Start Here Quilt is finished

Remember earlier this year when I did my collaborative quilt sewing class/project?

Well, I finally sent it to Lynn to be quilted and just got it back Father's Day weekend when I met up with Emily in Nebraska along with the other sibs to surprise our brother.  I am so happy with what she did with it.

I tried to find one of the dark blue pieces from the quilt again at my fabric store to use as the binding, but was unsuccessful.  (See, my natural tendency is to match.  Obviously I still need to work on being random.)  So in keeping with the randomness and scrappiness of the project I rounded up the fabric pieces that were left and cut strips to piece together for the binding.  (Amanda Jean would be so proud.)

And I had just enough to make it around, just by the hair of my chinny-chin-chin. I was scraping the bottom of the barrel as far as pieces wide enough to use.  I wished that I had had more of the stripe piece below--and could've cut it on the bias, but no such luck.

Thanks to all the ladies who made blocks, inspired me to be more random, and humored me with this project: Jenny, Cassie, Cindy, Amber, Laura, Lindsay, Natalie and Sue, you all are great! 

Anyone up for round two? 
I've got more ideas floating around.....

Finished measurements:
55 1/2 inches by 68 inches


  1. I like it! Who gets to keep it? :-)

    1. This one gets to stay with me since I provided everything. And it was for a sewing "class" that I "taught". I don't know if anyone would be willing to do it again or not, if I end up keeping everything, but no one else is coming up with ideas on their own. So I guess I'll just keep doing it for now.

  2. I love it!!
    Now I will read all about it's creation.
    Thanks for the inspiration.
