Sewconnected wip: Quilt top is finished!


 Amidst all the cleaning we have been doing, I did manage to piece this quilt together over the last week and a half.   I am loving it so far!  It is 94.5 inches long, so it was hard to find a place to hang it for a picture!

 I do love watching a quilt flapping in the breeze though-or a quilt top in this case.  :)  This is from the sewconnected virtual quilting bee that I was a part of a while back. I made seven blocks to go with the 17 I received back from the swap.   I already have the back pieced together and the batting is purchased.  I just need to find a couple of hours while Zerah is asleep when I can lay this out on the floor and baste it together.  It always seems that is the hardest part-getting it basted!  I am really excited about this one coming together.

I added a scrappy type border to make it a little wider as I want for it to fit a twin size bed.  It is appoximately 68x94 inches, so I am hoping that will fit a twin size bed for her in the future when she is ready to move to a big bed, which I hope isn't too soon!:)

Super quilt! What a great bed quilt. And you may have added the border just to make it bigger, but it looks designed for the top.
