It took me 3 years of procrastination, but I finally finished Captain's Christmas quilt.

I actually had the top done in time fore Christmas of 2009. That part only took a few weeks. It is a tossed nine patch pattern.

The quilting took FOREVER Apparently I don't enjoy that part at all, so I kept putting it off. I did a few sections at a time over the next few years. I did a combination of stars and free motion quilting.

The binding went on in one episode of the heart of Dixie. Lesson Learned: I'll do straight sewing any day of the week over quilting.

On a completely different note, Harvey failed his will save as Cecilia cast her sleep spell. Grandparents please note this image is sized for desktop backgrounds.

Fabulous job, even if you hated doing it. I've still got this on my list as something to try, but I think I might fall into the same category as you with the straight lines thing.

Thank you. I have it as my desk top. =)
