SEVEN-YEAR Quilt

dennissquiltYup, seven years to make this McKenna Ryan quilt…..  But let me explain.  I started the project and then put it away.  I picked it up again.  And put it away.  Several more repeats of the same and then I went to a quilt retreat with my Mom.  I “forced” myself to focus on this quilt.  And I did.  But STILL it wasn’t completed.  So then I started working on it at night while watching tv.  Well, at least until my hands cramped and my eyes crossed!

Seriously, it was a fun project and I would make another one.  McKenna Ryan sells fabrics for her quilts, but I chose to use scraps.  I’m glad I did!  Using scraps made my quilt more affordable.  In addition, I didn’t have the pressure or guilt hanging over me that I had spent bookoo bucks and hadn’t completed my project.  Quilters need to be thrifty at times…..

So what do you think of my quilt?
