Rocky Road to Love, Part 13

Yup, I’m way beyond part 2!

Another quilting retreat and finally, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Everything is relatively square border-wise, though on corner is still a little wonky ~ Ah well!

On to the next burning decision: to “prairie point or not?” After a little research, I find a tip for continuous prairie points and augment it with pairs of points to create a scrappy look befitting my design. They are remarkably easy to assemble (though I hit a snag sizing them), and I zip up the points and painstakingly press throughout Friday night. It’s maddeningly tedious work, but every time I set a strand of triangles to a border, my excitement bolsters my resolve to continue throughout the following day. After the dinner break on Saturday, I finally ‘pillow-top’ the border.

Moment of truth… reaching inside for the top corners, I hum the theme to ‘Rocky’ as I shake my fabulous quilt of hearts and stripes right side out and run from one end of the room to the other… flying high now!

LaborOLove ModStripey2I’ve begun to hand quilt it, but really wanted to see what it would look like on the bed. Both sides are really quite stunning and more importantly, it’s kitty-approved. 🙂
