It's nice to finish something! A couple of years ago my youngest cousin Brian found a quilt on Etsy and asked if I could make it for him. Since I planned to sew a quilt for his 30th birthday present, his choice made it easy. It also gave me a two year head start, and I allowed myself lots of starts/stops along the way. During the process, I also remembered I don't like sewing-to-order anymore. I fussed and futzed with a pieced border, but only one row of it ended up as part of the quilt (to cover Brian's bed pillows and not visible in photo). Quilts, like many other things I make, come together more smoothly when I have control of the whole project, but that's okay, Brian!
Punzie on Etsy made the Yoshi character (Mario Brothers' figure) and I pieced the rest. Ellen Patton quilted on her long-arm machine. I did the binding. Phew, FINISHED!
