Admittably, THIS has been my BIGGEST ALYofF goal this year. More times than not, I asked myself why I chose THIS as my goal right now!!!It's been awhile since I've tackled a queen size quilt. There were numerous moments I did not think I'd make my goal this month as it got a little overwhelming. But thankfully, I got an extra snow day from school, my walks were lessoned due to the weather and my husband worked some 8 to 8 shifts. So I perservered...knowing I couldn't give up, this close to the end. I sewed rows together and added two borders. I made a back with a scrappy row down the middle to give me that extra foot of width I needed:

|Backing was made.|
I ironed six yards of fabric as even though I was lucky enough to find my backing for 35% OFF... it unfortunately had those deep crinkled wrinkles in it...like it was sitting in a sale bin too long...LOL!
|Six yards of backing got ironed.|
It took me the rest of a Sunday morning to get it all loaded on the long-arm, and then a couple of days after school/work to quilt it. I love this Fancy Star pantograph and thought it complimented the quilt well.

solid thread adds to this quilt's Primitive style.
And here it is FINISHED on our guest room bed:Jackson couldn't resist getting in on the "photo shoot" and wanted me to make sure I showed you the black 3inch black border along with the 6inch scrappy border:
And if you were our guest and woke up under this cozy quilt, here's that view:
It's such a collection of Buggy Barn learning projects/classes that have been sitting around for years. I also feel pretty thrifty having them all put together into a primitive sytle quilt and even better there is practically NO fabric left over!! LOVE THAT don't you!?
WHEW!!! I'm done!
