I really don’t know what I was thinking when I said I would make the Over and Under Quilt but in the end I was glad I made it. This is the most piecing I have ever done on one quilt and halfway through making it, I started yelling at myself for even thinking I could make something like this. Then, after my pity party, I picked myself up and talked myself through it bit by bit and at the end I had a beautiful, amazing, wonderful quilt that I love, love, love! All I really needed to do was slow down and pay attention and it wasn’t really as hard as I imagined it was going to be. My son was very impressed too. His new saying is “OOOHHH CUTE!” and he uses it most often when I show him quilts, although he also says it every time I put on my glasses. Go figure. Here he is admiring my quilt with an “OOOHHH CUTE MAMA” and then pretending to sleep on it.
I was trying to show it to my husband because when he saw the Birchtree Lane fabrics it was going to be sewn out of he claimed the quilt for himself; however, Tyler insisted I put it on the floor immediately so he could roll all over it. Apparently it’s not just cats who love quilts! Here’s a picture of the finished quilt.
