Noah's Quilt - A Late Finish

I had set finishing Noah's quilt as my July goal.  It was a lot to accomplish in one month even if we would have been home the entire 31 days!  We were gone for a week, but I still managed to get the borders on it, baste it, quilt it, and bind it.  I finished it about 20 hours after the deadline. 



I machine quilted this one.  Using two different threads and two different patterns.  It was worth having to tie off all those threads because I think it turned out great.


















I like the pattern......


























......and I love the pieced back.  The lacrosse fabric is pretty cool, plus I used up the leftover navy from the front and some blue from my stash.

















































I slept under it (tradition!), washed and dried it, photographed it, and then forgot about getting it to my grandson for a couple of weeks.  Ooops!




























The main thing is that Noah is happy with it.  



























I'm pretty sure he'll enjoy it for a long time.

20 hours late?! Don't knock yourself out over that. You did a great job and it is a job well done.

Cool quilt, Sandy! Your original pattern made those fabrics play nicely together (pun intended).
