A rare occurrence this weekend; I had almost an entire day to myself on Sunday! My husband had an event and took our daughter, and my son had to work. After I dropped my son off at the Zoo where he volunteers, I stopped off at the farmer's market for a short while, then headed home and began sewing. Taking a few short breaks to eat, watch a little Clean House and do some chores, I was able to finish piecing this quilt and also the back.

Deciding on the finished size was a little agonizing. I decided on 9 blocks by 6 with finished dimensions of 92" x 62" (9 by 6). It is destined for my daughter's bunk bed (twin). In hindsight, I think 8x6 or even 8x7 would have been a better size but there's no going back! It's a little long but still works as a bed quilt.
I don't know about anyone else, but at some point in my quilting projects, I begin to loathe it and just want it *done*. I was definitely nearing that point making sure I had all those gazillion seams pressed in opposite directions. Ugh! I was so glad to push through and get this one together.

I hope everyone is spending time visiting quilting blogs as part of the online Bloggers' Quilt Festival. My contribution is #286. I haven't had much time to browse yet, but I'm enjoying the diversity of quilts I've seen so far.
