It didn't help the time line that I decided to use a beautiful solid fabric for the backing on this quilt and then chose to add some of the extra applique pieces to the back so I will essentially have a two-sided quilt. I am having fun with "ghost" quilting in the setting triangles and the inner border, but that means I have to draw on the applique pieces in order to quilt the design. My biggest problem is deciding what I will quilt between the appliqued teardrops!!! The size of that area varies greatly and makes it more difficult for me to decide what I want to do, so taking more time to make sure I figure out the perfect quilting design is all right with me!
Here are a few pictures of what I have so far:
I can't wait to finish this quilt and put it on my bed, but it will probably take me all year to get it finished since I'll be spending 3 weeks a month with my dad and one week a month with my husband! But, that's just fine with me!! I hope you realized your January goals!!
