It's only taken me three years to complete this quilt.  I guess it's because I designed it myself and every time I'd look at it something needed to be changed.
It started out as my favorite things quilt, with baskets, houses and chickens, but it just had to many subjects and felt unorganized.  Then I thought the baskets on top were to heavy and the ones on the bottom to light.  So I switched them around.  I knew I was getting some where when I added the baskets on the left side.  Then I finished up with bigger baskets on the bottom, knowing all along that I wanted the quilt to be longer then wider.  I'm so glad I'm done....another big project out of the way.  Note to self...sketch quilt design first then sew!!!
