Dr. Seuss's Pickle Dish is now a finished flimsy. This has been a long and complicated project, but so worth it. It's a big sofa quilt, 67" x 81".
I found a perfect backing fabric, a loose abstract grid print in the same dark teal-green and aqua as my background floral. My plan is to quilt this myself, so I'll have to spend some time prepping the backing and basting the layers together.
Meanwhile, I'm celebrating a finish!

Jan, that looks amazing. Great finish and love the contrasts of colors.ReplyDelete
Isn't that beautiful?! So worth the time and effort!ReplyDelete
You are correct, the more time and care in a project, the better liked. I used to try and work fast and faste to get more done, but now I work more carefully and deliberately. I like the work more, but there is less of it.ReplyDelete
Congratulations on this major finish! It's spectacular! :)ReplyDelete
Pat yourself on the back for me Jan, it's so awesome!ReplyDelete
Wow! It was well worth all the effort you put into it. Congrats on a beautiful finish!ReplyDelete
It has been an inspirational joy seeing this project come together. I look forward to seeing the finished quilt.ReplyDelete
It is absolutely gorgeous. It's been watching it come together. Can't wait to see that backing fabric.ReplyDelete
Wow! This is impressive. What a beautiful top.ReplyDelete
You are so right. What we achieve is proportional to the effort we put into it, whether it is quilting or a workout. This was well worth the nine months you put into it. It will make a gorgeous quilt.ReplyDelete
