It's finally done.
This quilt was started January 19th 2012 for the Sparkle Quilt along given by Jeni of In Color Order, and Megan of Canoe Ridge Creations.
I fell off the bandwagon trying to get a few other things done, and completely missed out on the finish party.
I am glad to have gone back to finish it up, because its quite breathtaking I think.
I really appreciated the feedback on IG about how much everyone loved what I was making. I think it kept me crunching along. This was my first time doing a whole quilt in straight lines, and I actually unpicked it 3 times before realizing that it cannot always be perfect. I finally accepted the uniqueness of the quilting and trudged along.
Binding also was a little hard to get through. I do not really recommend trying to bind a quilt in cross weaves, let along scrappy binding. The weaves started to come apart and luckily I did not have to fuss to much with it being hand sewn down.
I do really love the scrappy cross weave binding look, it was just hard to get through.
I tend to get frustrated with projects and put them aside for much to long. Thank you for helping me get this one checked off.

It's no secret how much I love quilts done with solids or solid textures. This quilt is no different. I think it's unperfectness (my new word) Makes it!
