Angela ~ Journey Through Time Quilt is Finished!

The Journey Through Time quilt is finally completed.
And Chaucer approved!
It's almost square and slightly wonky as one edge stretched out a bit wider, but you only notice when you fold it so that's ok.  I am a practical quilter, no trying to go for prizes, just functionality.

I thought using flannel for the batting would make a lightweight quilt but it has turned out just the opposite.  This thing is very heavy.  So it's new home is decorating the back of the sofa.
A nice colorful addition to the living room.

I'm taking a little break from sewing in order to work on some other things but I'll be back in a couple weeks with a new project.
Our Texas Stars are blooming---they are dinner plate size.

Beautiful flower! The size is astonishing! Love the way the quilt looks on the floor and on the sofa. It adds color and warmth to the room, and on a cold day, you'll be so cozy!

Oh Angela, you have exceeded my expectation of this quilt would look when complete.
Absolutely gorgeous it is.
A great setting for it on the back of the sofa. Love it.
Journey Through Time is aptly named.

Fabulous job, Angela! It's guaranteed to be a family treasure. Is that flower related to hibiscus? It kind of looks like it except for the leaves. Very pretty!

Yes it is a type of hibiscus or mallow.
