It is finished!!! Before Christmas I decided that for Brett's birthday I was going to make him a "bow tie" jean quilt. So I had Grandma Schwieder teach me how to do it and away I went. I have never made a queen size quilt before nor made a quilt where I didn't just cut out the blocks. This quilt was more involved than any I had done before and it is finished. It is such a feeling of accomplishment, and even though it was really time consuming I am so glad I did it. Unfortunately, Brett has already seen it. He knew it was a quilt and the day I got it done I was so excited that I left the door open to the room that it was in. Oops. I need to do better about keeping secrets, my problem is I just get too excited. Anyway, I had a lot of help from Grandma Schwieder and a lot of friends came to help tie the quilt as well which made it all the more enjoyable.
