5 years in the making

Yep - I've had this project 5 years (maybe closer to six) it was supposed to be a block of the month thing with a shop that is no longer in business. She closed up by about month 3 and it was like pulling teeth to eventually get all the rest of the months. I have pulled it out a couple of times and worked on a few blocks then I would put it away for something else but  I finally pulled it back out last month and decided to finish the last three months. There is one large and 3 small blocks for each month. I don't know when I will actually get the top sewn together but I'm taking a break for it for a bit. I think I want to hand quilt it so I won't be working on it for awhile - too hot,  I'll work on it in the winter so I can use it to cove up with while I quilt! I'm going to have to have some help getting it sandwiched - it's a biggie for me (the largest one I've done so far) At least it feels good to have all the blocks sewn together. I'm going to have company for a couple of days so who knows what will be going on around here. Sewing, stitching, shopping? 

Hope you all have a most wonderful week - I'm certainly looking forward to the rest of mine. (with the tiny exception of a grocery store run).

Maybe I can have it finished by the 10 year mark?

Tina, way to go on getting all the blocks put together. I really like the block on the top of the pile on the left. I vote all three of the s words that you mentioned. Enjoy your company!
