Tumbling Block Quilt


It is almost finished.....and it only took about 15 years! Aunt Peggy gave me the fabric, book, thread, needles, etc to make this quilt when I graduated from college in 1992. Partially in my defense, I hand quilted it. But, I did finish that at least 7 years ago, because the top was done before we had children. I had planned to hand quilt it as well, but since having three kids I have learned that my spare time is severely restricted. So, I had it machine quilted and am thrilled that it is almost complete! I have to bind it and then I'll decide whether to hang it on the wall or use it on the bed.

I am looking at the picture wondering how in the world you made it look that way...my eyes go a little funny :)

The quilt is beautiful, Lisa. I did a cross stitch that took me about 10 years to complete. I started having babies and the cross stitch got put to the side.
