I did it. I started cutting this quilt last weekend, and this weekend, finished sewing the top together.
I'm calling it it "all mixed up". The pattern is well written, and although it requires a LOT of cutting, the results are well worth it. I'm putting this baby in the closet for a bit before I make the backing and quilt it. I was on a mission to get it sewn together and off my sewing room floor as quickly as possible since my cat was loving pushing the envelope with me by peeling out on it, making all those little pieces fly. I can now breathe.
I'm a little nervous about this next thing I want to tell you. You remember this retreat with AmandaJean last fall? Well, she is unable to come and do the spring retreat, so Tara at the Inn at City Park, here in Fort Collins, has asked me to do it! I'm going to be teaching on improv and paper piecing: beginning and advanced block design and construction. Here's the info for it and I'd love to see you there!
