Recently I finished up my Square One quilt I blogged about last November. I began it a few years ago (yes, years), and finally finished up. One thing I do: I finish things - even if it takes me a long time. But that's how it goes when you have a house full of sweet children, summer in swing, painting projects (my family is sick of hearing about my gray paint woes), company in town, and constant trips to the pool. Sewing is such a great hobby for me, though. It doesn't have to be rushed, and it's one of the few things in my life that sits patiently and waits for me.
I changed the layout of this quilt to be a longer, narrower rectangle. Since Colorado cools down so nicely in the evenings, in the morning we use quilts to snuggle under as we have our quiet times. I wanted this quilt to be just wide enough to cover little toes, but long enough to cover multiple little bodies sitting in a row.

My, it feels good to finish something. And to be able to use it - even better!
