2 years in the making

Side note- Bill will hopefully find out tomorrow whether he won the contest or not.





I am finally finished piecing this quilt.  I don’t usually take pictures of a quilt until it is quilted, but since I have been working on this one for 2 years, I wanted to document that it it pieced. 


This quilt was a block of the month from the Oklahoma Quiltworks in 2007 for the Centennial.   I didn’t even start working on it until Sept. 2008 at a quilt retreat I go to.  I was going to work on it this summer, but had other quilts I made instead.  I was going to work on it during the quilt retreat in Sept. but didn’t go since I had sick kids.  I just decided I wasn’t going to do anything else  until I got this done.  When I laid it out to take a picture I found a hole in the oil derrick block.  I am going to cover it with one of the cowboys leftover from the border.  My friend Jayme, who has a long-arm quilting machine, will quilt it for me.  The quilt is 68″x83″.  I don’t enjoy quilting anything that big, so I am happy to pay Jayme.
