I leave for a retreat Monday, wont be home till Thurs. A quilt retreat of course! Sewing, eating yummy food, spending terrific quality time with my friends in a modern cabin at Pymatuning State Park. This is our annual group event, with 3 cabins full of quilters. If you happen to drive thru the park and see some silly old ladies strolling along with their jammies on…. that would be us.
And just for this event, I finally finished my third UFO to take to sleep under. This quilt was started 10.5 years ago. yes. over 10 YEARS ago. It is the second quilt top I ever pieced. I had no idea what a square up ruler was, nor how to use one. The star points are all cut off, none of the seams match where they should. The name of the quilt is Farmer’s Daughter.
When I quilted it last week, I decided to try some new things since it would make a great practice quilt. I also decided on the no ripping rule. Which means no ripping out was aloud. I didnt. I maybe should have. But I didnt.
I still love this quilt. Not just because it is done, but because I can see how far I have come in 10 years. I still love the colors, the fabrics, the pattern. All in all, its craptastic!
