Ready to Quilt

I had hoped to have Matthew's quilt completely done by the end of July. I'm behind schedule, but I am so tickled to have finished this top! I totally made this project my own!

I'd planned to do 12 blocks instead of 9 to make my nephew's quilt manly big enough. However, I did not have enough fat quarters to keep going. I'd already dipped into my Stonehenge leftovers to finish the last few blocks, and there just wasn't enough of the darkest hues to make one more block, much less three.

Block Eight had a piecing booboo I didn't notice until I finished it. There was no temptation whatsoever to pull it apart and do it over again.

Because I liked the block I messed up before I messed it up, I decided to do it again, closer to the pattern's color scheme. Then, finally, all the blocks were done! I could put them together!

I decided to use the booboo blocks from block one to make the fanciest sashing I've ever made. I used up all of the 2.5-inch Stonehenge strips in my leftover stash. And even though I lost a few points in trimming blocks to size, oh, how I love this top!!!

I have a yard of Stonehenge gradiant I've been saving up for the backing. So soon as I can get it and the batting cut to size, this baby will find it's way to the longarm, and then maybe I can be done in just a few hours!

Linking up with Alycia Quilts.
