Finally! It's Finished!

Last March we went to Idaho for a family wedding. It was a whirl wind trip of driving 2 days, going to the wedding 1 day and then driving back home another 2 days. The boys missed 1.5 days of school (I didn't want to do Independent Study (IS) with them). I think Jeff would have liked to stay a bit longer to do some exploring and visiting with family members, but wasn't willing to help with the IS so I put my foot down and said we aren't staying. (I know, mean, mean wife).

So when we found out about the wedding I knew I wanted to make a quilt. I made my sister a very simple baby blanket that didn't need piecing so I'm not counting that as a quilt made.

Here it is:
This is the front. I got the recipe for this at Moda Bake Shop. They have lots of recipes to make some very cool things.

This is the back. I struggled with piecing it toghether so it isn't perfect, but I guess that will give it character.

Here's to family and quilts!

SUZI!!!!! I adore it! It looks fabulous, and I really love the back...imperfections make a quilt all the more lovable! Way to go!
