It's just not the holiday season until I undertake a project too large to complete in time. Here's the first for this year:
This is a quilt I think I started in December 2006 for my sister's April 2007 birthday. Then I was going to finish it for Christmas. Then I tabled it indefinitely. But now it's back! Just in time (hopefully) for Christmas 2008!
It is lap size and the back is a poly-cotton blend, pieced from a large piece of green and a smaller black stripe, in what reminds me of some African nation's flag. The batting is some flannel I bought on sale long ago, thinking that I was going to make a sleeping bag liner with it. I can't decide if I want to hand quilt it or do it on the machine. Of course, it would be much faster if I do it on the machine. But I've found it very difficult to avoid puckering with machine quilting. We'll see!
