Progress on Aidan's Quilt

I honestly thought I would have Aidan's quilt finished by now, but spending nearly three weeks in bed with an upper respiratory infection does not make it easy to accomplish anything.  The few times I did have a tiny bit of energy I used it to either throw in a load of laundry, empty the dishwasher, or take a shower.   Today, was the first time I was able to get into the sewing room in well over a month.  It was a treat!

I used all the fabrics I had left over from the front, both Alabama prints and the houndstooth, then added a red blender and a black/white print from my stash to make the backing.   It's about 77" by 86" at this point, plenty big enough.  Next up -- basting!!

A Lovely Year of Finishes 


  1. I'm sorry that you've had to spend so much time recuperating :( Doesn't it seem like such a waste to feel so bad you can't even sew? You are in my thoughts.

  2. You're still making headway. That's all that counts.

  3. Good for you to get the backing put together. Was sorry you were under the weather and didn't feel like sewing. That is really a bummer. You are making more progress on your projects than I am and I don't have the excuse of being ill. I'm just slow!
