A Delightful Daizie Finish At Last!

Well it is finished. Finished! Complete! At last! I really don't have much more to say than YAHHH! I thought that I had started this one back in 2007, but reading back on my blog to double check I found this first post here which is dated January 2007 and that says the 40 daize blocks in the photo haven't seen the light of day since June 2005. I didn't start blogging till 2006! So I'm going to say that this quilt was started in June 2005 and finished in August 2013. Far out, that is a long time.....

 Behind every quilter is a paitent and tolerant loving husband. Someone to hold the quilt up at the end of the day for you. Thank you Daz!

 I sent this away to be professionally quilted at KoolKat Quilting. Its an all over meander in a pale green, its very subtle.

We went out to take these photos in a friends front yard out of town. Awesome boab in the background. The quilt is now on our bed, its taken eight years to get there! I am just very happy it is complete, well except for the label!

It. Is. GORGEOUS!

And I don't think eight years is an unreasonable length of time for a project as beautiful as this. Not at all! :)
