Oooh, purple! Okay, while I'm glad this block is finished (it has been for some time, but I forgot to share it here), this was not what I was hoping to share this week. I was hoping to show you a finished Layers of Leaves or October Sky, which is what I'm going to call it now.
Thank you all so much for the encouragement on my last post! You guys are the best! I worked late into the night every day this week trying to finish it, but I knew last night when I was still doing the hand stitching that it wasn't going to be finished in time. Not only was there still the machine quilting to finish, but then the quilt would need to be blocked and then the binding added. No possible way, even if I pulled an all nighter and could just work on this. Sigh.
Oh well, I'm disappointed, but I'm loving the piece so far and can't wait to finish it. It will be worth the extra effort and the wait. Here's another progress shot.
So...while I don't have much to celebrate, I bet you do!
