After 17 months of fun and frivolity, my Noah and Matilda quilt is finally finished! I have enjoyed every stitch of this quilt! And, I have had so much fun watching others post their versions on Dawn’s Facebook page. There are so many fabulous renditions, it would be wonderful to have a “Noah and Matilda” exhibition someday – wouldn’t it Dawn – hint, hint!
Normally it would only take a few weeks to go from this
but with the holidays in between… let’s just say I feel justified in missing my goal of finishing in 2018 by just a few short days. Actually, it feels good to have this be my first finish of the new year.
The only thing I have struggled with on this quilt (except for a few minor do overs!) is what to name it. It has been my practice to give my potholder quilts a title with some reference to cooking. After much bantering about, I have gone back to my original thought. Since 2018 was our 40th anniversary year, I am calling it “Our Ruby Anniversary Cake”. Silly, but I could think of now other iterations that would work. Let me know if you have a better name for it.
Once again, I would like to thank Dawn (Collector with a Needle) and her daughter who drafted the patterns. They were a joy to work with and I highly recommend them!
My next long term applique project is one that has been running around my head for a while. I hope to start it soon before I am tempted by any more sew-a-longs. Thanks for sticking with me!!
