Step top is completed!!!!!

Thank you everyone for all of your comments yesterday (and the day before) I am so behind in getting back to anyone. I have been so hyper focused on getting this done I have been falling down on other important jobs, like saying thank you! 

I filled the entire foyer yesterday and was able to sew almost all the pieces together by midnight. 


It was a beautiful day yesterday so I had to get my 6 miles in and take a short break on the hammock...the shoes made me do it! I felt like such a slacker with so much sewing still to do!!!!


The finished top!!!!! It took two people and hanging it over the deck to get a photo :o) I am not sure how to get a pic of a big quilt and for it to look good,LOL! I really did not intend for it to be so big ( 78x87)  but I LOVE it!!!!!





Rachel at Stitched in Color added some more prizes to the awesomeness for Scrap Attack. You still have time to make a pillow, a mini or something else to link up!

Just think of the dreams you could have under that thing!

So beautiful! I rarely use white but when I see how fabulous it looks in a quilt like yours, I feel the urge to run out and buy a few bolts!

I am also a runner. One of my next projects (I hope) is to make a small bag with tons of pockets to keep all my running "stuff" (iPod, ear buds, watch, phone, etc). Actually, I just read your "About Me" and other than the # of kids / grandkids, I tihnk we may be twins! :-)

Returning to the quilt... are you going to quilt it yourself?

Teje said...

Hmmm ... I run only to my sewing room. Your quilt is going to be amazing! I brought to my mind a huge cross stitching! It's very beautiful! Happy weekend! x Teje

I love the way you placed those lovely blocks!

That quilt top is awesome! I love how you decided to set the blocks. I have been toying with starting a Tokyo Subway quilt and I love your take on it. Very purty.

Diann said...

When I saw the photograph of your quilt, the first thing I thought of was hourglasses. I don't suppose that's what you had in mind, but I like the quilt (or the top, anyway).
