drum roll please...tada!
These are all my finished blocks for my "Journey Of A Quilter" project! The extremely well written pattern for this quilt is by Leanne Beasley.
The stitching on the first block commenced in July 2007, so it took 5 years to finished the 9 blocks! There are a lot of stitches and many memories in this quilt! And I am happy to say that I still love this project today as much as I have since the day I started it...and that doesn't always happen on long term projects (just ask any one of the UFO's in my closet!!)
You can read the long stitching journey documented on my blog by clicking here. I just counted and there were over 181 comments of encouragement and advice left on those blogposts over the last 5 years, and I thank you for every word shared!
I will sew the blocks together when my sewing machine returns from the "spa".
And then the next part of the journey starts - the quilting. I have been debating about the quilting decision, but have decided that the stitching has taken so long with the embroidery being done by hand, so what is another year or two extra to do the quilting by hand also?!?
