let us contemplate the word....

From the Mirriam-Webster online Thesaurus -

Entry Word:
complete
Function:
adjective

Text: 1 not lacking any part or member that properly belongs to it..

Last night at precisely 6:26pm. The quilt below was complete. Complete as in, not lacking any part or member....yada yada yada....(see above). It is quilted, bound and labeled. Almost 400 inches of binding, hand sewn. My fingers are s-o-r-e... and my thumb aches. But I am so happy to have it finished. This was a free BOM through Claudia's Quilt Shoppe. Beverly brought it to the quilt guild as a BOM from May 08 to May 09. (with Claudia's permission). It is now a "for sale" pattern. It was really fun to scramble each month to find the fabric and cut the pieces and have all the blocks ready for the next month. There are a LOT of blocks. Each month we had to make anywhere from 4-8 blocks. Each one using the same pattern, but different fabrics.



It is laid on the bed in my bedroom. It will not live there. I am not sure where it will live. I just didn't have anywhere else large enough to photograph it...

Side note - After finishing the quilt last night, I laid it out on the floor in the family room. Hubby kept saying turn in over, turn in over... "Yea," he says "I like the blue side". GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




Happy Sewing,
Nancy

I LOVE it...and what do husbands know???? Great job on this. Thanks for sharing it with us...you can be really proud of how it looks...on the RIGHT side.....too "boring" on the reverse side, but a handy thing to have if you use it in a room where you are having a boring houseguest, I suppose!
