Finished Quilt!

There's nothing like accomplishing a big project to lift the feelings of overwhelming depressingness that have surrounded you for a week. I'd like to introduce you to my brother's Christmas quilt!

Tumbling Blocks
Sorry for the crummy pictures, the lighting was bad and we were both giggling in delight at the finished product! He refused to put it on his bed until I used 12 sheets of lint roller on it.

The happy hero
He chose the colors and pattern. I watched a youtube video, said a few prayers and 3 months later we have a finished quilt. 

Even though it "stinks like you" (apparently I smell like old lady fabric) he couldn't wait to put it on his bed. That's it for me this week, so here's a good night from one giddy girl to you!

Thanks, I don't usually make ambitious quilts like this and I'm so happy it turned out.

Gorgeous! Your brother is very lucky to have a sister like you (three months of work?! Goodness gracious!), even if he insists on looking the gift horse in the mouth. ;)

Sometimes I worry that I smell like an old lady/mothballs when I wear clothes made from thrifted sheets...

I mostly worked on his quilt on the weekends which is why it took so long. He really really loves it and has told me and other people so. It makes me so happy!

Apparently we can smell like fabric... not sure what I am going to do about that? Call it the smell of sewing? Invest in perfume? Forget about it and move on. I guess there are worse things we could smell like.
