Check another color off the list…

That’s it, it came down to the wire, but my August Color Quilt is done. Whew!!!! I worked on it late last night, but it’s done!

Green Half pictureI tried to find somewhere outside (fitting for the color after all) to take this picture, but because of the size I couldn’t find anywhere and I ran out of daylight (so depressing that it is starting to get dark at 7:30 at night.) So I snapped this one quickly.

I discovered something interesting when I was putting this together (for the 3rd time)…the size was really, really off.  This is very long and thin. I had planned on adding a strip of 2″ white and an outer boarder of long strips of the left over pieces, but when I got it this far I realized that the length was already to the point that it didn’t need anything added to it and I felt adding it to just the sides would look weird. bed runner or pillow coverSo I opted to leave it like this and I took the left over pieces an put them together – now, what I’ll do with that, I’m not sure. It could be a large pillow covering, a large dog bed (no dog in my house has ever slept in a dog bed!), bed runner, but it’s a bit thick for that. It actually could work as a lap quilt too.

I found out too late – at the end to be exact – that when working with triangles starch is your best friend!!!!!  Green isn’t my favorite color, but I do think this thing turned out pretty good considering my skill level!!!!

So here it is, fully laid out on my queen size bed:
