I started Sand and Sea Glass back in 2011. That's three years ago - around the same time I started this blog. It was a block of the month, and I was pretty good about keeping up with the blocks. I even put them together fairly promptly. Then it came time to quilt it. And I stalled, and stalled.
I actually started quilting it over a year ago. I got the bright idea to quilt each block differently. Which meant I had to think up a quilting design for each block - yikes!
It got put on hold while we renovated, last year, and after that, I seemed to be unable to focus on any other project. In my mind I ought to be finishing the quilting on that monster. And yet, I wasn't finishing the quilting. Gak!
While I was off over Christmas, I twisted my own arm, and got back to work on the quilt. And got it done! Well, almost - I still have to bind it.
Hopefully, now that this monkey is off my back, I'll be able to get back my quilting mojo!
Here it is, draped over the fence.

And, draped the other way round.
I'll post some close-ups, and try and convince Mr. CQT to hold it up for a proper photo after the binding goes on.
Now, I remember that I cut the binding strips for this quilt at the time I put all the blocks together. But, do you think I can remember where I put them?
