Brian stood on the chair so I could take a picture of the quilt. The quilt is a king size, and its HUGE!
Over this weekend I spent 16 hrs just putting the quilt top together. I figure I had about 30 - 35 hrs in the quilt. No wonder Im exhausted! I had no timeline on getting the quilt finished, but I once I make a promise to get it done, I get it done.. and in little time as possible. Just my nature, I guess.
Since this is a paper pieced quilt, I tore off the paper to help with the weight of the material and the paper. Im so glad I did! (I did leave the paper on the edges to help with putting on the borders). This is the pile of paper that I tore off, I did start by putting it the bag, but then I just ended up on the floor, so if it didnt hit the bag, it was no big deal.. but I pretty much missed the bag each time.. LOL
I think that Laurie Jean would be proud of my "mess".. LOL Yes that is all the paper torn off the quilt, and the bag on the right is full of the same paper! I gotta plant a tree now!
