Toulouse is finished. Pieced, quilted, bound and washed. I worked on this quilt off and on throughout the year; I'm so happy to have it finished.
Don't you love the feeling you get when you stitch that last stitch onto your binding? And tie that last knot?
It's such a sense of accomplishment.... of cozy accomplishment.
I get pretty excited when I finish a quilt. I drape it here and there, fold it this way and that. Last night I snuggled into this one while I watched an old movie. Then I brought it to bed with me so he wouldn't get it all furry. Cause he would. And maybe he'd barf on it just to spite me.
He is capable of such horrors. But I love his kitty feet.
Finally I hung her up behind the couch. It's hard to get good pictures of the whole thing!
Carrie Nelson is a genius. She designs the most beautiful quilt patterns. I am truly in awe of her work, and so glad I made this quilt! I'm also so glad that each and every fabric in this quilt was from my stash. Even the backing! Woohoo!
Thank you for visiting. I hope you are all getting some cozy fall quilting worked into your busy schedules. I sure am. This go around I'm enjoying some mindless stitching. You know the kind, I'm talking charm squares and four patches, oh ya. x
