Whoo-hoo! My hand pieced Work In Glacially Slow Progress is now a finish. Label, sleeve, and hand-stitched binding and all. I put the very last stitches in the sleeve earlier this week.
It's much too big to photograph on my back yard wall, but I'll get a full photo of it sometime. Meanwhile, here it is FINISHED, draped over my sofa and coffee table.
Wool batting, beautiful drape.
My friend Sandy quilted it for me, with several different motifs in the hexies and continuous curves in the triangles.
I'm really pleased with how it turned out.
This quilt is now named How Many, and I want to thank everyone who helped make it over a 13 year span.
