Ta-done

Ta-done is a phrase I have seen a few times, particularly used by my quilty friend when she has finished a quilt.

And after 4 years I have finished this one! So Ta-da, it’s Ta-done.

I started this four years ago.

It came along quickly and I had ambitious plans for quilting it in jagged zig-zags.  Great in theory, but jagged with a walking foot on a machine means lots of stop, turn, start. LOTS of times. Again a learning what not to do.

This got pretty tedious and boring and I just put it aside. And didn’t get back to it.  For 3 1/2 years!  But I am trying to do some completions, and reduce my half done list.  So I picked this up and continued.

And happily finished it. yay! This tumbling jewel quilt has a full range of turquoise fabrics so I chose to bind it in a navy with turquoise butterflies, for contrast, but some continuity.

Not the best photo of the crisp white, sorry.  It has been rainy and dreary outside and my house is just not all that well lit.

So I feel good about a finish of a long ago started project.  My dear hubby says, what are you going to do with that one?  I don’t have a good answer for that. But it is happily done.
