edit: adding my link up for 2016 FAL Q3 for my finished quilt! I'd have to guess that this particular one has made an appearance on more FAL goal lists than any project - ever.

Funny enough I was worried about the light thread contrasting on the dark fabric and although it was intimidating stitching on those blocks, I could see what I was doing much better than then when it blended on the light.
Isn't this shot a crack up? With photos unless there is an object to judge it's hard to tell size.
The measurement of the motif determined the width of the shams and the pillows were fortunately close to being the same width. At the suggestion of my friend Anna at our guild Sew Day I boxed the corners for a cleaner fit.
Naming a quilt is something I enjoy - a feeling not shared by everyone apparently - check out Debbie's post and reader comments to see what I mean. Of course it's a delectable mountain because that's the block name, but it deserves a title. It's been referred to "my Retreat quilt" because I've taken it to every single one over the years.
I've also called it my Parson Gray (PG) quilt because although I have a scrappy aesthetic, my son does not and pre-approved each fabric used. So with a play on the initials, I've titled it Parental Guidance. I'm happy to say, he's grown into wonderful young man and I am extremely proud to be his mom.
