Another PIG finish


I am delighted to have finally finished this little...ok maybe not so little project.
It was started so long ago, that I really can't even remember when. My guess is at least 8-9 years ago.

A similar quilt was hanging in our LQS and I just had to sign up for the class. At the time I probably had all of 3-4 quilts under my belt, so why not take on something with a zillion little pieces in it??? I really had no idea the value of a 1/4" seam at that time either. At least that's my guess, as I was finishing this up. LOL!! It's amazing that I was actually able to get it put together and have it come close to square. It's not, but who will ever know!   tee hee

The quilt is from Judy Martin's "Knockout Blocks and Sampler Quilts book.
I have to say, there are some fabulous quilts in this book. But it is not for the faint of heart! 
 
Don't you just love the scrappy look?
Once this bad boy was done, I jumped on my blog to take it off my PIGS list. Yippee, I get to remove a project from that list for once.
But... Horrors!  It wasn't on my list.
What the heck?  Apparently that drawer full of projects I found recently, never made it to the list.
 
Drat! My list is growning instead of shrinking?
That's just not right!
 
 
I am kind of in the mood, to actually finish stuff right now, so it's a "so long" to this project, and on to another.   I made sure the new one is actually on my list.
I can't wait to take something off it!
:-)

  4. It's such a pretty quilt. Very ambitious of you. Nice to have it off your list, even if its only the mental list. Done is done.

  5. Sooo, so pretty :) Here's to striking things off our lists! I've been stuck working on two gift quilts so I'm getting antsy to get back to the list. :D
