” …. a long and winding road..” That’s what I think I heard my pastel quilt humming the day I pinned it to the design wall for the last time. I, on the other hand, asked, where’s the marching band? Drum roll? Pastel bits of confetti? Okay, so maybe it isn’t worth a whole marching band, but this has been 14 years in the making, so marching band or not, it’s still a big deal!
Since I created my own random block arrangement, without thinking too far ahead, I backed myself into a bind when I got to the lower right hand corner, fresh out of blocks, with a gaping, odd shaped, empty spot. So I made this to fill the void.Then I sewed the last few seams, added borders, measured and seamed the backing and it’s ready for the quilter!
With no further adieu, let me introduce my FINISHED Pastel Quilt top:Let’s share the moment by linking to Patchwork Times where you can see what others are working on. As for me, I’m taking a break from pastels and working on this UFO for awhile: See related posts: UFO Challenge, UFO Project Update and The Pastel Project – A Week Later
