The day has come that I can finally say: I finished!

It feels so exhilarating finishing a massive quilt top! This sucker is 7 ft by 7 ft! It contains 49- 12 inch churn dash blocks! Each of those are made up of 1 square, 8 rectangles, and 4 HST units! This quilt is epic. I. LOVE. IT.

That’s a lot of cutting I had to do. (Probably my least favorite part)

I hung my quilt top on my “design corner” this morning to finish it up. I hoped to finish in time for the Kate Spain blog hop hosted by Blossom Heart Quilts but running short on Kona Ash, not finding it in local stores, procrastinating to order it, then waiting, and making 3 super totes, delayed my finish. But all good things take time. I almost wanted to just leave the blocks on the wall it felt like I was in this amazing summer garden and I was being all nerdy and giddy twirling in front like a little girl :)

I chose to make a few different colored blocks with different arrangements as well. I think the overall look is fantastic!

I even made a filled in churn dash. I hope to add a little embroidery here :)
