Much as I wanted to be able to say I finished my Dutch Treat quilt in January, I just couldn't get all of the binding done in one evening. But I did finish it today!
21 months..April 23, 2008 was the date I made my first 4" block. I started hand quilting in October 2009 and didn't really work on it much all of November 2009 as I recovered from the flu. It's been a long process, but I've loved every minute of the journey.
I will never be an expert hand quilter but I am so proud of myself for doing this and it will be one of my treasured quilts.
It's hard to get a full picture but I may be able to get one tomorrow when my oxygen delivery person is here and can assist Tom in holding it up (he's a kind and generous person). It will be laundered by then as well.
