It is about time.

I made this quilt top for my son several years ago, but I have been slow to get it quilted. I am calling it Matthew's Maze as it is for my son Matthew and it looks like a maze to me.
When I took out the backing fabric, I found that I hadn't sewn it together yet. So I trimmed all the threads from the quilt top and ironed the quilt and the batting fabric. I sewed the backing fabric together and trimmed it to the correct size. I will be bringing it to the long-arm quilter sometime soon. Since my son will be moving into his first apartment soon in PA, I think it is about time that I finished it for him. 

I have also been spending a little time each night crocheting the background color on these Granny Square Roses.

 It is about time that I managed to connect these into an afghan as they have been around since before I began this blog in 2013. I have to see whether I want to put a plain square in between each rose or connect them right next to each other. I think it will depend on how many roses I actually have right now.

Finally, it was about time that Hubby and I managed to get to the beach to walk at night. We actually went down to the local town beach and saw a beautiful sunset!
The ducks are an added bonus in the picture.

If you look carefully you can see an egret in the middle of the bay.

Thanks for stopping by!

he is going to love a quilt made by you :) I love your squares and how you are getting them done a little bit each evening. I am like a manic person -all or nothing- and want to be a dabbler.
