Ok, it has taken me YEARS to finish this quilt! I just checked the history in our blog and I had it under construction in September of 2008... yikes! Well, now that I have a new sewing machine it has inspired me to finish up some of the old quilts that I have had laying around. On this quilt, I had most of the football shapes embroidered and had three more rows of them to finish, but I decided I probably was not going to finish them, so I cut them off and made the quilt smaller :) When I originally bought the fabric I really liked it, but now it is not one of my favorites so I figured if it was a little smaller that was okay and at least it is finished (and now my husband has one less unfinished quilt to nag me about - no, just kidding- he is really nice about not bringing up my unfinished works...).
So, here's to a good start to 2011 and maybe finishing up a couple more projects that have been laying around forever! - Jennifer
