Finishing Jewel Squares, part 3
The quilt top is FINISHED!
I cannot properly express how overjoyed I am about that fact. Not only am I glad to have Eleanor’s baby quilt done before she turns two (!), but I am also thrilled with how it turned out. I love the color and the variety of the squares. Do I wish it was a tad larger? Maybe, but I am not at all patient enough to turn this into a full sized quilt. If I did that, she’d have to wait for her wedding to get it!
This quilt has been on my “to do” list since I saw it on the cover of Glorious Patchwork five years ago.
I went from this:
Just in case you were wondering, you’re looking at somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,799 pieces of fabric, give or take a few. Guess who is glad she didn’t count until she was finished? Wow. Just thinking about it makes me woozy.
It even has a nice little rear end…
Now I am off to sit and gaze at it for the rest of the evening.
