Finally a Finish
My coworker's retirement party is on Tuesday night so I'm please to have the quilt done and ready to give to her. I've got enough IOU gifts haunting me - ugh! Nothing personal -really - just not enough time in the day.
One of my more recent tools purchases was this lovely 16.5" and the dark/light cutting mat. Both came in very handy for squaring up. Getting to the point of trimming was not the journey I'd planned for.
Glam Clam Top
Near final layout I was worried about finding space in my house to layout the final parts and was fortunate to use the big design wall at intrepid thread - thank you Julie !
Since the entire quilt was from stash and the remaining cut clams lacked the color variation I needed, there was a bit of fabric shopping that took place while I was there :) Now I have the beginnings of a mostly mustard-yellow perpetual glam clam quilt.
I brought the top with me to breakfast at the yacht harbor thinking that it would be fun to photograph. We couldn't find a ledge or bench to stand on and then the wind picked up just enough to shrink-wrap my good humored helpers. Happy to have this shot.
