I started my quilting after Thanksgiving and after I finished the binding, realized I still need to quilt one corner, so this is almost finished. I machine pieced and hand quilted the blocks with an 18 inch quilting hoop (which I had too taunt!) and machine quilted the border.
I have learned a lot from reading your posts, so on my next quilt, I will square the blocks, cut the borders correctly if I decide to miter them (I had to add small rectangles where I shorted the corners!) and press more carefully. I had intended to use this as a table top, but will use it as a lap quilt. it measures 50 x 45.
I am a perfectionist, and my quilt is not perfect, and I still love it. However, I am a little gun shy about starting my next quilt. Finding time is also a challenge!
