SPRING FLING QUILT...ALMOST FINISHED!

I have never done a quilt that I will be so glad to have finished and put away, or give away or anything to take it out of my face....this is the one.

It's not that it wasn't fun at the beginning to make, it's not that it isn't pretty, it's not the size, which is queen, it's the time that it's taken to just do it!  It's been since last April when I got the issue of All People Quilt that I saw this and just had to do it!  Well, I've almost done it!

I'm sick and tired of looking at it.  Does that ever happen to you to a project that you've done, and felt the same way?  I start a project and finish it, then move on.  With this one, I've had to take a break, mind you I did send it out to be basted.

I also had a hip replaced, and 6 weeks of therapy.  But that's not the point.   I'm sick of doing this one, that's all.  I just can't imagine a hand quilter making a queen size quilt and not getting sick and tired  of the project.

AND....I still have the geese to outline, the binding to put on, which thank goodness it's done as Helen (my private teacher lol) made it  last summer on one of those glorious afternoons at the cottage.

So while this is a bit of a rant...I'm almost done!  I'm almost done, and if I click my slippers maybe it will finish itself.

Did I sound like the sucky puppy?
