Whew! Finished! Just Under The Wire

The Brotherly Love quilt is finished.  And, just under the wire.

I put in the last stitch about 11pm on Friday (June 29).

It is a simple, knock-around couch quilt for my brother and his family.  Four children.  WONDERFUL wife.  At 56″ x 80″ it should be large enough for a few at a time to cuddle on the couch. Or a picnic quilt.  Or for cats (who sneak into picture sessions).

Tutorial coming soon.  It isn’t hard.  Don’t let the triangles scare you!

This goes in my Christmas stack, which now has eleven items in it.  Thanks to Darlene and Cheryl for their nags nudges that encourage us to get a few things done during the year so the holiday season is more enjoyable for all.

Now, what shall I do for July?
