I am so sorry!!!!

I have a confession to make...... I have finished my Some Kind of Wonderful top.....
After I joined in the stitch-a-long and started the blocks I realized this would be such a great quilt to hang in our shop's booth at the Norwegian Quilt association's yearly meeting in March, since we sell the book at the shop..... And I just kept going and going and.... well, you get the idea..... And all the sudden it was all done, and in time to get it quilted and bound before the meeting.

I do feel bad about not sticking with the monthly blocks, but I will be following everybody's progress! I think I might go ahead and make some more projects from the book now- there are so many pretty ones to choose from!

Love, love, love it!!!
I'm plodding along, still behind, but I work on it nearly everyday. I have to admit there is usually one part of the process I don't enjoy but it's just not true of this quilt. It's all good!!!

Susie said...

One word - AMAzing!! It really does look 'wondeful' all finished doesn't it? Good on you!
