Ok, so back in the fall of 2005 I was in a quilt square swap here on Craftster. I packed all the squares away in an envelope which got stuck at the bottom of one of my fabric bins and forgotten. Fast forward to last week and I finally unloaded all of my fabric and organized it on shelves and found the envelope with all the squares in it. I decided to sew it up and finish it yesterday! So here it is! The finished quilt from a swap 7-1/2 years ago!! Its a cute little throw, measures 40" by 50" and will probably wind up on my wall in my sewing area


employed = hardly any time to sew :-(

That is beautiful, I like all the differences in the squares and you put them together wonderfully.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!

I love all the colors and patterns. The black border goes very well with the squares.
