Size: 52" x 81" (before quilting size: 54-1/2" x 82-1/2")
This quilt has a combination of hand quilting and machine quilting. Whatever quilting I could do well by machine was done by machine and the rest was done by hand quilting. I've done both quilting types on the same quilt before and it works for me.
So, how long did it take me? It was started on Apr. 2, 2015 and finished on Mar. 17, 2016. Just shy of a year. It was on the go for 10 months (sitting mostly in a bin) and then quickly finished in 5 days and 1 hour. The 5 days was for the quilting and sewing down the binding and the 1 hour to finish up the embroidery. Thank you to the reader that left me an interesting comment! Let's put the time frame into perspective, eh! :o)
This is what we spotted in our backyard last week. A pileated woodpecker. It was huge and it was odd to see it jumping from rock to rock looking for seeds. They don't walk, they jump.
