This quilt top has been in my pile of orphaned projects for over three years. That is a lot of looking at something and thinking, “I want to make that some day.” The joy of completion I received finishing it stunned me. Such satisfaction. Does the satisfaction increase exponentially with how long you’ve held on to an unfinished project? I’m not sure, but I intend to find out!
It is a short-cut quilt because the top came pre-pieced. I discovered it one day at Joann’s while looking for a basic boy print to make a pair of swaddling blankets. How sweet, I thought, hand-tied to a soft and cozy backing. I added a faux binding/piping which added just the right finishing touch without any of the binding fuss.
