On a small scale, this pattern is pretty easy but with a project of this size, I wasn't prepared for how heavy it was. It measures 84" x 24" -- I can't even imagine how heavy it would be if it were a standard quilt size.
Despite all of my meticulous calculations on paper, I made a mistake and cut too many squares. But hey, glass half full, right? I should have enough to make some coordinating throw pillows!
Trying to photograph this also proved to be a challenge so I finally decided to hoist it over our 2nd-floor bannister and get a shot of it from the landing stairs.
This was a true labor of love and I'm happy that it's finally done with almost 2 weeks to spare before the wedding. This project was on my list for the 3rd quarter of the 2016 Finish Along and my September goal. It's definitely one goal that I am happy to cross off my list.
