FINALLY FINISHED A QUILT TOP

I am so proud of myself  I finally completed a quilt top that I had started so long ago I can't remember because I feel so embarrassed to remember OK.  you bent my arm it's been 12 years can you believe it , during the hot day's I just couldn't concentrate on cutting  out new blocks for the Amy's quilt along when it's hot measuring and decision making on what fabric to use and all that ,as I was organizing I found these pieces and I decided I am going to finish this I did !! so now that I will be doing free motion  it will be perfect to practice on. 


I started sewing two ,then two with other two  ,and then fours together to make eights and so on .
I just love the way the  stack looks all piled up ready to be run through the machine.  So my quilt is ready to be quilted , I can't wait to start I think it will be challenging and most of all fun.

There is something about simple squares in a quilt that tugs my heart. You are brave, sewing that many squares together at once...I would get them all tangled up together. But I bet it went fast after you got started!

Theodora, this is gorgeous!
12 years ago I started one like this, too, and unfortunately I never finished mine. Many of those scraps have now become hexagons for my latest quilt! :)
So, I am so proud of you for having finished this: well done. It is absolutely gorgeous!
