Another One Off the To Do List

YIPPEE!!! I was able to draw a big line through one more top from my to do list. Thanks to the Charming Girls Club, a top that I absolutely love is finished. I realized that I started this one well over a year ago...I wish I could understand why I do this...I love it and then somehow I push it to the back of the stacks and it's lost for a long time. I need to work on this... I rounded up my quilt holder so I could take a picture...hmm don't think this is exactly what I had in mind...
There that's better...
I achieved my August Charming Girl goals! WAHOO!

Sue said...

Oh my! It is just beautiful! You do nice work!

Sherrill said...

I do that, too, go great guns to start and then hit the breaks then on to the next project. But it IS a great feeling when you do finally get around to finishing. NICE job..it's a beauty!

Allie said...

Congrats on your 2nd finish this month! The borders finish it off perfectly :^)

Anne said...

That looks like something Mr CnW would do...on purpose. LOL I LOVE that quilt!

Ginger Patches said...

Good for you! I put mine on my blog today too, we're quite in sync lol!! I like the white border. I decided against scallops also...I just didn't want to do the 6-1/2" maybe the next pattern I make by her. She scallops ALL of her quilts!! She told me I could bring it in and she'd walk me through it so that gives me more courage lol!!

debbie said...

Dandelion Quilts said...

First of all, your quilt holder cracked me up. I just love this nice big quilt. What plans do you have for it? Your points are all so nice. I just love the colors, was this a collection? You are cruising on your August goals. Now I need to get moving. LOL

Congrats on a beautiful quilt!

Karen said...

Wow! Great finish there! Lots of triangles.
I wasn't home at the time to commit to projects for August on the Charming Girl Club, so I am slacking at finishing. It really does help to participate in it.

Gretchen said...

Beautiful quilt! I love the fabric. Mr. quilt holder is a hoot! What a help :)

Wendy said...

Great work on another finish, I think that quilt is a keeper. Your quilt holder has done a good job too.

Judy said...

Fabulous quilt Carol, and good for you getting done!

Kelly@ Charming Chatter said...

OMG -- it's gorgeous! Really just lovely Carol. I do the exact same thing. Somehow, when I get the top finished -- I lose almost all interest in the project! If I figure this out, I'm going to share with you - and if you figure it out, let me know, too! Great quilt holder -- sweet hubby!

Screen Door said...

I love this one-- it'll be a classic that never goes out of style... Great job on the finish.

Jeanne said...

Way to go, Carol! I love that one, too. When you find the answer as to why you don't finish the quilts you love until they've been around a while, let me know. I have a long list of those.

Shasta said...

It is beautiful. Looks like you'd really have to be careful to get the fabric placement just right.

Mel said...

YAY! Love this pattern and the fabrics!

Gail said...

Very nice indeed! (although it was hard to tell draped over some fella's shoulder LOL

Thimbleanna said...

Congratulations Carol -- it looks great! Love that differently styled quilt shot too LOL!

Ohh, I love it!!! How did I miss this? Hmmm.

Lynda said...

lol - That looks like something Curt would do! To funny! Super quilt...you do wonderful work my friend.

joantufts said...

Lovely work...I love that the club keeps us on our toes and digging in the UFO basket...because I too put things in the basket before it is completely finished. I think it's called Obessesive Complusive Disorder(OCD)

Cathy said...

I got a big chuckle out of this post! Gotta love those quilt holders. I love the quilt that you finished, it is just beautiful.

Great finish!!

Carole said...

You've been a busy bee! Gosh, when you mentioned that I'd be busy with the shoppe, you weren't kidding! But like you said, it's a good busy! Doing a bit of catching up before I start my chores! You're quilts are lovely! You've really been going to town with completing projects! Thanks for sharing! Cheers!
