When I bought this pattern back in August of 2010 I don't think I knew what I was getting myself into. Last night I appliqued the last flower bud on and the top is done! I'm itching to get quilting it but I will stay focused and finish my current handquilting project - my Lily quilt.
This first picture is under the fluorescent lights in my basement.
What a fantastic time I have had working on this. I know my applique skills were challenged and I grew as a quilter.
It's very large for a wallhanging - I have no idea where I will hang it once it is quilted. My daughters were hassling me last night because the border squirrels and birds could use a stitch or 2 of embroidery - eyes... Technically its not done :0) But close enough for me! It has unfortunaltely already gone into the ufo bin to await quilting. Hopefully it doesn't have to stay there too long.
And now - what next?!!

I was sure glad to stitch the last set in seam for this quilt. The pattern is Circle Game - (somewhat modified) by Jen Kingwell. The blocks are done, pressed and trimmed - they are all ready to sew together. Now to puzzle out the best arrangement for them - lol!
It was fun to play with the block patterns this way :0)
My friend that I've been sewing this quilt along with has her top together. You can see how different hers looks in progress here. It's been such a great learning experience! We haven't picked out our next project to do together yet ... but we will!
