I finally finished the quilt that I started this past winter down in Corpus Christi.  While we were there I put the squares together from the two triangles.  I laid it out and put together the rows going across.  When we got home I kind of put it aside for awhile and made a few purses and totes.  Then I put the rows together in May.  When we came to the park I put the top, batt, and back together and worked on the quilting.  On Saturday I put the binding on and it was finally done.  That's too long to spread out a project!  You kind of get tired of it if it takes too long. 

I think it's going to reside in  my bedroom.  Our bedspread is that pretty blue, just plain.  I think I could fold this across the bottom or put it on a trunk at the end of the bed.  I'll post a photo when it gets to it's place!

Gorgeous. I thought I was going to get some quilting done this summr but that certainly didn't come to fruition. I'm jealous.

This is really cool. How long does it take to make a quilt? I've always wanted one with a dinosaur on it :D
