And here it is, my no-longer-a-UFO, hand-appliqued rose quilt...
The finished size is approximately 52" x 67." Hard to tell from this picture, but it is a large wallhanging. This photo gives a better size reference:
As you can see, I had to pull the couch away from the wall to take the first picture. Some rearranging is in order if it's going to live in this room permanently. That big ball of fluff is our cat, Sarabi, who came to live with us from the shelter last summer. It hasn't taken her long to make herself at home.
Here she is, glaring at our other cat, Reesa, and staking her claim on the cushiest spot in the living room.
She was so meek and skittish when she first moved in, and scared to death of Reesa... but I feel the balance of power is shifting. lol
I've been blogging my progress on this quilt weekly throughout the month, so if you'd like to see closeups of the blocks, sashings, etc., here are links to my previous posts:
And just as a reminder, here is where this one started out, just a few short weeks ago:
Two blocks and a dream... lol
Can't wait to see what February has in store, but I'll admit, I'm hoping it'll be one of my easier-to-finish projects. I need a break!
