A Finished Top!

I finished the quilt top today!  This was a big accomplishment for me, since I don't consider myself to be a great piecer.  To complicate matter even further, I decided this afternoon to make a pieced border.  What was I thinking?!  All those little squares, and if the seam allowances were off just a bit, it wouldn't have fit.  But much to my surprise, it fit PERFECTLY!  I still can't believe it.
This will be a fun one to quilt, with all the large white areas.  If I have time, I'll baste it over the weekend.  The quilting won't be started until next week, though.

This quilt pattern is a "Quilt in a Day" pattern.  It took me all week, working almost all day every day!  And this is just a lap sized quilt.  If someone can really make it in a day, they deserve a medal.

Congratulations. Isn't "finishing" a good feeling? Your quilt top is beautiful. Great fabrics, great colors, great design. Can't wait to see this quilt after it is quilted.

Thanks for sharing.

PS - My mother was from Gadsden and my sister now lives in Dothan!
