This weekend I made a goal that I wanted to get my North Star quilt done. I'm happy to report I turned this quilt of blocks into this completed quilt top!
I put the kids to be on Saturday night and decided I was going to finish the blocks and the quilt top no matter how late it got. Around 1:30am - I had it all done. I knew I had lots to accomplish on Sunday so I wanted a completed top to show for my weekend work at least.
Sunday morning I woke up to 16 loads of wash that needed to get done, a messy house, sick kids - I was so happy I had completed the top the night before. Again, at least I could feel like I got something accomplished over the weekend.
After about 2 hours of cleaning, I took a little break on Sunday to sew the backing fabric together so I could work on getting it quilted this week.
One thing lead to another and....
and I got the whole quilt quilted on Sunday. (Yet still have a messy house and 15 loads of laundry)
I really love how it turned out. I got a new pattern in the quilting club my parents gave me for Christmas and it came just in time for me to try a new design out. It is an Anne Bright design called Floral Wave. I felt like it was the perfect design for a quilt out of flowers and paisley fabric.
The backing fabric was my favorite print in the line. I love this print in every color! Now I just need to get the binding on and sewn down before the end of the month.
