ALYoF - May 2014

Managed to get this done finally.  Have you ever had a quilt that just did not want to go together.  Everything went okay until the binding.  The corners are still not sitting right and I gave up and sewed them down anyway.  No idea what it's problem is and I got to the point that I dont care just wanted it done and out of the way.  Maybe the fact that I do not like the colors at all might have had something to do with it.  This is a BoM from one of the local quilt shops and was also my May ALYoF goal.

I quilted it on my regular sewing machine mainly stitch in the ditch with some fmq.  I can do this size without too much difficulty (arm/shoulder only gave me grief for a couple of days versus 2 weeks form quilting the queen size quilt).

It sounds like you just need a break from this one. You sure have a lot of work into it. Congrats on the finish. Perhaps, reward ourself with a new project in fabrics you love.
