A Long Time Coming

I have finally finished my longest running top!

The center of this piece was finished a very long time ago.  It wasn't speaking to me then, so I put it in the closet and it slowly faded from "in progress" to "unfinished".  Every year or so I would pull it out to try and decide what to do with it, but I would ultimately return it to the closet untouched...

But this past week I decided that enough was enough and it was time for this to work it's way out of limbo.  Some simple borders finished it up nicely, and now I'm wondering what took me so long!

Linking up with Let's Bee Social.


  1. Looks great. Must feel good to complete a project that has been "unfinished" for so long!

  2. Pretty! Congrats on the finished top. Borders have slowed me down before too.

  3. Congratulations on finally getting this finished - I'm glad you didn't leave it in the cupboard! It has lovely colours and I especially like the use of the very dark borders: they give it a really strong finish.

  4. Great way to persevere. The borders you've chosen really highlight the blocks. Now for the question I usually get stuck with - how are you going to quilt it? :)
