*The following is the story of a quilt that has taken me FOREVER to complete. Sorry it's a little long, but the quilt took me a lot of time to make, and I wanted to document it for posterity's sake :) *
I am happy to finally report that this MASSIVE quilt project is finally completed. Yes, it took me over a year (just barely) to finish it, but it was a lot of work and I am really, really pleased with the end result.

This sweet little flannel and minkee baby quilt is a sample for Gracie Lou's, the local quilt shop (LQS).
I have a client who rescues a lot of quilt tops and blocks and pieces of quilts. She is amazing. She bought these cute little Sunbonnet Sue blocks at a yard sale, then sashed and bordered them into a quilt top.
This next quilt of hers is one that her daughter rescued for her. She found it in the remaining trash and garbage at a swap meet in another state. I think it is the cutest thing ever! She kept the edge trim of the blanket on and sewed it to some fabric she picked as a border.
I cross-hatched across the rescued blanket, using Permacore Dyed Natural thread.
