Long Time....

I can't believe it, no really. I never thought I would get there by tonight but here it is! My top is finished, it's taken a long time ;-) but it is a quilt top.... And I love it. OK, I'll take a better picture in the morning with day light (if there is any tomorrow)
Better pictures in day light!

but I love how this scrappiest of the scrappy quilt has turned out.

I have made the quilt out of my scrap boxes almost entirely and didn't plan the blocks or colours so much. I just took whatever caught my eye while I was making the blocks. And although it is really scrappy it works I think. Plus there are a lot of pieces in there that I have used in quilts/bags/gifts etc and that reminds me of someone or a special occasion, a real scrappy quilt full of treasure.

Of course before getting to the point of a quilt top, I had to quick quick quick finish my pineapple blocks
so I could finish Part 5

and my quarter log cabin too...
to finish Part 6

And with 5 and 6 finished it was time to put together the second half of the top
Before joining the two half to have the top
I never thought I'd beat the deadline as I was so behind. I had kept up with the Quilt-Along until around my daughter's communion in May. I never caught up after that and of course I squeezed a few other projects in the meantime. But of course, as usual with me... nothing better than a deadline to keep me focused!
and all these additional blocks take my total for July to 34 blocks.

And just in case you are wondering what's next, stay tune.....Angie is starting another quilt along in August that I am planning to join again. No time to rest :-)
