It’s been almost 16 months since I started this quilt! I even wrote a blog post about it back in December of 2012! It’s the Modern Maples quilt pattern from Amanda of Hey Porkchop and can be found in the Pretty in Patchwork: Holidays book.
It’s the biggest quilt I’ve made to date, and I think that was a bit daunting. It was supposed to be a gift for my sister two Christmas holidays ago. I felt horrible that it wasn’t finished and finally took the plunge this past week to quilt it and bind it. Perfect timing too, because last week was my sisters birthday and I couldn’t think of anything to make her.
I seriously finished this thing AN HOUR before her birthday lunch. AN HOUR! So I apologize for the lack of awesome photos, I didn’t have time to plan them out. She loved it and put it on her bed right away. That’s always a good sign.
This was the first unfinished project that I finished as part of my time off from Art School Dropout! If this shows anything, I think I made the right decision.Pin It
