As I was quilting (and quilting and quilting), Robert Frost kept popping into my head. "Miles to go before I sleep" ... and then I thought, yeah, more like miles to go before SHE sleeps (with this quilt!). Of course this all transpired over the last few weeks when my computer was down in the dumps again and I did not have the capability of posting photos. So I took the above photo, thinking I had my next blog post lined up, and as it turned out, the quilt was completed before the computer was fixed!
So this is the finished quilt. The pattern is called "Yellow Brick Road" and I actually pieced the top a few years ago. The pattern is crib size but I enlarged it. I quilted blue free motion flowers over the entire top and then went back in and stippled around them in orange. I was inspired by the book Quilting in the Limelight by Philippa Naylor, which was given to me by my good cyber-friend Joanna. I have a long way to go before my quilting is as inspired as Philippa's, but I'm just glad that I actually completed the quilt before my daughter's tastes changed! Hopefully she will love it for a long time.
