I'm done with the quilting, done with the binding, done with getting the marking lines out, done with the label, done with the sleeve, and now . . . done with the pictures. Wow! Doesn't that feel good!
Back on June11, 2011. I talked about having the piecing all done. The quiting was finished either the end of December or the first part of January. I guess my memory must be getting bad as I don't remember for sure, maybe I should start keeping better notes.

|My Puzzle Quilt|
63" x 79"
The original idea for this quilt came from the book Create A Quilt by Joyce Mori. I took the book home as part of the book challenge for the Maquoketa Town & Country Guild Guild. The scrappy fabric was from a 6" fabric exchange by the same guild the year before. Oh, it is so much fun to combine two projects into one! I cut the 6" squares down to (4) 2.5" squares making them finish at 2".
Have I told you lately that I don't like making borders for quilts any more. It was so much fun to incorporate a border into the block piecing. I'm going to do this more if it works with the design, either that or I won't put a border on at all, like they used to do.
Have a great day, I'm going back to my sewing machine for a while.
