in case you were wondering how big it is... here is the phone picture I snapped right after sewing and pressing the last seam. Please excuse the mess! We have still not finished unpacking and setting things up and the bedroom is probably the worst! There is plenty of drapage over each side of the bed. I think my sister will be pleased.
