FINALLY! I just sat right down the other night and put together the last blocks for the quilt-a-long. I am very proud of my quilt blocks as this is the very first quilt I have ever made. Joel's grandmother is a quilt-making machine so I've never really felt the need to make a lot of these since we are already covered in beautiful blankets. But now I see why she does it. They are so much fun to make!
So, when I finally finish this quilt, it will be a special one since it was made by me. I'll probably try to hand embroider my name and the date for the back of the quilt so I can live in infamy and people can marvel for decades to come at how sloppy my seams are even with using a sewing machine.
Here are the blocks, starting from . Some of them may be repeats for you, but I am sure that I have at least shared the first two blocks. I have been way behind on this so it's really a recap.
And here they all are in my final layout:
Now I am on to more cutting and sewing as I try to finish the massive border!
On the path...
