While some projects are quick, like the Project Book Pouch I blogged about last month, some take a decidedly larger chunk of time. A year ago April, I started 12 hand pieced quilt blocks. I joined in on the tail end of Erin's hand pieced quilt along. I rather quickly made my blocks and set them with sashing. I hand quilted a few of the blocks but then put the little quilt aside. Looking back, I think I left it in the WIP pile because I had no idea what I would do with the quilt when it was done. It's little, about 24 x 30, so kind of too small to be useful. It's mainly white, so I can't let my daughter use it as a dolly blanket. Hmmmm.
I finally decided to dig it out and finish the quilting. It just took a couple of afternoons of sitting on the deck in the sun. I still have no idea what I'll do with the quilt, but for now I'm just happy to have finished it. Except for attaching the binding, the entire quilt is pieced by hand. I'm really please with how it turned out and I'm so glad I decided to join in the quilt along.
