Finally, Finally, A Finish

This quilt has a new name. It is now known as "Gently Assemble As Desired."  I stole the phrase from Marie Bostwick  author of the Cobblestone Quilt Series. I listened to her interview with Pat Sloan and Deb Tucker on American Patchwork and Quilting Radio Show while adding the borders. My quilt looks nothing like the original pattern, Hopscotch, but I love it. I couldn't begin to tell you how to assemble this one. I have learned that next time I make this quilt (and I will make one just to prove to myself that I can follow the directions on a quilt pattern) I need to make a sheet with fabric swatches next to the cutting directions. The fabric for this quilt is all flannel, my first flannel quilt. Leisa, long-arm quilter extraordinaire, took the quilt last Friday to do her magic on it. It is such a good feeling to finally, finally, finally finish a project this calendar year. I've been sewing, but not getting to the finish line.

It's so pretty! Flannel is a perfect choice--the quilt looks so cozy and ready to be wrapped up in.
