First Finish of the Summer





One year, 1 month and 12 days, Cindy and I decided to start Crazy Quilting Friday.
Last night I completed this crazy quilt.
Not heavily embellished like others I have seen but quite satisfying to me.
It measure 62x73 and I am glad to call it done though my peacock motif is facing sideways. I am going to try to unstitch it and at least move it a bit.
