My Avalon quilt is DONE! The long arm lady only took four days to get it quilted, and she bought the baptist fan design for her machine, so I even got it quilted just as I had hoped.
I loved this quilt project. Waiting for the blocks to arrive every month was very exciting, and I really enjoyed the mystery. Finishing the quilt top was a chore, and I see why I hear so often people have years and years of mystery BOMs waiting to be finished. It just isn't as fun.
I love these fabrics, which are surprisingly hard to find. Luckily the monthly kits left me with lots of scraps! I think I could make an entire set of the blocks again, but I won't! I had to really hunt to find backing, and it took awhile to find 5 1/2 yard of it, but finally I scored this pretty red print on Etsy.
Even though I shaved 3 inches from the border width this quilt is still very large. It fits my full sized guest bed nicely.
It's great to have it done.
By the way.... this would be my 30th finish for 2014.... just sayin'
