Garden Steps Quilt Top is Together

I'm such a rebel. I'm supposed to be getting my house ready for the double graduations coming up in a couple of weeks.  I was also supposed to wait to put this quilt top together until after finishing all the center square embroidery designs.  However, I HAD to see what it was going to look like sooo....

I love it!!  I'm even becoming fond of my amateur embroidery--looking forward to the next design being posted.   It will fit a twin bed with a border added, but I really want to make it fit a queen-size bed. My husband suggested making six more blocks. The thought of keeping all the pieces in the right piles and colors in the right direction is daunting--tough work for my small brain. Maybe by the time I'm finished embroidering these blocks, I'll be in the mood to make six more.   Maybe now that I've run out of the Poetica fabric, I'll get some housework done.


  1. You can do it! Make one more block each month and Bob's your uncle, you'll be done by the end of the year! If that's too stressful, you could always make add several borders to bump it up to the right size :D

  2. You rebel! It's beautiful though.

  3. Yes, it is rather nasty, weatherwise, here in new york state. A few more days,.... then it's looking good.
    you do such lovely work and I love your blog. I wish I had your talent.
    Have a lovely weekend !!

  4. You have described all this well. That's what I meant, revelation!
