going crazy...

So this is one of my very few finishes for last year.  I'm calling it Going Crazy.

It has been on my UFO list forever!  I started the quilt maybe 8 or 10 years ago and got it halfway quilted before putting it away.  Why stop there?  I simply can't remember...

It's made using several charm packs of an old 3 Sisters fabric line Chocolat.  I lucked out and found wovens and flannels from the same line.

The quilt is simply a bunch of hexagons sewn together.  However, there were a bunch of set in seams when joining the rows.  It's also the first time I've done a zig zag border, but it was easier to bind than I expected.

I love this quilt.  It's just so warm and snuggly looking.  For some reason I find it very comforting and I'm glad I finally finished it.

Size: 52" x 57"
Fabric: 3 Sisters Chocolat Charm Packs
Batting: Warm & Natural
Pattern: Hexagons

The other night my husband woke up during the night to loud snoring.  He thought it must be me until he noticed I wasn't in bed.  (FYI - I don't snore!)  Then he realized it was our cat Moses.  She's gained some weight in the last year and now she snores like a BANSHEE!

Think about all he endured when sinful people did such terrible things to him, so that you don’t become weary and give up. After all, you have not yet given your lives in your struggle against sin!” 
Hebrews 12:3-4
