Another One Bites The Dust...

I finished my 20 years in the making Churn Dash quilt.  I made the blocks when I first got serious about quilting.  However, since I was also doing crafting  I had a lot of polyester blends in the house so they were used in the background of the blocks. 

I put the blocks together about  5 years ago while up north with Dad.  He said it looked like a baby quilt.  Well it is the right size.  But this is going to be our picnic table cover quilt.  Terry and I like to go hiking and have a picnic so I think this will work fine.

So I down and many more to go.....

Guess what is coming?  Friday Night Sew In.  I'm signed up, are you?  If not go see Heidi and sign up.

Wishing you a quilty day. 

Hugs, Cat

Cat, wow! 20 years in the making! It looks great! Well done. And using it for a picnic table cover is a great thing to do with those poly blends!
