quilt along: week 4

I got a bit behind on my quilt, but just by a few days. Thankfully week 4 was a little less time consuming. Here was my finished sewn quilt top from week 3- which I finished late.


And the back, which was not supposed to be pieced together at all, but I am playing nurse to too many this week (if you aren't recovering from surgery at our house, you have a cold) to run out to the fabric shop. I liked that this didn't have to be exact.


week four: assembling your quilt sandwich (full details here at I have to say)

this part really just took an hour or so to get together. The backing was laid down first, then the quilt batting (warm and natural 100% cotton), and finally the top.

My quilt is now peppered in safety pins. Having a helper is important. Mine is our cat Ellis.


This week's assignment is to quilt the quilt. With each step, I feel like It's getting so close to being done, and then I realize there is still a lot of work.

Here are my other weeks:
Week 1: choosing and preparing fabrics
Week 2: cutting your fabrics
Week 3: sewing the quilt top

It looks good. Bee must have a cold or she would be a great helper.

You are so right that in many things in life, "With each step, I feel like It's getting so close to being done, and then I realize there is still a lot of work."

Love ALways,

Dad
