The Quilt that Would Never Be Finished

Threads need to be cut.

And it needs a good press.

Then there's that whole issue of quilting and binding.

But there is a ZZQAL top. Finished. In my living room. 

(Because trekking out in the dark of winter seemed like a bad idea.)

Where does one take quilt photos at 7pm, anyway? 

OMG a Finished ZZQAL top!

There's a dark blue row and a purple row that's really not showing.
And that's maybe half the width.

I just had to document this as soon as possible.

The ZZQAL top is done.

Those that have been with me for any amount of time know how huge that is. 

I'm not ashamed to say that I'm outsourcing the quilting on this one.

It ended up massive (for me) at somewhere around 80" x 100". 

I don't think my machine and I could handle it. Not for the type of quilting I have in mind.

So it'll be packed up this week and shipped off. 

Wanna see my favorite part?

Taking the time to line up the Peep bodies:

ZZQAL Favorite part

My insane to-do list for the week suddenly seems a lot more manageable.

If I can finally finish this top, I think I can do anything.
