Graduation quilt is a top!

After lots of bending and twisting..... I got the graduation quilt all sewn together. The photo is not great - way too hot out yesterday late afternoon and a wee bit windy.

I had to have an empty house to lay out all the blocks onto the living room floor. I had sewn the color sets into one's, two two's and the rest into threes. Laying them out was a lot of bending and twisting on my back but it got done. Boy was it big! (70+x95+) Then it was pulling and sewing into strips and then sewing them together. I really hate sewing long rows together..... especially on the diagonal!

It needs pressing, trimming and then I'll have to find a backing and get it quilted. It will not be done in time for graduation June 16... but it will be done to fly up to Vermont with me in July.

One nice thing I have learned about packing quilts to fly, they do pack up in a small space. They have those zip lock vacuum bags where you suck out the extra air.

VERY NICE! Looks like waves to me!

Yay! Sewn together at last. Those long seams are diabolical. It's a super looking quilt.

So glad it is getting closer to a finish. The recipient will be excited to receive this!
