A three-year old WIP is now finished!
I started this project with Bonnie during Super Bowl Weekend 2009. It was sort of a quilt along to use up 2.5" strips. I had a stack of novelties that needed to be used, so I chopped them up into 2.5" strips and started stitching.
All the blocks were done before the end of the big game. But when I laid them out all next to each other, it was kind of muddy and really didn't work. So I grabbed some fresh fabric from the stash and added some sashing and the fun border. And there it sat in the WIP pile.
I pulled it out again after a machine quilting class with Pam Clarke at MQX 2010. I wanted to try out her technique on something that would hide my mistakes. It hides them so well, you can't see the quilting at all! Here's a glimpse on the back. I had gotten through about 1/3 of the quilting. Back to the WIP pile!
A couple of weeks ago, I dug it back out and finished the quilting in a few hours. Another hour to sew the binding completely by machine and it was ready to show Bonnie during show & tell.
Totally Twisted, 60 X 76", completed April 16, 2012.
