Work in Progress Wednesday

This feels pretty monumental to me.  I started this quilt about 10 years ago!  It took a while to collect all the fabrics that I wanted to use.  I pieced the blocks together fairly quickly after I had all my fabric.  Of course it is the embellishing that took so much time.  Granted I would put the blocks away for a while when I tired of the projected and needed to work on something fresh.  This past weekend I stitched all the blocks together. It feels good to have thathttp://needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com/ done.  It feels like this quilt we be finished some day!  I would like to do some more embellishing over the seams as my corners are not perfect.  I will then need to put a back and binding on it.  I think I will use a burgandy velvet for the backing.  The binding is the part that scares me.  I really don't have the right skills to do a binding.
I am thrilled to have found this blog and  link with the work in progress that they do

Your stitching and embellishment are so lovely, and I love the different color scheme for each block!

I love getting out an old UFO and finishing it up - its amazing to me that you're someplace totally different in your quilt journey than when you first began - it gives you a whole other perspective on the project
