The top is finally pieced. I won't lie. It wasn't enjoyable piecing. This quilt pattern is by no means difficult, complex yes but not difficult but I found the whole experience somehow tedious although the finished top looks fantastic.
I have a nagging feeling that my not so enjoyable quilting time may not be entirely down to the quilt pattern but more down to a massive quilt hangover from sewing frantically between October and December. So I have been gentle with myself and only pieced when I really felt up to it which is why the whole top took more than two weeks (and yes my upstairs studio was not cleaned the entire time...)
And here a glimpse of the quilt back. Although I absolutely love the Hometown collection and I would have easily had enough for another quilt I am determined to use it all on this quilt. So the quilt back will be pieced from Hometown too.
