I woke up to 17 below this morning. It even looked cold out there!
It was a perfect day to sit with a quilt over my lap and put the final stitches in the binding. I'm not sure what year I pieced this quilt, but I know I started the hand quilting in November 2010. It's a good feeling to have it finished!
I can't remember what year Barb, Ann, and I went on a quilt retreat to Minocqua, WI, but I know that's when I bought the fabric. Ann offered up the challenge to make something using the Jacob's Ladder block and fabric that we purchased on our trip. I definitely didn't want to make a full quilt using that block, so I just scattered a few among the plain blocks to meet the challenge.
Outside light gives a little better picture of the colors.
Now I'm waiting for it to dry off and warm up in the dryer so I can snuggle up with it and take my afternoon nap. I'll dream about my next project!
