The Five Hour Quilt Top

School was out today (which was really yesterday since it's now after midnight), so the grandboys were here. It rained hard all morning so it was too wet to go outside until later. Here they are with my creeping phlox.Calista and I got busy and put together this quilt top. We did it in 5 hours and that includes 3,459 interruptions by Timothy.
After it's quilted it will go to the Little Lighthouse for their annual Garden Party Silent Auction to benefit the school which is for children with special needs.

Now here's a sneak peek of what I've been working on for about the last 2 years (and that's without 3,459 interruptions by Timothy). I got the last 2 borders on today and tomorrow I will put in the last few hand stitches to connect the border to the corners. More on that later. For now, I will say, "Happy Easter, He is Risen!"

Cute little and Calista both look great and the boys look ornery!

I want to see more of the applique quilt...pretty please?

Christ is Risen indeed! Hallelujah!

I like your 5 hour quilt! The narrow light sashing makes it light.

Ranette said exactly what I was going to say... "Christ is Risen indeed!"

Happy Easter!

The five-hour quilt is gorgeous! I love the Boutique fabric line. And that applique quilt has been on my do-do list for a while now. It's fun seeing it in bright happy colors.

I love it even more today! And I think your estimation of the number of interruptions from Timothy might be...a little low.
